What’s better, black or white? And why is ‘rice’ a word, not a cuisine?
If I’m not mistaken, the word ‘rice’ means a certain type of rice—a type that’s been eaten for thousands of years. This has a few meanings:
(1) Rice is the best protein-rich raw food. This is most likely because the rice itself is rich in vitamin C, which is needed to keep the body strong and to give energy. It also contains trace minerals such as copper, manganese, iron, magnesium and phosphate. However, if you add a little salt, the taste is mild, but not unpleasant. In fact, it’s quite good.
(2) Rice is an excellent source of protein. In turn, it’s a good source of amino acids and amino acids are especially important to the brain and nervous system. However, in its pure form, protein usually doesn’t taste good and, therefore, it’s hard to get. This is why rice tastes best when cooked, but I bet you can feel the difference.
(3) Rice is made into a kind of batter—which sounds good, but that’s actually bitter. It’s made almost like batter and contains sugar which, as we’ve seen, is bitter enough, as we’re talking of sugars. But when it’s mixed with milk, cream and spices, it becomes a smooth, light yellow-brown paste called ‘rice paste’. It looks like it’s going to be delicious for breakfast!
There’s a reason why rice is called ‘rice’ in India. According to the legend, the king of India (Yajnavalkya I) saw something that made him dizzy and had to flee! He asked his son for some rice, but when Yajnavalkya’s son heard the king, he thought to himself, “This is why I want to be king!” Hence, they nicknamed him ‘saffron King’. He started a rice trade, where people of South India first cultivated rice for its health benefits and later, it got introduced to Europeans!
As mentioned in the story, it’s quite rare to find something called ‘rice paste’ and so, it turns out, it’s actually white rice, which actually is a kind of milk powder and is white in colour. The reason for the confusion is that the word ‘rice’ came into use in South Asia before it got introduced to Europe. But the word ‘paste’ has come
