Black rice

black rice sushi roll -vegan recipeBlack rice makes your sushi rolls look spectacular, mainly because it makes your food look unique due to it not being used very often in sushi making because it’s notoriously difficult to work with, unlike Japonica short grain rice, black rice is not very sticky and takes a very long time to cook.

If you want to make sushi with black rice then there are two ways to go about it:

  1. cook the rice twice in the rice cooker adding the same amount of water twice.
  2. cook the black rice first then add white rice and water again to cook for the second time.

I prefer option two, because sushi rice (Short grain Japonica rice) acts like glue which will hold together the black rice better when rolling.

you can buy black rice in health shops and some large supermarkets, if you cant find any near you bellow is a link to buy some black rice from amazon, I find its easier to order online then to go on a scavenger hut to find a place that sells black rice.

Hi Davy, can you please state how much water you have to use per cup of black rice? also when you want to use method two, what is the ratio for white and brown rice (half and half) does white rice need the same amount of water?

Thank you!
