Porridge Etc

Yes i do take many pictures of meals i prepare.Pardon my frequent posts for today..i am trying to shift all my food entries from my regular journal to this:)

Chicken porridge is one of the first few dishes my mother taught me to make(Strangely, the aroma of chicken porridge does remind me a lot of my mother:) but i won't go into that today)Anyway, it is both mine and my husband's comfort food. I normally serve my chicken porridge with some kind of omelette,stir fry veggies or steamed fish.The resultant meal is an uncomplicated yet delicious one.

Chicken porridge made with equal parts of water and chicken broth(appearance can be enhance by adding some chopped cilantro and fried shallots)

Mixed veggie omelette(came up with this myself heh;))

Spicy tangy steamed tilapia fish made with hot bean paste(was fiddling with a couple of spices in the fridge and came up with this)

Mom's Style Chicken porridge(referring to my mom heh)

3 cups raw rice washed thrice over running water
2 cans chicken broth(abt 4 cups)
Equal parts water
2 medium size chicken breast(diced)
black pepper
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce

1)Marinate chicken with light soy sauce,sesame oil and some black pepper in a bowl.

2)Add washed rice,chicken broth and water in a stock pot and cook over medium heat.When rice is half done, add marinated chicken.

3)Complete cooking then add salt and black pepper to taste.I always add salt and/or pepper as my last step to "sweeten" and flavour the dish(something i learnt from watching too much foodnetwork).
