Method for Thai Congee, Rice Porridge, Seafood
Boil broken rice with water, salt, and oil on medium heat. Keep stirring constantly until the rice is very soft and breaks apart (30-45 minutes).
Prepare the traditional stock using bullion cubes or pork bones.
Scoop about 1 1/2 cups cooked rice into another medium sized soup pot with 1 cup broth. Bring it to a boil, stirring, and season with a bit of soy sauce. Adjust the flavor as you prefer.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Top with cooked seafood, mushroom, onion and cilantro. Sprinkle with Thai pepper powder. Add a touch of dried ground chile at the end for added flavor. Serve hot and enjoy! We offer an instant joke porridge by Kaset.
