Kavuni Arisi Payasam / Black Rice / Chak Hao Kheer with Jaggery

     Black Rice / Kavuni Arisi Paysam is very very odd looking blackish pink colored payasam. The dry grapes are almost indistinguishable. The sudden spice of sweetness when you bite the dry grapes without knowing gives kavuni arisi payasam its unique culinary effect.
     Black Rice Kheer is very popular in Manipur where it is called "Chak Hao Kheer". Black Kavuni Rice was once served only for royal family in china. It was called "Forbidden Rice” because it was denied to the General public. It was also called Purple Rice or Magic Rice because it changes color after cooked.
     Black rice is high in nutritional value and is a source of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants. The outermost layer of black rice contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants found in food. Kavuni Arisi payasam is a great way to make people have Kavuni Arisi.

    Kids mostly like the blackish pink color and my kid really relished it.
