Soak the black rice and glutinous rice in water for one night in advance.
Black rice has a tough seed coat on the outside, which is not easy to boil, so black rice should be soaked overnight before cooking. If black rice is not boiled, not only will most of the signature nutrients be insoluble, but it will also cause acute gastroenteritis after consumption, especially for children with weak digestive functions and the elderly. Therefore, this delicacy adopts the method of first soaking and then steaming twice, which is more conducive to the precipitation of nutrients in the black rice, and the taste of the black rice will be better. Because black rice is harder, the adhesion is not particularly good. Adding a little glutinous rice can make the black rice softer and stronger.
Three important partners of nourishing black rice: longan, red dates, and raisins.
Longan contains more iron, which is very effective in replenishing blood. It can effectively promote hemoglobin regeneration and thus promote blood flow. Effective sleep is very necessary for health care. Eating longan has a good effect on promoting sleep, can replenish brain cells, and is very effective for eliminating fatigue. Women's physique tends to be negative. If they are not treated in time, they will often have a cold physique over time. Longan is a warm-sex ingredient and is very effective in neutralizing yin and yang. Proper consumption of longan is very beneficial for warming the body.
Red dates contain a certain amount of iron, and red dates also contain vitamin C, and vitamin C can better promote the absorption of iron. Eating red dates appropriately every day has obvious benefits in preventing and correcting iron deficiency anemia. For women who are more commonly upset and insomnia, restless, insomnia, dreaminess, and neurasthenia caused by lack of heart and blood, if you properly eat red dates every day, you can nourish blood and calm the nerves and promote sleep by nourishing your blood.
Raisins are rich in iron. For women with pale face and cold hands and feet, eating some raisins every day can help improve this symptom. The iron content of raisins is 15 times that of fresh grapes. In addition, raisins also contain a variety of minerals, vitamins and amino acids. They are a good product for people who are weak and anemia.
Put the two types of soaked rice into the rice cooker. If you want the black rice to be softer, you can add water that is level with the ingredients. The water must not be too much. The black rice and glutinous rice will not absorb too much water after soaking. It takes a little less than our usual cooking. If you want to eat harder, just steam it directly in the water, no need to add water.
I use the Zhen rice cooker pressure cooker, which has its own micro-pressure function, which can save cooking time. The cooked rice has clear grains, crystal clear, sweet and elastic teeth, and has a particularly good taste!
4. When cooking black rice, we can deal with the actual ingredients. Peel the dried longans and soak the dried longans in boiling water for about half an hour. The meat of the dried longans becomes soft. Put the red dates in and clean them. The red dates do not need to be soaked, just wash them out.
5. Cut the longan and red dates with scissors, remove the pits and cut into small particles, and cut the raisins slightly.
6. Take a rice bowl and apply oil to prevent sticking.
7. Add the red dates, longan and raisins to the cooked black rice while it is hot, and mix well.
8. Use a rice spoon to scoop up the rice and put it in a bowl. If you like to eat it sweeter, you can sprinkle some brown sugar powder on the surface and press it down slightly.
9. Put it in the rice cooker again.
10. Steam it in water for half an hour, and the nutritious black rice is ready to be cooked! Both black rice and glutinous rice should be eaten while they are hot. They are sweet and elastic, and the more they chew, the more delicious they are!
Adding a little glutinous rice to black rice will make the taste softer and easier to stick. Both ingredients need to be soaked in advance, if time is too late, at least soak for more than an hour.
The amount of red dates, longans, and raisins can be slightly adjusted according to your own preferences. If you like to eat sweet, put more, reduce the intake of sugar, which is better for your health.
In the autumn and winter season, women tend to be afraid of the cold. This nutritious black rice can be eaten more, it can nourish blood and soothe the nerves, and the taste is quite good, but please note that glutinous rice and coarse grain products are easier to digest when eaten hot.
