Recipe: Porridge / congee

leave a comment »

A loved one is suffering from diarrhea, so we are having congee for lunch.

Serves 2 | Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 50 minutes

INGREDIENTS:
rice + water. Thick ratio of rice : water = 1 : 8, medium = 1 : 10, thin = 1 : 13

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS:
red dates
wolfberries
dried scallops
dried silver fish
dried shrimp
mushrooms
pandan leaves

After the water boil, half close the lid.
Important: Stir occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking together or to the bottom of the pot, especially the last 15 minutes.

To be environmental friendly:
Do not throw the murky rice water away but use it to water your plants.
For my case, I only have pandan, and I can use the pandan leaves for cooking.
