How to Make Korean Purple Multigrain Rice

  • Author: Seonkyoung Longest


  • 1 cup short or medium grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup beta glucan mixed rice (beta glucan mixed rice has baby pressed barley, pressed barley & black rice. Any other mixed grain with black rice will work.)
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup short to medium grain brown rice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a rice cooker you are using. Wet rice with enough cold water and rubbing rice with your hand. You will see water turns cloudy. Rinse off cloudy water and drain, Repeat this process 4 to 5 times or until the water is clear.  At last rinse, drain water as much as possible.
  2. Level rice out and gently place your hand flat on top of the rice. Add enough water so it comes up to the crease of your knuckle. For the best result of multi grain rice, I highly recommend to use electronic pressure rice cooker like Cuckoo. You can also use Instapot or any other pressure cooker you have. If you’re not using Cuckoo (even it’s pressure cooker, I highly recommend soaking the rice for 2 to 8 hours.) I highly recommend soaking the rice for 2 to 8 hours.
  3. Cook the rice with multi grain rice option. Enjoy!
