Soulful Glutinous Chicken - Loh Mai Kai



Soulful Glutinous Chicken A.K.A Loh Mai Kai



My first attempt to make Loh Mai Kai and it turned out quite well too.

Usually the Loh Mai Kai will have these main ingredient which is the " Lup Cheong" - the chinese sausage and "Char Siew "- bbq pork, but as for my Loh Mai Kai i do without it because i don't like pork.
If you are not like me don't eat pork, then by all means add the Lup Cheong and the BBQ pork into in it will definitely enhance the flavor of the glutinous rice.

Ingredients:

Ingredient A:
Soy Sauce
Caramelized dark soy sauce
Shiu Hing wine / Fa Diu wine (chinese rice wine)
Sesame oil
White pepper
Sugar
Fish sauce
Five spices powder
Ginger juice
Chicken pieces


Ingredient B:
A clove of finely chopped garlic
Water
Oil
Corn flour
Glutinous rice (soak in water for overnight in order to shorten the steaming process)
Chinese mushroom (soaked in hot water and cut into half)
Boiled eggs (cut into quarter)
Optional ingredients: BBQ pork, Lup Cheong


Method:

1. Marinate the chicken pieces with Ingredients A for at least 2hrs (overnight if you prefer).
2. Drain the water out from the pre-soaked glutinous rice and steam for 30mins.
3. Add corn flour into the chicken and toss well.
4. Heat up oil in a pan, add in the chopped garlic and follow by the marinated chicken pieces and the mushroom. Cook till 90% cooked and set aside.
5. Spoon the chicken, mushroom, egg and the optional ingredients onto the small disposable aluminium tart mould, spoon in the glutinous rice and press until it is compact and firm and cover with the aluminium foil.

Soulful Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice




Soulful Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice



My very first time making Glutinous rice and it turned out really good. This was supposed to be the Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice where you will wrap with Lotus leaf and steam it which gives you the aroma of the Lotus leaf, i steamed it on a glass bowl instead.

As i don't like pork i substituted the minced meat with beef.

Ingredients:

Ingredient A (for marinate):
Soy Sauce
Caramelized dark soy sauce
Shiu Hing wine / Fa Diu wine (chinese rice wine)
Sesame oil
White pepper
Sugar
Fish sauce
Five spices powder
Ginger juice
minced meat


Ingredient B:
Dry shrimps (chopped coarsely)
A clove of finely chopped garlic
Water
Oil
Corn flour
Glutinous rice (soak in water for overnight in order to shorten the steaming process)
Chinese mushroom (cut into small cube size)


Optional ingredients: (These will enhance the flavour but too bad i don't like pork that is why i skipped these two ingredients) If you eat pork by all means add them in.
Lup Cheong (Chinese sausage)



Method:

1. Marinate the minced meat with Ingredients A for at least 2hrs (overnight if you prefer).
2. Drain the water out from the pre-soaked glutinous rice and steam for 30mins.
3. Heat up oil in a pan, add in the chopped dry shrimp and fry under medium heat till golden brown , remove from heat and set aside for later use.
4. Heat up oil in a pan again, add in chopped garlic and spoon in a few spoons of the marinate juice, add in the steamed glutinous rice and mix well under low heat and later add in the fried dry shrimps. Once the glutinous rice is well mixed, put it aside.
5. Now is to prepare the marinated minced meat, add some corn flour into the meat and mix well before adding into the hot pan.
6. Heat up oil in a pan, add in chopped garlic, minced meat and mushrooms, under high heat stir and slowly reduce heat until the meat is just cooked and the sauce thickened. (If you prefer your glutinous rice a little bit moist add in more water, so that the juice can be use to pour on top of the rice while steaming)
7. If you have Lotus leaf, spoon the glutinous rice over the leaf, and add the minced meat and some sauce over the rice and top with your optional ingredients. Wrap up and place on the steamer to steam for about 20mins. If without Lotus leaf just steam it on a bowl and remember to cover with and aluminium foil, otherwise the minced meat will look a little dry (like what happened to the first picture.
