Steamed Savoury Glutinous Rice @ 'Loh Mai Gai'

This is one of the must have dim sum dish, other than prawns dumpling @ Har Gao when having breakfast at dim sum restaurant. But I seldom go to our local dim sum place to have breakfast because mostly of their dim sum is made of pork. My kids not really fond of it. So, still making it at home is the best. I used mostly chicken meat even the 'Lap Cheong' @ Chinese Sausage also made of chicken meat (a product from Thailand).

Ingredients :
*2 sticks Chinese sausage, sliced
*some sliced mushroom (I used fresh ones)
1 whole chicken breast fillet, sliced
2 cups glutinous rice, clean & soaked for 3 hours

Seasoning for chicken :
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tspn dark soy sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine/shaoxing wine
1 tbsp ginger juice
1 tspn sugar
1/2 tspn white pepper
2 tbsp sesame oil
(combine all ingredients and mix well with the sliced chicken & mushroom, then set aside)

Seasoning for glutinous rice :
3/4 cup water
1/2 tspn Chinese five spice
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tspn dark soy sauce
2 tpsn light soy sauce
1/2 tpsn white pepper
3 tbsp fried garlic oil
1 tspn sesame oil
(combine all and stir in to cooked glutinous rice and mix to combine)

(1) prepared 8 rice bowls and place in marinated chicken, mushroom & sliced sausage.
(2) fill in each bowl with cooked glutinous rice.
(3) then steam for 30 mins over high heat, and serve hot.

Note : Steam the soaked glutinous rice for 30 mins over high heat (without any addition of water). Then stir in the seasoning mixture once the rice is cooked.

These ready made foil packaging with cover can easily found at the specialty shop. So easy & convenient! We can keep them refrigerated as soon as it's done and then go straight to the steamer or microwave on the following day.
I'm sending this to Shaz @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday event.


  1. Oh my, this is one of my absolute favorite tool Kristy! I think I can eat this everyday, lol! Thanks for the reminder, looks like I better make this again, yum yum!

  2. oh ya hor....long time i didnt make this

  3. Kristy, you made my favorite 'Loh Mai Gai'. Save some for me please :)

  4. Oh my gosh! This looks great and sounds delicious!

  5. My favourite breakfast dish! Those in the foil look like store-bought.

  6. i just had loh mai kai this afternoon at a coffeeshop. i think yours look even better than those selling outside, looks very good! kristy you too have a great week!

  7. Kristy when I first saw the picture I thought it was a big portion that you would slice off a piece. Then when I saw it on the blog I see it's in beautiful indidvidual servings. And guess what? I have all the ingredients already! I could make them today! :D Except the little tins, could I use ramekins? I think it sounds great with the chicken, oh...I don't have the Chinese sausage either, but I have other chicken sausage.

    Wishing you sunny skies,

  8. this must be one tasty dish... and looks like seafood would be great in it too

  9. wow Kristy, I love glutinous rice chicken! I wish I had some Chinese sausages in pantry...or maybe I should just skip them.

  10. Kristy, you're making me crave for some Lor Mai Gai right now...! I have Chinese sausages in the fridge, I should make this tomorrow!!

  11. I love sticky rice!! Haven't had this in a long time, and I too now have a craving!

  12. Oh I love every ingredient and combined it is so earthy and tasty. I make something similar but not with the rice - so you have me thinking... in a good way.

  13. Oh, plse send it over to my house! Tat Lor Mai Kai looks delicious!

  14. So delicious Loh Mai Gai. Thank you for the recipe.

    Best regards,

  15. I love 'loh mai kai'! Cant really find the best at my hometown, but still loving it! (Despite the calories :P)

  16. i love the chicken ones! super nice! yours look better than those selling in the store! look so yummy (:

  17. ooh it's been some time since i've eaten this and this reminds me that i need to make this soon!!!

  18. Selalunya Cm masak loh ma gai ni:)bubuh isi ayam.Makan dengan bawang goreng dan cili potong.mesti ada cili hehe

  19. 呵呵,油油亮亮地,看了好开胃:)

  20. I am completely new to this dish. I like the seasonings you've used.

  21. Oh! This is one of my fav too @ yum chai. Your loh mai gai(sticky rice) looks absurbly tasty like the one served in famous dim sum restaurants!

  22. this is my favaurite, I must order it whenever I go for dim sum! Thanks for the recipe!

  23. I for one am glad you make your own at home, Kristy. It not only looks delicious, it is making me long for just a little bitty taste right now!!!

    Would you say a novice such as myself could prepare this?

  24. Drooling at your loh mai gai, so moist and yummy with the generous amount of filling!

  25. Yum, my favourite too. I didn't know that there is a chicken version of lup cheong. Sounds great. My kids are the opposite though. They like pork but dislike chicken, so strange given that pork is "stronger" tasting! Your lo mai gai looks very good, I've bookmarked to try :)

  26. Bee : Are you kidding...everyday! Oh, not me! Once a week it's more than enough.

    Kathy : No need to cook! Since there are so many delicious one available in KL. Safe gas!

    Ann : No need to store for you. I'll make a new batch for you!

    Pam : Thanks!

    Ann : It's more convinience to bring along for outing especially during 'qing ming'!

    Lena : Some of the store bought ones are very dry and the rice don't cooked properly which I hate the most.

    Katerina : Thanks!

    Lyndz : Yes, you can use remekins or any ceramic bowls. And you can either omit the sausage or just add in together with other ingredients.

    Drick : Yes, it is! Seafood...why I have never thought of it before.
