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.

Puff Pastry Nian Gao ~ 酥皮年糕

Each Chinese New Year, I would get a Nian Gao, sticky rice cake as an offering for prayers as Nian Gao is a homonym for  'higher year',  which symbolises increasing prosperity and higher achievement for the coming year.  Therefore it is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this period.  Instead of frying the Nian Gao with batter like what I did 'here', this time I chose to just wrap it up with a piece of puff pastry and dump it into the oven, and the ultimate result,  yummy gluey Nian Gao with crispy pastry!





Puff Pastry Nian Gao   ~   酥皮年糕
Ingredients 10 small pieces of Nian Gao about 1.1/2 x 3/4 x 1/2 inch  10 pieces of 4 x 4 inch Kawan puff pastry Egg glaze
Method Place a piece of Nian Gao onto a piece of puff pastry Apply beaten egg all round the edges Roll up, and use a fork to seal the two ends Place seams side down onto a parchment lined baking tray Apply egg glaze Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for about 15 to 20 mins. Serve warm
