As I had to help out at a Mothers' Day event at 3 pm, I decided to come up with one-dish meal so that I would not need to rush home to prepare dinner for my family. I checked what I had available: chinese mushroom, glutinous rice, chicken breast, roast pork and Chinese sausage. What a coincidence! These are the exact ingredients I need for "steam glutinous rice".


Ingredients A:
~ 1 kg glutinous rice (soaked in water for 4 hours, drained)
~ 1 1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic and shallots~ cooking oil 5 tablespoon
Note: keep 1/2  portion of chopped garlic n shallots for frying ingredients B.

~ 1 tablespoon dark soya sauce
~ 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
~ 1-2 teaspoon salt
~ 1 teaspoon sesame oil
~ 2 teaspoon sugar
~3/4-1 cup water
~ pepper to taste

fried shallots; ; red chillies; roasted peanuts;fresh coriander leaves; and chopped spring onions


1) Heat up 5 tbsp. oil to fragrant the chopped garlic and shallots, add in the glutinous rice, stir fry until fragrant. Transfer the rice into a big dish. Steam at high heat for 45 minutes or until cooked.

2) Heat some oil in a wok over medium high heat. When hot , add dried shrimps and fry until fragrant. Add chopped garlic and shallots, fry till turns light brown, add in the remaining ingredient of (B). Stir fry till the chicken is cooked.
