Seafood Porridge (Lala, Dried Oyster and Peanut)

Sunday, June 28, 2009

When I was small, porridge was something that I dislike. I always had the impression that porridge is a 'sick people meal' which literally means I will only have them when I am not feeling well. I guess that I was so wrong with this kind of of perception. We can actually have a lot of different varieties with porridge -not just necessary to be a plain white porridge. So I decided to have a more 'fanciful' porridge. With lots of goodies places inside to make the porridge - Lala, dried oyster and peanuts.


1 1/2 cup rice
10-12 cups of water
100g raw peanuts
50g dried oyster
2 tbsp chicken stock

salt and pepper to taste
sesame oil to taste

Braised Lala in Soup
150g Lala
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 thumb sized, sliced
1 tsp chicken stock
1 tsp Shaoxing wine
1 cup water
dash of sesame oil
pepper to taste

  1. To prepare porridge: Bring water to boil. Pour in rice, oysters and peanuts and stir well. Cook under medium heat and stir continously until water boil again.
  2. Lower heat and simmer for 1 hour or till peanuts are tender. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent rice from sticking at the bottom. Add seasoning to taste.
  3. To prepare lala: Soak lala in salty water, clean and drain well.
  4. Heat up wok with 1 tbsp sesame oil. Stir fry chopped garlic and ginger.
  5. Add in Lala and seasoning. Stir well and cover for 3 minutes. Dish up and serve with porridge and salted eggs.
