Lo Mai Kai 糯米鸡 (steamed savoury glutinous rice with chicken)

Lo Mai Kai (steamed savoury glutinous rice with chicken)

Today I bought some aluminium bowls to make Lo Mai Kai again as this is my family's favourite dim sum.

The price of the aluminium bowl i bought is RM 0.20 (USD 0.06) per bowl which consist of a bowl and cover, not that expensive huh...

This time I slightly adjusted the method and seasonings from the earlier Lo Mai Kai recipe as I lazy to cook the chicken and mushroom, but the result still good.

Sonia,

I tried this recipe. it is indeed very good. My family loved it!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. I have linked you to my post. Thanks!!!

Hi Sonia, this looks yummy. I normally steam the glutinous rice. For cooking using electric rice cooker, how much water do you add as compared to regular long grain rice? I guess how long you soak the rice for means less water required? Pls share your experience. Thanks.

Hi Sonia, please help me out.....I don't want to use the rice cooker to cook the rice. So does it mean I steam the rice 2 times? Once on its own without the chicken, mushroom and sausage and another time in the foil bowls with the chicken, mushroom and sausage? Hope you understand what I am asking about. Thanks!

teo ai li, you can check this fan choy recipe where I didn't cook rice in rice cooker
