Savoury Glutinous rice (糯米饭)

I wanted to attempt Nonya Dumpling this year as I was craving for it.  Got myself a 2.5kg bag of glutinous rice and then realised that somewhere hidden in the pantry, there were more bags of glutinous rice!!

Despite being busy clearing out clothings that my girl can no longer wear and accessories that she has outgown, I was able to squeeze in some time to prepare this Savoury Glutinous Rice  (糯米饭).  

Didn't I tell you that this is really easy to prepare.

I have attempted this many time and my family love it.

What you need

600g glutinous rice
80g dried mushroom (soak with water)
100g dried shrimps (wash and drain)
250g pork belly/lean pork
50g chinese sausages (optional) (slice thinnly)
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


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.
