Hokkien Porridge

This is a traditional Hokkien black porridge recipe I got from my mom. I grew up eating this porridge and it has now become my own family's favourite too. It's a simple one-dish meal and it's easy to make too!

Ingredients (serves 5):

2 cups rice
4 tbps chopped shallots
2 cups long beans (cut in an inch long)
3 pieces of white beancurd (pan fried and cut into cubes)
1/2 cup dried shrimps (optional)
1 cup dried oyster (soaked and sliced)
100gm minced pork (marinate with light soy sauce and pepper)
dark soy sauce, light soy sauce and pepper to taste


1. Wash the rice and cook white porridge in a large pot. Leave to boil.
2. Heat up about 3 tbsp cooking oil and add in shallot. Fry til golden brown.
3. Add in dried shrimps. Fry till fragrant.
4. Add in oyster and minced pork. Fry till pork is thoroughly cooked.
5. Add in long beans and beancurds. Stir in dark soy sauce according to your liking on the color and taste.
6. Transfer all the fried ingredients into the pot of porridge. Stir and let it simmer til porridge is well cooked and soft. Serve hot.
