Procedure:

Purple rice, also known as "forbidden black rice" is one of my favorite grains. It's not very well-known and should NOT be mistaken for wild rice, which is also black. Wild rice is a very long grain with stiff toothsome texture and a nutty flavor; purple rice is a short grain sweet/sticky/glutinous rice (not *glutenous*, though!). It has a unique sweet almost fruity flavor unlike any other grain I've ever had, and I've been trying to figure out what to do with it for a while.
