How does one cook Bhutanese red rice? I bought some during a foray into the bulk bins (a favorite past-time) but now need to cook the stuff.

And I do mean "now," as in, "for dinner tonight." Thanks so much, PicklePals! ;o)

I just cook it like any other rice. It's just a little nuttier or richer than a more typical white or brown variety. I also use if for mixing blends.

yes, I agree with Greenstuff. I cooked it in my rice cooker, as I do my brown rice. It came out great. Definitely a little more al dente than other rice varieties, but I love it. I bet it makes great fried rice, if you have leftovers.

I've used it in jambalaya in place of white rice. Color and texture.

Package says 1.5 cups water to 1 cup rice - usual method for rice: bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer. Package says 20 minutes, and then let it stand a bit.

Also, I found it to have a slightly sweet profile when I tried it the first time, so I ended up making a dessert with it.
