Coloring Rice Tutorial

How do you color rice that can be eaten? It’s really an easy process! You just add food coloring to the water before you add the rice.

Here is several drops of yellow food coloring in the water in our rice cooker. Then stir.


Then you add the rice & cook.

This is how it turns out. This was not super yellow. Of course Saffron rice could have been used for yellow.


Add more drops for darker colors. Here you can see where I added a lot of red food coloring for dark red which I used for Elmo.
