Cooking tools
  • Wok
  • Rice Cooker
  • Spatula
  1. Heat up oil in a wok. Gently drop in shallots and reduce heat to medium. Stir constantly as they color quickly. Fry shallots till they are just about to turn golden brown. Remove shallots immediately as they will continue to darken and transfer to a piece of kitchen towel.
  2. Heat remaining oil in the wok. If you find that the oil has reduced too much, add a tablespoon of oil. Add dried shrimp and stir-fry for about 30 seconds. Add garlic and continue to stir-fry till fragrant. About 1 minute.
  3. Add minced pork. Use medium-low heat. Stir-fry briskly with a spatula so that the minced pork do not clump. The meat does not have to be thoroughly cooked.
  4. Add long bean, carrot, mushrooms and seasonings. Stir-fry and mix everything well. Cover and let cook for about 30 seconds. Turn off heat.
  5. Put rice in rice cooker and wash a few times till water is clear. Add water. It should be slightly lesser than what is usually required for that amount of rice. Pour the stir-fried ingredients into the rice cooker and mix well with the uncooked rice. Turn on the rice cooker.
  6. When the rice is ready and the water almost dried up, add a quarter of the fried shallots and mix gently. Taste the rice and adjust seasonings if necessary. Close the cover and let it rest for about 10 minutes
  7. Garnish with remaining fried shallots and sprinkle with some white pepper powder before serving.
Cooking Notes
