Number of serving: 4
130 g Jasmine rice/white long-grain rice

Approx. 2 liters water

1 tablespoon cooking oil

1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine (Shao Tsing/Hua Tiaow wine)

While the rice is soaking, prepare:

Approx. 300g store-bought roasted duck, cut into small pieces

4 pieces dried scallops, wash and soak for 10 minutes, then break into strands

4 pieces dried oysters, wash and soak for 10 minutes, then chop into small bits

3 pieces dried shitake mushrooms, wash and soak for 30 minutes or till soften, trim off stems and cut into strips

2 pieces dried black wood's ear/cloud's ear, wash and soak for 30 minutes or till soften, trim off 'heads' and cut into thin strips

30g groundnuts, remove skin and split in 2 (cooks faster)

130g minced pork or chicken

For garnish:

Chopped cilantro

Chopped spring onion

Crispy fried shallots (thinly slice 10-12 shallots and fry in hot oil in a wok/pan over medium low heat till golden brown. the amount of oil should be enough to cover the shallots)

Chopped/sliced fresh chilies


  • Wash rice twice - each time with clean tap water. Discard the water. Place rice in a pressure cooker, pot or rice cooker. Add the water, cooking oil and cooking wine. Leave to soak for 30-40 minutes .
  • After the rice has been soaked for the required time, add in all the ingredients above into the pot. Cook until the congee is thick but not dry, and smooth.
  • If the water evaporates and the congee becomes too thick while cooking, some hot water can be added in. Do not add too much water at a time as this will dilute its flavor.
  • For faster cooking time, use a pressure cooker. Using a pot over a stove or an electronic rice cooker is fine too. If using a pot, clay pot is the best. With automatic rice cooker, the heat will turn off by itself after a certain point when the congee has been cooking for long and as it gets thicker. Using the rice cooker, time was approx. 1 hour to 1.15 hour.
