Rice Bean Soup

'Cheh Sek Tau' otherwise known as rice bean is used as a soup remedy to strengthen the back of those suffering from lower back pain. In the above photo, 2 types of rice bean is shown. The one on the left is dark maroon brown in color (bought in Malaysia) and the black colored beans (right) are from China. I suppose they are both rice bean but of a different species.
