The “ang mohs’ donch know what porridge is. If you say .. you are eating porridge … they would think i was crazy.. because porridge is actually oatmeal here. You have to say “congee” but there is no “congee” to be sold in the chinese restaurant here. But if you are friends with the Chinese restaurant owner.. like i am.. with Mr Choo & his wife… you get priviledges.
So the other day, I got a call from Mr Choo asking if I want some porridge.. and i said i do .. and he just came and sent it over. It’s some kinda salted meat.. i think.. in the porridge.. with some spring onions.
Some ginger in the porridge.. which is a must .. because like my mom used to say. .porridge gives the tummy lots of wind. And old woman like me.. cannot have too much wind eh… muahhahaha!!
Some dried scallops in the porridge as well. Yummy..!!! Porridge isn’t difficult to cook. Usually i soak the rice over night.. and then put them in the slow cooker and cook it for 4hrs or so. Pork is what i use most of the time but once it starts boiling.. i put in sesame oil as well. When you are ready to eat.. just put in a dash or two.. of pepper. Oh .. donch forget to add a dash or two of salt too. Thanks to Mr Choo .. i donch have to cook a big pot of porridge .. and eat them all myself.
