Extraordinary Long Bean Mixed Rice

Yesterday, I received some home grown long beans from a friend ~ chemical free.....LOL. What not to happy ! My kids hate long beans. They don't touch even a bit of it no matter how I prepared them. With little hope, I decided to give them a shot cooking with rice. Yeap..... flavourful long bean mixed rice with dried oyster & salted fish. Yummmm...... I'm not sure if you guys have ever tried cooking your rice by combining glutinous rice before. I've tried it a number of times and I found that it is really really scrumptious. And here's the recipe from the kitchen of My Little Space.

Can these simple ingredients provide you scrumptious meal???? Trust your tongue and nose but not with your eyes.... >o<

Ingredients :
2-1/3 cups  water
1-1/2 cup  white rice
1/2 cup   glutinous rice
200gm   long beans, trimmed the end & cut small
50gm    dried shrimp, soaked
50gm    dried oyster, soaked
1 inch ginger, julienned
3  shallots , sliced

Seasoning :
1 TB  dark soy sauce (add more if you prefer darker)
2 TB  light soy sauce
1/3 tspn  salt
1/4 tspn  pepper
1/2 tspn  vegetables granule

For Topping : 100gm salted fish (rinsed & fried till golden brown)

Method :
(1) rinsed & drained both rice and set aside for 30 mins.
(2) preheat wok/frying pan with 1/3 cup cooking oil, saute ginger, shallot & dried shrimp till fragrant.
(3) next, stir in dried oyster, both rice and all the seasoning, cook everything till dry & nicely combined over low heat.
(4) transfer everything into rice cooker then add in water, let it cook till done.
(5) and not to forget, stir in long beans when rice just about to cook. Let to stand for 10-15 mins before serving.
(6) once its ready, serve rice with salted fish.

I will normally fried extra more salted fish and then bottled some up for storage which can be used at any time. There are quite a number of salted fish available at the market place but I still prefer using this kind of salted fish and the other one is 'mei xiang' salted fish. Oooo..... those 'mei xiang' salted fish reminds me of my home town famous clay pot chicken rice. Slurppp.... 

You'll be amazed by the texture of the mixed rice....soft & gluey. You definitely will craving for more. Hope you guys will have a great weekend. Enjoy !

Hi Kristy,
Your mixed rice looks delicious and I really like the idea of one pot with just rice cooker.
Just a question, the white rice is one and a half cup, is it ? or is it 1/2 to one cup? I would really like to try out this recipe.
Thanks in advance for clarifying.

First of all, thanks for stopping by. Now to your question, its one & a half cup of white rice.
Hope you'll love the rice mixed.
Blessings, Kristy
