Stir Fried Glutinous Rice 生炒糯米飯

We like to have glutinous rice for breakfast.  Glutinous rice from some stalls are overly soft and sticky, whereas others are too dry.  I notice some of my friends cook glutinous rice with rice cooker. I would like to share the traditional ways of preparing this dish.  In this recipe, I will stir fried the glutinous rice instead of using rice cooker.  Chinese sausage is one of the main ingredients in this dish.  I have skipped this ingredient as my children do not like Chinese sausages.  Instead, I have added plenty homemade roasted peanuts. 


1.  1 cup glutinous rice
2.  6-8 dried black mushrooms ( soaked and diced )
3.  2 tablespoons of dried shrimps ( soaked and diced )
4.  1 egg (Beaten)
5.   Diced green onion & Ginger 1 1/2 tablespoon each
6.  3 Tbsp deep-fried shallot
7.  1 tsp dark soy sauce (colouring)

1.  1 Tbsp of Shaoxing cooking wine ( Optional )
2.  1 1/2 Tbsp of light soy sauce
3.  1/2 Tbsp of dark soy sauce
4.  1 1/2 tsp of sugar
5.  1 tsp of sesame oil
6.  Pinch of white pepper


1.  Soak glutinous rice for 2 hours.

2.  Cook egg in a pan.  Once done, cut egg into strips.

3.  Sautee mushroom and dried shrimps until fragrant.

4.  Add sauce and stir well.  Next add ginger and chopped spring onions.  Stir fry for a while and set a side.

5.   Heat up pan with about 3 Tbsp of oil.  Pour glutinous rice and 1/2 cup of water into the pan and stir.  Cover the pan with lid for about 2 minutes.  Repeat this process about 2 to 3 times until rice is cooked.

6.  Once rice is cooked, add all the ingredients prepared in Steps 4 and stir fry until it is well mixed.  Add 1 tsp of dark soy sauce and mix well. 

7.  Turn off the heat and add roasted peanuts.

8.  Sprinkle eggs, deep-fried shallots before serving.
