Savoury Gluntinous Rice

Hubby invited his army mates over for tea.  Its sure been a long time I last saw them.   I prepared something simple for the guys.  

Savoury Glutinous Rice is easy to put together and thus I don't have to really spend a long time in the kitchen. 

I have done this several times and is always well like by my family.

What you need 

600g glutinous rice
100g dried mushroom (soak with water)
100g dried shrimps (wash and drain)
250g pork belly/lean pork
50g chinese sausages (optional) (slice thinly)
100g shallots (small onions)
350ml water
1 tsp salt or to taste


2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp light soya sauce
2 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp pepper
½ tbsp sesame oil


Wash the glutinous rice and soak in water for about 1 hour. Drained.

Soak mushroom till soften and slice

Slice pork and shallots thinly

Use half of the seasonings to season the mushroom and the other half for the pork.

Fry the sliced shallots and set a side and do the same with the dried shrimps.

Fry the mushroom well then add the pork and fry for about 5 minutes

Add the glutinous rice and then the mushrooms and pork.

Put in half the amount of fried shallots, dried shrimps, pork and salt.

Fry for a few minutes.

When it is well mixed, add in the water and turned off the flame. Stir well.

Put into a big pan and steam for 40 minutes or until done.

You may sprinkle some water on it if you find the glutinous rice is still hard or uncooked.

Garnish with cilanto and fried shallots and serve hot.
