Gluten free eggless double chocolate black rice cake.
A very healthy and delicious eggless cake with a nutty taste of black rice.
Black rice is more nutritious than brown rice. Its an excellent source of fiber, amino acid, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
In China and some South-East Asian country it is known as “Forbidden Rice” because it was reserved exclusively for the Royals in ancient China.
Black rice is healthier than the good old white. Black rice, an Asian staple that’s always been part of northeastern cooking in India, is making a huge comeback and so is the nutty-flavoured red rice
Black rice is gluten-free, gut-friendly, a natural cleanser and heart-savvy. The Asian basic, also called Chakhao in Manipur, is popping up at supermarts all over the world as the super-food to get hold of. The bran hull of black rice, which is the outermost layer of the rice grain, contains one of the highest levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin found in any known food. “Black rice is lower in calories but higher in protein content as compared to brown, red or white rice. Its antioxidant content is almost six times higher than other varieties of rice,” confirms Dr Kaur
