600 gm glutinous rice, washed and soaked overnight.
8 cloves garlic, chopped.
1 cup, dried shrimps, soaked overnight and drained.
20 pieces of dried chinese mushrooms, soaked overnight and then sliced.
(Keep the mushroom water for steaming the rice later.)
For garnishing ....
1 cup of fried onions
1 cup of pan-fried peanuts
green spring onions, chopped
For seasoning the rice ...
2 tbsp light soya sauce
1/2 tbsp dark soya sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sesame oil
Pepper to taste
Heat up 3 tbsp of oil and stir fry dried shrimps and chopped garlic till fragrant.
Add in the sliced mushrooms and the drained glutinous rice and stir till well blended.
Add in the rice seasoning and mix well.
Pour all ingredients from the frying pan into the cooking pot and add the mushroom water till it covers the top of the rice.
Turn on the rice cooker as per normal.
After the rice cooker beeps, check for rice doneness by fluffing up the rice( rice should be softened).
You may need to start the rice cooker again if rice is not ready.
Once rice has softened you may scoop rice onto plate and garnish with fried onions, peanuts, chopped green onions and sliced red chillis too.
