Mom's recipe !
I found a leftover mustard green lying in my fridge,....I told myself besides making tasty kiam chai boey what can I do with it !
So call back Penang and ask....this is what I came out with....
I don't know whether call to it...fried rice or lotus rice, coz the cooking method is similar to preparing the lotus rice...but without the lotus leaves.....so I cannot branded it as lotus rice, right!....so, fried rice !
My mom has been cooking this for at least few decades !!!!...Boring ! but then again now staying alone...kind of missing this dish. Oooh ! actually it's because of the mustard green has been lying around and occupying the fridge....so it's has to go ! Cook without choice !
Basic Ingredients; Rice, Pork Belly, Garlic, Shallots, Mustard Green, Shitake Mushroom, Ju Hu See (Shredded Cuttlefish) and Dried Shrimp.
Heat up the oil, saute the garlic and shallot till slightly brown. Then add in the pork belly, dried shrimp, shitake mushroom and ju hu see, stir fry for few minutes. Add in the uncooked rice, light soy, dark soy, salt and pepper to taste and stir to mix all the ingredients together.
Once all the ingredients are well mixed, transfer all the stuffs into the rice cooker and add in the mustard green.
Add water like how you used to cook rice but slightly lesser.
Done ! Half fried rice....half lotus rice ! Mom's recipe !
Trust me it's tasty. You get the sweetness from the pork, dried shrimp and ju hu see and yet you get a bit of the sour taste from the mustard green.
