steamed glutinous rice with chicken

recipe: steamed sticky glutinous rice with chicken wrapped in lotus leaf (糯米鸡)
what you'll need:

  • 2 sticks of chinese sausage
  • chinese mushrooms
  • chicken fillets
  • chicken powder and salt 
  • glutinous rice
  • soy sauce
  • a little oil
  • water - cold and hot
  • lotus leaves
  • string
  • what to do:
    1. Soak glutinous rice in water for at least 4 hours. (I think it's better if you leave it over night).
    2. Place the rice in large bowl after draining the soaked rice. Then pour boiling water into the rice and stir before draining the water again.
    3. Season the rice with soy sauce, salt, some chicken powder and a little oil. 
    4. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces and marinate with salt, soy sauce and sugar - you should let the flavours soak in so do this 2 - 3 hours before you actually plan to steam it. 
    5. Thinly slice the 2 sticks of Chinese sausage. (About 2 or 3mm thick)
    6. Soak the lotus leaves in hot water until soft and then wash it with cold water.
    7. Prepare some string.
    8. Place a layer of rice in the centre of the lotus leaf. Then add a few slices of sausage and chicken before adding another layer of rice over it. (Don't make it too thick).
    9. Wrap it up and secure with the string. Repeat this with left over ingredients.
    10. Steam for about an hour or until fully cooked.

    Hi there! My name is Anna. I'm nineteen, in my second year of uni (UNSW) and born in Sydney. This blog is about my gastronomic adventures in Australia and abroad. It all started when I got new camera (Samsung Ex1) and since then, I've been mainly taking photos of food. So, I decided to document everything on this blog.

    I'm still learning to take nice pictures - my camera isn't exactly the greatest but it works.

    Oh, and I think we should get this out of the way (just in case you decide to unfriend me) I'm not a fan of chocolate or coffee. (Yes you saw right).

    Anyway, enough about me - thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
