Loh-Mai-Gai (Steamed Glutinous Rice Chicken)



I have this recipe (Precious Pea BloG) with me " AGES " ago ! I'm just too lazy to try out and yet so tempted on it !!!! I did few research... and apparently This one is more "open-secret" than the others... and also this one is more Malaysian flavour.

Everytime When I found some great recipes online, I will print it out and file it away=p The thing I hate most is, if I dont make it oneday, it will forever keep running in my memory! which make me so tired & irritating la~ my mind keep on thinking about it only! hate it!

So In-order-to-get-rid-of-this-Loh-Mai-Gai in my mind.......... I decided to MAKE IT TODAY! *LOlz*

I amended the recipe a bit ... I subsitute Chinese Sausage with Chinese Dried meat~ haha, same flavour what... =p~

Ingredients ( For 4 persons)
1 Bowl Glutinous rice + 1/4 bowl of plain rice
Few Chinese Mushrooms ( Soaked)
1 Piece Dried meat ( Cut into half, 1/2 slice into stick..1/2 cut into dices )
1 Piece of chicken maryland ( Deboned)

Marinate the Chicken for 1/2 hour
( t = teaspoon ; T = Tablespoon)
1/2 t cooking wine
1 t sesame oil
1 T ginger juice ( I used Minced ginger)
1/4 t oyster sauce
1/4 t light soya
1/2 t sugar
sprinkle of pepper.
* My marinating are quite in small portion due to small amount of Chicken pieces)

Special Sauce for cooked Glutinous Rice
1 T cooking oil ( Use lard oil if u have)
1 t oyster sauce
1 t sugar
1 t dark soya
1 t light soya
1 T ginger juice ( I used minced ginger)
sprinkle of pepper

1. Soaked the Glutinous rice for overnight.

2. Drain the rice & steam for 30 minutes.

3. When the rice is steamed, mix the sauce & diced dried meat into it. Stir well.

Yeah.. I added diced dried meat into the rice, so enhance the flavour.

4. Put mushroom on the most bottom ( so all the flavour will go into it) , but here, i brush the mushroom with a bit of the glutinous special sauce. Then follow by all the meat. Lastly put the rice on top.

5. Steamed at 40 minutes! Wow.............. what else.... eat la now ! =p

I told Kylie, this pic looks like Steamed Abalone Glutinous Rice. *HAHAHA*

I added-in white rice , bcuz ( I was having this silly idea that if I eat too much of glutinous rice, my stomach gets discomfort..is like I m eating a Brick in , so I mix a bit of white. Anyways, I dont feel the difference also! haha !
