Glutinous Rice with Chinese Smoked Meat

As Chinese New Year is celebrated over the period of 15 days, we do have some low-profile alternative besides the must-haves. When you've had too much of meat and fish, it would be good to cook something different with those smoked sausages or smoked duck you bought on that New year shopping trip.

Ingredients:

  • 500g glutinous rice, rinsed
  • 2 Chinese smoked sausages, thinly sliced
  • 1 chunk Chinese smoked duck, tear into strips
  • 5 Chinese mushrooms, soaked for 30 minutes and cut into small strips
  • 50g dried shrimp, soaked for 20 minutes and strained
  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon light soya sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, blended
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in a deep saucepan, quick-fry the dried shrimps and garlic paste. Stir in the smoked duck, smoked sausage and mushroom and fry for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in glutinous rice and stir-fry on medium for about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the fried ingredients into a rice cooker, then mix in the vegetable stock, soya sauce, and sugar.
  4. Cook the rice in the cooker till it is done.
  5. Garnish with spring onion.

Versatility Note:

  1. If you do not own a rice cooker, try using a deep tray and cook in a steamer.
  2. Smoked duck and sausage are both salty so there is no need to add any more salt.
  3. If you do not have fresh stock, use a stock cube with 600ml of water.
