I waited so long as i can never remember to soak my rice.  Anyways, this is quite an easy dish to cook and makes a super yummy dim sum dish. My secret is to cook the rice with homemade shallot oil. It’s very fun making shallot oil as i get both cripsy homemade shallots that makes a fantastic topping, and shallot oil that makes the dish so much more fragrant and yummy 🙂


  1. 5 shallots, thinly sliced
  2. 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  3. 6 shitake mushrooms, soaked till soft and sliced
  4. Dried shrimps (optional, i omitted it as Ben hates it)
  5. 1 chinese sausage (lup cheong)
  6. 2 chicken thighs, cut in thick slices, marinate with salt and pepper
  7. 1 cup glutinous rice (soaked overnight)
  8. 3/4 cup chicken stock
  9. 1 tbsp thick dark soy sauce
  10. 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  11. 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  12. Sesame oil
  13. Pinch of salt
  14. Dash of pepper
  15. Toppings: crispy shallots, coriander, spring onions, roasted peanuts, chillies


  1. In a hot wok, add some oil and fry shallots until crispy and golden. Leave the oil in the wok and dish up the shallots.
  2. Using a paper towel, blot up some oil and leaving some in the wok.
  3. Turn on heat, saute garlic until fragrant. Add in dried shrimps (if using), mushrooms and lup cheong and brown lightly.
  4. Add in chicken and brown nicely. Add in rice and fry until rice is opaque.
  5. Pour in chicken stock and fry until stock is evaporated. Pour in sauces and seasonings. Toss evenly.
  6. Transfer rice and everything onto a plate. Steam over high heat for 30 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle toppings over and ready to serve 🙂
