How to make a Fancy Rainbow/ Colorful rice for special events


I’ve seen colorful macaroni and it looks so yuck I guess the colors are to dead, but for some strange reason I’ve been, wanting to try a colorful rice to see how it will look. So on Saturday 3rd of March 2013 I was about to fulfill my little historic invention of coloured rice. I am sure your kids would love this at their birthday party or it can even be a motivation for them to eat their food. My nephew was overwhelmed when he saw it he was like aunty that looking so pretty.


INGREDIENTS

1. 3 Cups of rice (You can use any amount desired for yourself or family)

2. ½ or ¼ tsp of salt

3. Different coloursof colouring


ITEMS NEEDED TO PREPARE RICE

1. A pot to boil water, to cook rice

2. A rice drainer

3. A large bowl

4. A small/medium size bowl

5. A tbsp


INSTRUCTIONS for making rainbow/ pretty coloured rice

Wash/clean rice thoroughly then put a pot of water to boil when water is fully boiled add ½ or ¼ tsp of salt and stir around in the boiling water, then add rice and leave to cook. You can approximate the time for when your rice will be fully cooked some people like their rice soft others semi hard.

After rice is cooked strain rice in a rice strainer and leave to dry. When rice is finished drying, take the medium bowl and add rice till its half full, have your colourings ready and sprinkle or pour a little of one colour into the rice that’s now in the medium bowl and mix and stir until it is properly coloured. Then place this batch of rice into the large bowl in one corner. Rinse out the medium bowl and repeat the same procedure for every colour until finished you can use as much colours as you like. Remember not to put the other coloured rice on top each other, each colour should be placed in a little section of the bowl until fully dried off with the colouring, also do not add much colouring as this can make your rice taste bitter a little tip can do a whole lot of colouring.

After all batches of rice is fully dried in the large bowl you can now mix all the colours together with a pot spoon so that you will see the prettiness of the rice. I know you will enjoy making this lovely looking rice.

      Oh, how pretty!!! This looks like something you could serve for a spring party - or, as Jackie said, for Easter. Looks like a good way to get kids to eat food they might not want to eat otherwise. I used to want blue food when I was a kid.
