Steamed savoury glutinous rice ~ 'Loh Mai Fan'


I notice that recently there are quite a number of posts on glutinous rice from fellow bloggers.  As I too have a soft spot for this sticky rice, I made this ..........'Steamed savoury glutinous rice'. 










I really enjoyed tucking into this tasty 'Loh Mai Fan' and can't stop at one helping.  So ended up with having this for dinner as well!

Ingredients
  • 600 gm glutinous rice - washed and soaked for 7  hours
  • 10 dried shitake mushrooms, washed and soaked to soften, diced
  • 40 gm dried shrimps, washed
  • 150 gm pork fillet, diced
  • 1 egg 
  • 5 shallots, peeled and sliced
  • Spring onions for garnishing
  • Sesame oil
  • 200 ml water
Seasoning 
  • 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp sugar
  • 1  tsp chicken granules
  • 1  tsp salt
Preparation
  1. Wash and soak the glutinous rice for about 7 hours, then drain the rice of the water.
  2. Season the diced pork fillet with a dash of pepper, a bit of light soya sauce, sesame oil and some salt..
  3. Heat up a wok with 3 Tbsp oil, shallow fry the sliced shallots till light brown.  Dish out and set aside.
  4. With the remaining oil in the wok, stir-fry the dried shrimps, add in the seasoned meat and diced mushrooms.  Add in the water, mix in the drained glutinous rice.
  5. Add in the seasoning and mix well.  Test for taste and sprinkle in some more water if necessary.
  6. Transfer the rice mixture into a steaming plate and steam  under rapidly boiling water for 1 hr. 15 mins.
  7. After 30 mins. sprinkle in some water and you can sprinkle more water if you prefer the rice to be softer and also steam a bit longer.
  8. Meanwhile lightly beat up the egg, add in pepper, light soya sauce.  Fry into an omelette, roll up and cut into strips.
  9. Dish up the glutinous rice into bowls, press lightly, and invert it onto plates before serving.
  10. Garnish with the chopped spring onions, shallot crisps, omelette strips and a light dash of pepper.
  11. Serve hot.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
