Yummy Glutinous Rice 糯米饭

Glutinous rice is my forever fave. In Malaysia, you can get glutinous rice in the form of dumplings (bakchang, 粽子), or with sliced chicken ( 糯米鸡)available in dimsum restaurant, or plain glutinous rice with toasted peanut and spring onions as garnish from pasar (Malay, meaning market) or pasar malam (Malay, meaning night market). I like the latter the most.

When I'm away from home, this is a dish I often like to make. And whenever I cook this dish, I will normally make many servings in order to share it with other Malaysians. Everyone would savour this dish as much as I do. Nothing beats a little flavour from home, when you are away from home.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of glutinous rice
  • 1 cup Chinese dried black mushrooms
  • 3 Chinese sausages
  • 1/4 cup of dried shrimps
  • 5 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp Chinese Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • Cooking oil
  • Water, or broth
  • A dash of white pepper
  • Salt
Garnish:
  • 1/4 cup toasted peanut
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced spring onion (or scallions)


Method:
  1. Wash and rinse the glutinous rice. Cover rice with cold water by 1 inch in a large bowl and soak at least 5 hours (I normally soak my rice overnight). Drain in a sieve and rinse well under cold running water.
  2. Soak mushrooms in warm water, then drain, squeezing out excess liquid. Rinse mushrooms to remove any grit, then discard stems and coarsely chop caps.
  3. Coarsely chop Chinese sausages into tiny pieces.
  4. Peel and slice thinly all the garlic.
  5. Heat a wok over high heat. Add cooking oil and heat, swirling in wok. Add chopped garlic and stir-fry 30 seconds.
  6. Add dried shrimps and stir-fry till you get the aroma of dried shrimps. Then add in Chinese sausages and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Next, add in mushrooms and stir-fry 1 minute.
  7. Add in drained rice and stir-fry for 30 sec.
  8. Stir in dark soy sauce, soy sauce, Sesame oil, white pepper, salt to taste. (Note: At this stage, do not be afraid to make the mixture saltier as the salty taste will get reduced during the steaming process while water/broth is added to the mixture)
  9. Transfer mixture to a deep metal bowl and add water/broth until the liquid completely cover rice.
  10. In the wok, add in some boiling water. Place the deep metal bowl above a support stand over the water. Bring to a simmer, stir once, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 25-35 minutes more, then remove from heat.
  11. During the process you must check the water level (underneath the bowl). If you prefer your glutinous rice to be moister, you may add in more liquid into the rice mixture in the midst of steaming.
  12. Stir from bottom to distribute ingredients and let stand in room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with toasted peanut and spring onions. To kick it up a notch, add in shallot crisps.


Voilà!

voonseng, it's never too tough to give these recipes a try. to me, it's the best way to cure my homesickness.

samm, kudos to your work. stay in the path that you've chosen. i'm having you as my role model.

sansan,'sifu'? i'm flattered. ha, i'm not that skillful yet. give them a try, and you'll be on your way to your own sifu at no time!

dear g.rabbit, frankly, i'm contemplating whether or not to skip this meme. my 23rd post is a post in Chinese ... guess I can use such reason to escape from such task?

foodcrazee, aren't you the chef? chef will never go on diet! as for your suggestion, I will normally have my glutinous rice with sweet sauce and chilli sauce, but never really with chili padi. hmm, maybe it's worth a try!

CC, fantabulous? haha, thanks, but, you know, a gal gotta do what a gal have to. it's my medicine for my homesickness.

maria, haha, really? so you all don't like dumplings (bakzhang) and loh mai gai?

big bok, yeah, you're right, it is a bit hassle to make this. but i shall say, it's well worth the effort ...

vagus, a good idea for your up-coming Halloween night party perhaps?

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Сегодня стало популярным заниматься арендой, сдачей, покупкой и продажей дач через Всемирную сеть. Кроме двух заинтересованных сторон, в этой области работают еще и агентства недвижимости, риэлторы и даже консультанты, дающие устные консультации с помощью разных средств коммуникаций.
[url=http://kvartorg.com/view/185097/]жк альпийский городок[/url]

И это не новшество. Так, если раньше мы покупали через Интернет всякие товары, то почему бы в наши дни не заняться поиском квартиры или дома, либо его покупкой? Конечно, многие такому методу покупки и поиска просто не доверяют, потому как известны случаи мошенничества, однако коммуникации удобнее и быстрее, чем Интернет, еще не придумали.

Сегодня вы можете найти немало порталов, где находятся разные объявления о любых способах операций с недвижимостью, благодаря этому вы сможете быстро отыскать то, что вас заинтересует. Тем более, вы не будете приобретать недвижимость «слепо», поскольку сможете без труда увидеть и рассмотреть приглянувшийся вариант.

На нашем ресурсе вы сможете прочитать немало нужной вам информации в нише недвижимости, поговорите с теми, кто продает недвижимость или желает ее арендовать, при этом вся информация о недвижимости также выложена на портале, благодаря чему люди будут в курсе всех дел.
