Loh Mai Kai ( Steamed Savoury Glutinous Rice)

I have to finish up a bag of glutinous rice which I kept for quite some time ago, thus I cook Loh Mai Kai for today lunch.

*can make about 12 bowls of Loh Mai Kai

Ingredients:
1kg glutinous rice, wash clean and soak for 4hours or more
12pcs dried mushrooms (soak to shorten)
2 Chinese dried sausages (sliced)
800gm of Chicken ( cut small pieces)
Ginger ( pounded and get the juices)
water

Steps:-

1. Rinse and drain soaked glutinous rice. Heat oil in a wok, add in glutinuous rice, season with 3tbs salt, 2tbsp sugar and 2tbsp of light soy sauce. Cook for a while, then pour into rice cooker, add water and cook.Set aside.

2. Heat 2tbsp sesame oil in a hot wok, add in chicken pieces, ginger juices and mushroom, stir fry for a while, then add in water and cook for 15mins. Season with 2tbsp of light soy sauce, 1tbsp of oyster sauce, 2tbs of salt,1tbs of sugar and 1tbs of Chinese wine.Set aside.

3. Pan fry Chinese sausage slices till brown.

4. Place 1-2 cooked chicken pieces, Chinese sausages and mushroom on a metal bowl or aluminium foil cup, then scoop cooked glutinous rice on top.

5. Steam over high heat for 30mins. You may serve with chicken floss (optional).

My tip: cook the glutinous rice first in a rice cooker , this is to shorten the steaming time.


Do enjoy Cooking !!!

I love Loh Mai Kai...yum, yum...
Good use of pink as back ground for this pics..it does bring out the loh mai kai dish and great lighting too.

Palidor said...

That looks delectable! I like that the rice is nicely seasoned. Sometimes when you get that dish in restaurants, there is barely any soy sauce on the rice.

Hi Sonia, saw your earlier post on the chicken rice recipe. Would you be able to advise me how to make the chicken tasty? Cos the boiled chicken that I made is always tasteless, though I had put salt into the boiling water and also rub a bit of salt to chicken after cooked. :(

Thanks alot.

Nate-n-Annie said...

This is yummy, especially with the Chinese sausages.

Don't some people wrap this in lotus leaf before steaming?

Sonia said...

Horlic, homemade one, can add as many of ingredients

LCOm, I like the huge mushroom too
