Delicious Taro Mixed Rice

This is one of the many popular dishes served by the people from southern part of Malaysia. Its another way how Asian cooked and served the rice with. In older days, many from the poor enjoy cooking rice with all kinds of vegetables. And 'da cai' (from mustard green family), pumpkin & sweet potatoes which are mostly used. But today, this simple dish has been recreated into something expensive & exotic.And here's what I want to share with you today. Hope you will like it too. Enjoy !

Ingredients :
2-1/3 cups  water
1-1/2 cup  white rice
1/2 cup   glutinous rice
300gm  taro, cubed & then fried till cooked
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 minutes.
(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 & well cooperated over low heat.
(4) then transfer everything into rice cooker included the fried taro and water, let it cook till done.
(5) once its ready, serve rice with salted fish.

I really enjoyed using mixed rice in this type of cooking. It gives such a fantastic texture to the rice itself and it definitely much flavourful with the additional of dried oysters. So, are you feeling hungry now ???
