We all need some colour in our life so here’s a little something for Today
“All Natural Blue Matcha Rice“
made using Butterfly Pea Powder from Finch
This recipe is super simple and can be served with any kind of side dish but i decided to pair with Malaysian inspired dishes today because this prominently blue flower grown in tropical climate is commonly used in South East Asian Cuisine.
The rice is cooked like usual,but infused with lemongrass and kafir lime leaves.
Butterfly Pea flower : also known as Asian Pigeon Wing is most often consumed in the form of a caffeine free herbal drink which has proved to improve your mood by detoxifying your body hence promoting weight loss and enriching skin and hair…
Here’s a little science experiment for you : The Butterfly Pea Infused liquid is PH sensitive,reacting to anything acidic by changing colour from blue to pinkish purple.Try squeezing some lime and you’ll see the magic happen….
This special flower is hand picked and milled into powder form by Finch,just to make life easier for you and me…
