Eight Treasure Porridge

Ingredients: sticky rice, rice, crushed corn, red kidney bean, read bean, black rice, white kidney bean, hushed buckwheat, peanut, mung bean, red jujube.

The other day, I used Eight Treasure Porridge to cook Eight Treasure Rice instead. This time, I use it to cook porridge. Again, it is fairly simple. Wash and rinse and soak for 5 hours and cook for 30 minutes. It was suggested to add sugar and but I used salt instead and it is equally tasty.

Preparation: 5 mins, plus 3-5 hrs standing time, Cooking time: 30 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 125g eight treasure rice, washed and drained
° 1.5 litre water
° salt to taste

1. Put the rice and water in a claypot or pot. Let it stands for 3-5 hour.
2. Bring the porridge to a boil and simmer for 20 - 30 minutes. Stirring occasionally or every 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
3. Ladle the congee into individual serving bowls and serve hot.

Looks Yummy, I tried to find at Cold storage & other NTUC outlet but cld only find "Wu Gu Mi" (Five Grain Rice) at Rice section. Did you find it at Dry Stock section or Rice section?

Hi Sunny

I have not try Cold Storage. I found it at the dried stock section at NTUC - Bishan J8, $2.96 per pack (454g). The last time, I went again, it was out of stock.

Usually Hypermart have more stuff, not sure have stock for this item.

I might want to suggest that NTUC near my place to carry such stock :p

Would you know if this can be soaked overnight? As I don't get up early enough to soak it in the morning?

Hi Smugcat,

Err.... It should not be a problem! Give it a try :) I soaked red bean overnite too and cooked in the morning. So, i guess, it should work.


Cheers :)
