How do restaurants get green and red rice?

They cheat :) Once you have cooked your rice simply take a couple of spoons and put one of each in a pot. Cover with some food coloring and then spread out on some paper towel.

Allow to dry for 20 mins otherwise the colour will simply come off on your white rice and then sprinkle in or over your rice, simple eh?
