My children are craving for this porridge since we had it quite sometime ago. It's simple comfort food and healthy too. Boil your own chicken stock to get best taste or you could use ready made chicken cube. Instead of chicken, thinly sliced meat or fish would be the best alternative. The following recipe serves 4-5 persons.


200g chicken pieces skin removed
1/2 in ginger sliced
1 big onion thickly sliced
5 peppercorns
2 cloves garlic sliced

2 cups rice washed and drained
4 slices ginger chopped
5 shallots sliced
2 cloves garlic chopped
3 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper to taste
spring onion chopped
red chili sliced


1. Boil the ingredients for stock until chicken is tender, remove and shred the chicken. Strain the stock.

2. Heat the oil, fry shallot, garlic and ginger until fragrant.

3. Add the rice, chicken stock and water, cook until rice is soft and thick, add more water if required.

4. Now add the shredded chicken, salt and pepper as per your taste.

5. Serve hot, sprinkle spring onion and red chili on top.

Huh. Interesting. Sounds similar to a dish my mom used to make called "Chicken and Rice," only she would have used horrific cans of creamed soup. This sounds like the perfect winter comfort food!
