When I spotted red raisins in the supermarket I instantly knew what I wanted to do with them: throw them into a bowl of black rice together with cape gooseberries.



  1. In a pot with tight fitting lid, bring water to the boil. Add a pinch of salt (optional) and black rice. Bing to the boil again and cook with tightly closed lid for 40 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer rice to a bowl, allow to cool and add all other ingredients.
