One of the ultimate comfort foods. I just got a new rice cooker with a sweet rice function and this my first test. I can’t believe how easy it was to make. Definitely will be making this a lot.
2 cups glutinous rice, rinsed and soaked
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, soaked and sliced
1 Tbsp oil
1 cup veggie meat or chicken
3/4 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tbsp minced ginger (optional)
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp light soya sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp mirin
1 tsp sugar or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Water (or chicken stock), according to your rice cooker measurements
- Rinse glutinous rice and dried mushrooms and soak at lest 4-5 hours, preferably overnight.
- Chop mushrooms and meat.
- Heat the oil and fry garlic until fragrant. Add chopped mushrooms, meat, ginger (if using) and seasoning ingredients. Add glutinous rice and mix well.
- Add all the ingredients into the rice cooker. Pour in enough water according to your rice cooker measurements and stir until the seasoning is evenly mixed.
- Turn on the rice cooker on the sweet rice setting.
