Cooking rice porridge or congee is my favourite for 2 main reasons. Firstly my family loves it very much no matter how I cook it and secondly it is very easy to cook and you can go wild with your creativity.
I have been eating a lot of porridge since my stomach upset last week. It was easy for the stomach as I didn’t have much appetite. I progressed from plain porridge to vegetables porridge and then finally with some eat added. Char siu chicken porridge was my best. I only had 2 small slices of the chicken then. Just thought my stomach needed more rest.
I made char siu chicken very often so making this char siu chicken rice porridge is very easy. Click here for the easiest way to make this most delicious char siu chicken that’s extremely versatile.
A small dish of flaked salted fish will add to the beautiful taste of the porridge. Of course this is optional. If you buy the salted fish like what I did this time, soak it first before frying it to remove some of the saltiness. It will taste better.
I also cooked a plate of mixed vegetables to add to it, even though there’s already some vegetables in the porridge itself. You can cook any vegetables of your choice. Just sprinkle some sea salt and pepper powder for taste.
Cooking porridge is very easy. You can cook it plain or with some vegetables added. Usually I cook it plain but sometimes I added some vegetables, like carrots and big onions, and fried ginger oil to cook together with it for better flavour and taste.
Congee is very filling and warming especially in this cold weather. My family had a very satisfying meal.
