Today I again cook this one dish meal because my hubby is away for business trip from home, he doesn't appreciate much of this kind of rice, but me and kids just love it.

I took these pictures at the same spot which I took the old pictures with old camera last time, but this time look better with new camera right? hehehe..


Savoury steamed glutinous rice

200g belly pork, cut cubed
15 shallots, peeled & sliced thinly
40g dried prawns, wash & soaked
15 dried oyster, wash & soaked & cut into cubed, (optional)
10 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked and cut into cubed
200ml water

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp salt, or to taste
1tbsp light soy sauce
1tbsp sugar

Toasted/fried peanuts
Spring onions, chopped

1. Heat the oil in a wok and fry the shallot over medium-low heat, fry till crispy and golden brown. Dish out and set aside to cool.
2. Use the remaining shallot oil in the wok. Over medium heat, stir-fry the meat, dried prawns and mushroom until aromatic.
3. Add in the drained glutinous rice, and add in the seasoning. Stirring and mix well for 1 -2 mins.
4. Transfer the rice into a steaming tray, sprinkle water on top of the rice.
5. Steam for 60mins ( stir rice for every 30mins, sprinkle some water when necessary).
6. Serve rice topped with shallot crisps, peanuts and spring onion.

The reason I seldom use glutinous rice is I have to soak many hours in advance. What if I have soaked them and decided not to cook them? :O

Tangled Noodle said...

Glutinous rice is my absolute favorite but I've never really learned to make it properly. This is just the kind of recipe that I can start with!

Bakericious said...

this looks so delicious, my hubby like to eat but due to his sensitive stomach, ve to be restrict from it.

Anonymous said...

I dont understand one part! 200 ml of water is to use in the wok for steaming or to mix together with the rice for steaming? ( does it require any water to cook the glutinous rice, like cooking rice )??
