Nibong Tebal and Serdang (not KL Serdang) in Northern Malaysia is famous for its’ fried porridge. They don’t actually fry the rice or porridge but they pre fried the ingredients before adding them to the porridge. I tried to come up with a vegetarian version using fu chuk as substitute for meat.
It turns out quite nice!
Rice, ½ bowl, rinse and cook into porridge
Garlic, 5 cloves, chopped finely
Fu chuk(fried beancurd sheets), 3 pcs, cut into strips
Marmite, 1 teaspoon
Dark Soya Sauce, ½ teaspoon
Light Soya Sauce, 2 table spoon
Sesame oil, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Cilantro and spring onions for garnishing
Sautéed garlic in hot vegetable oil until fragrant. Add in the fu chuck, marmite, dark soya sauce, light soya sauce, sesame oil and salt to taste. Fry for a short while until a nice aroma permeates the air. Pour all the ingredients into the cooked porridge. Garnish with cilantro or Chinese parsley and spring onions before serving.
