Albino purple sweetcorn

Saw this strange looking sweetcorn, not the normal golden yellow, but in a variety of colours, light yellow and purple, so I got some to try. Boiled it for 10 minutes.

Taking the first bite, wow this stuff is chewy, and hard, it texture is very similar to that of barley, wheat kernels. In context to asian food, its texture is like glutinous rice.

After researching it on the net, found out that it is called Glutinous rice sweet corn.

Taste wise, not sweet at all, just slightly salty, and a little starchy, especially after it cools down and the corn starts to deflate and shrivel up.
