Red rice is a variety of rice that is unhulled. This simply mans that only the outer hard husk is removed, leaving the inner covering or bran in tact. As a result often of the rice’s germ remaining intact, red rice has a higher nutritional content then white rices. It has a fuller more meaty flavour as well and tends to fill you up quicker. Red rice is a wholesome alternative to white rice that adds spectacular colour to your dishes.
