Product use question – green flat rice

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 Shopping at the local Asian market today, I found something new, so I bought it. Can anyone tell me how to use/cook with this please?

I really don't know where it's from, but the ingredients say 99% rice, and pandam (I presume this gives the green color). The store clerks speak very little of what I do, and aren't really interested in sharing cooking tips - hence my query.

I did see this page, but it didn't help. Most recipes for "green rice", or even green flat rice, call for herbs/vegetables for the green color. This isn't what I have.

Is it from Vietnam? Then it's probably this.

Perhaps. The article says that the rice is roasted, and this product gives no indication of roasting. As well, Com should be eaten withing 24 hrs of producing, which is also not applicable here.

This is it! Thank-you so very much!

So BonVivant was right, I stand corrected.

Two things caught my eye, in the article and the comments:  it can be used to make ice cream, and that it can also be used in an Indian dish (Poha). I had seen Poha elsewhere, but in the finished dish the rice was not green.

Thanks very much to all of you! I'll experiment, and post finished pictures. Happy weekend!

It says on the packet that it's from Vietnam.

@liuzhou:  you are also correct. The print is very tiny, and I couldn't read it in the artificial light last night. This morning with daylight I found the origin.

Note to self:  eat more carrots, and clean glasses more often ^_^.
