I have been having rice since I was a toddler. I love rice and I get excited when I discover new ways of eating it. This Korean mixed cereal +14 from Seoul Plaza 4 (136 Golders Green Road, London, NW11 8HB, Tel 020 8731 7999 ) is an interesting find.

14 cereals? Yes, it is a mixture of glutinous rice, brown rice, brown glutinous rice, barley grains, buckwheat rice, black glutinous rice, unshelled grains of adlay, hulled glutinous millet, millet, grains of kaoliang, green beans, red beans, mung beans and white beans.

I recommend cooking it with a little more water than normal or else it will feel a little dry. When the rice is cooked, it has a nice hint of pink (thanks to red beans!). It has a more stimulating texture than the usual soft white rice and it has a nice nutty flavour. It also has more fibre and hence aids digestion. You can use it to replace white rice to accompany any dish.
