How to cook

Prepare the meatballs

  • Combine the minced pork, corn flour, fish sauce, sesame oil, white pepper and sugar until it becomes sticky.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes, then shape it into thumb-sized meatballs.

Start cooking

  • Combine the chicken stock, rice, ginger, spring onion, garlic and chicken powder in a rice-cooker.
  • Leave the lid slightly ajar to let some steam escape to prevent overflowing.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes and stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • At this point, you can use a hand whisk or fork to whisk the rice if you prefer a softer consistency.
  • Once the porridge is cooked, stir ½ cup of water or stock and mix well.
  • Drop the meatballs one by one into the rice-cooker and cook according to instructions.
  • Cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat to prevent burning.
  • Stir the seasoning into the porridge and adjust to taste.
  • Serve warm; top with a soft-boiled egg and garnish (optional).
