Fried Glutinous Rice
When cooked it becomes sticky and slightly translucent, unlike regular rice, glutinous rice has a chewy texture along with a slightly sweet taste. This multipurpose sticky rice has such an all-rounded naturally sweet flavour; it lends itself to desserts as well as savoury dishes. A quick and easy way to enjoy its unique texture and flavour, just fry it together with simple everyday ingredients!
Fried glutinous rice is a popular traditional dish among the Chinese and is often eaten for breakfast or during festive occasions. Chinese sausages add in a hint of sweetness, while mushrooms and dried shrimps give it that distinct umami taste and texture. These flavours along with the tanginess from soya sauce mixed into that sweet chewy glutinous rice – it’s just the perfect combination! Steaming the rice before frying boosts its texture and it’s what makes this dish so deliciously fun to eat.
Using glutinous rice makes the classic fried rice dish ever so fragrant and less greasy than usual.
