This rare velvety purple rice, naturally farmed in Manipur, is popularly called Black Rice. In ancient times, Black rice was a royal delicacy and forbidden for the common man.
Today, Black rice is vastly cultivated in North East India, and is treasured for its medicinal properties. Commonly known as Chak-hao, it forms the center of Manipuri celebratory feasts. The literal meaning of ‘Chakhao’ is delicious rice.

The deep-purple hues, nutty flavor, refreshing aroma and earthy texture make this rice a perfect fit for any plate and palate. A popular choice among new-age chefs to cook up nuanced delicacies, our black rice can substitute white or brown rice with its superior health benefits and sophisticated flavors.

Full of antioxidants, mainly ‘anthocyanin' (even higher levels than blueberries) makes it a preferred choice by nutritionists world over for patients with diabetes and heart ailments. Considered a ‘superfood’, it offers a very high amount of flavonoid phytonutrients, in addition to being a good source of proteins, Vit E, fiber, minerals and plant based protein.
