Sometimes I do not know what to cook for my kids and boiling porridge seems to be the easiest.. just dump everything inside the pot and let it cook in slow fire.....
Easier said than done... when it comes to groundnuts porridge, the nuts must be soft then only the porridge is nice, right? My three fellas love them soft and chewable....
first I soaked them with hot water...
then I boiled them in slow fire till soft..
took a long time lah!
any other way to quicken up the process?
Yea..very appetizing but now i seldom cook the porridge using gas. In fact microwave else my pot will end up with a big black hole..ahhahaReplyDelete
ling, i havent cooked porridge using microwave.. rice cooker yes.. .ReplyDelete
I never eat groundnut porridge before, mybe i can try this? quite simple! :D n most important its yummy! heheReplyDelete
I only started to love eating groundnut porridge this year. It was by accident at a food fair and didn't realise that it tasted so good with scallops, oysters, nuts and century egg inside. MMmmnn! So heavenly.ReplyDelete
Dad and Mum love to eat porridge on Sundays. We add something extraordinary into the porridge - Grilled Pork Knuckle (Siew Chee Keok / Siew Chee Sao) and the outcome is... very flavourful porridge because the five-spice powder used to marinate the pork knuckle has infused into the porridge. While waiting for the porridge to cook, I will keep stirring for nor less than half an hour so as to produce a creamy, smooth texture and more concentrated porridge.ReplyDelete
caroline: oh u never taken this before? over here in ipoh.. common..ReplyDelete
twilight: serious? when we were kids, we ate quite frequently.. we means my siblings and i..hahaha..
mingna: wah..siew chu kwat.. my favorite too.. my mum can cook it very nice.. yes, with groundnuts and tam choy.. best!

Someone told me that my blog has been hijacked. I am afraid there is nothing much I could do except for changing the title. Will let you know the outcome soon.

i love porridge, but i don't like groundnuts. LOL!ReplyDelete
I will put minced meat, salted egg, century egg. Simple and yummy!!
another cheating way. can use canned peanuts. very soft. jialat, i am such a bad example of a house'fly'. kekekeReplyDelete
i love porridge too. try adding some kei chee n tung kwai..smells good.ReplyDelete
mingna: why like that one? so worrying .. how to hijack.. i wonder.. hackers? they do like random?ReplyDelete
merryn: yeah.. rice cooker also got .. but i want the nuts to be soft.. so have to use gas .. longer time!
tuti: wah..one day?? yeah, better used canned nuts..hahaha.. good idea.. me also lazy bump..
annie: now u remind me.. put in some dried oysters too.. wah.. got so much ingredients already..
wenn: tong kwai and kei chee in porridge?? serious or not?ReplyDelete
Sounds intersting... I don't think I have ever had porridge?!ReplyDelete
It looks great but I think adding century egg will take it a notch higher.ReplyDelete
yumzz,,, reading yr post n Annie's bbq.. I'm hungry.
Mmmm....I can smell it from here! Why do you have to add he corn flour to the minced meat?ReplyDelete
never had one before..but this one is worth to try! =)ReplyDelete
It didn't look good in the first picture, but what a tasty trnsformation you made. The porridge here is nothing like this. what we call porridge is something like oatmeal. I have never heard of dried scallops!ReplyDelete
Looks nice! Wanna try that some time. Haha you caught me at the salted egg :D I love salted egg with porridgeReplyDelete
Ohh... I dun like to cook rice using rice cooker... prefer to use gas... more wangi. :DReplyDelete
I never cook porridge this way, though... I usually use shredded chicken+ diced potatoes+dried shrimps instead...
Never had groundnuts with porridge...unless at hotel breakfast, and I curi from the nasi lemak condiments - kacang and ikan bilis and hard boiled egg. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
wow...Chef Claire cooking porridge ! looks delish ....why din bring some over for me and Daddy...save me some cooking :pReplyDelete
togetherwesave: porridge is soft rice.. put more water and cook it with slow fire..ReplyDelete
elaine: yes lor.. century egg is nice too..but didnt have inside the fridge.. :)
mamapumpkin: cornflour to make the minced meat smoother..not so kasar..
angelbear: never tried? common in Ipoh and some other states as well..
ginny: dried scallops from China and quite expensive over here..
daniel: yeah, my kids love them too! but dont eat too much... no good.. hahaha..
cleff: gosh, i never cook chicken with dried prawns before.. how did that taste?
elin: dont make me embarrassed! hahaha..
Hey, just stumbled over to your blog, great stuff! :-) I love the look of the porridge, makes me feel like a big hearty bowl for breakfast right now!ReplyDelete
How it taste? SEdapp... lol...dump diced potatoes and dried shrimps inside... den make ayam goreng kunyit, after that, shred the ayam goreng kunyit and serve on top. LOL. My anak likes this, cuz the porridge will be abit salty and not bland. LOL... can serve with salted eggs or marmite oso... ohh... *DROOL*ReplyDelete

I really need this here...so comforting and delicious and will keep me warm and happy in this cold weather. I have never tried peanuts in porridge. Need to try.ReplyDelete
hi claire - for me, instead of putting groundnut, I put in the other type of nuts loh (the skin is red colour eh before we kopek out the nuts), that one easy to turn soft cos I'm cooking porridge everyday for Lindy and myself (poor me, my lunch is porridge lah everyday after she can eat solid food). Besides, i ada masuk brocoli, sometimes i change to pumpkin; bayam; potato and macam2 lah i change-change. I like to add in baby corn (this one is for myself and lindy jz take the taste only lah cos baby corn won't turn soft, dia tak boleh makan - I like to eat the baby corn, sedap. maybe u can try try and see next round.ReplyDelete
marymoh: yes.. but then eating porridge can make us hungry fast.. :)ReplyDelete
amy: wow.. u sound very expert already.. the ingredients mentioned are so healthy for us..yes, good.. for us and small kids too!
Looks yummy...try to add century egg,it is my favo porridge.ReplyDelete
