200 g (1.5 rice cup) of jasmine rice, wash and drained

10 pieces of dried scallops

12 slices of ginger

Spring onions


Salt and pepper to taste

Fish sauce to taste


STEP 1: Put in water, rice, scallops, ginger into a large pot. Cover the lid and bring to boil.

STEP 2: Leave the lid slightly open and reduce the heat to medium low. Cook for 1 hour until the rice turns into a smooth, congee-like texture.

STEP 5: Season porridge with fish sauce and salt. Stir to mix well.
