The world of teas has seen roasted rice being incorporated into drinks like the Korean’s Sungnyung to Genmaicha (Green Tea with Roasted Rice) of Japanese roots. Taking inspiration from these, we played around using our homegrown heirloom rice. As a one-ingredient recipe, you can't go wrong with it. Beras Salleh is our perfect candidate as it's medium-grain rice size provides better flavour extraction.
All you’ll Need: 100g Beras Salleh (makes 10x servings) & Water!
Part 1 : Roasted Rice
1: Place the Beras Salleh in a pan. Slowly swirl the pan around or use a spatula to keep the rice moving on medium heat. Do this until you reach an even browning on the rice.
2: Once evenly browned with specks of whites, turn the heat off and let it cool.
Part 2: From Roasted Rice to Tea
1: Measure 10 grams of the roasted rice in a cup
2: Pour 100 grams of boiling water and let it steep for 5 mins
3: After 5 minutes, the tea is ready!
Bonus: Add your favorite green tea to the Roasted Rice and you’ll have your own Genmaicha
This Roasted Rice Tea is a good and calming nighttime drink as it doesn’t contain any caffeine and doesn't disrupt your sleep.
