Make Your Own Delicious Glutinous Rice With Sea Salt!

Love eating that Glutinous Rice from your neighbourhood stall? Why not try making your very own with all your favourite ingredients & what’s more? Discover the negative impact of using salt vs sea salt. glutinuous rice with sea-saltA growing number of people are getting more health-conscious & many are turning to sea salt in their cooking for better quality & taste. Why use a fake chemically-produced salt substitute when you can use a natural environmentally-produced less sodium sea salt?

Sea salt blood pressure - It’s commonly known that eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure. The regular table salt that people use in their cooking does not dissolve in the body & over time, begins to block arteries etc, causing serious harm to our bodies. The sea salt will flow through your body & do more good than harm. So try to use sea salt for all your food preparation to enrich the flavour of your food while adding vital nutrients to your diet.

The other key ingredient here is Chinese Dried Shrimps. I love the unique fragrant flavour, which is very different from fresh shrimps & I like using them in my dishes. The shrimp need to be reconstituted in warm water before being used. In turn, this water is sometimes added to the dish for flavour.

For this home-made Glutinous Rice, I’ve used 2 different types of dried shrimps. Unfortunately, I don’t have the names for the classes of shrimps. dried shrimps recipe, chinese The slightly bigger ones in the picture are for mixing into the rice & the tiny, weenie ones for topping, replacing the usual shallots.

300g Glutinous rice
50g Dried shrimps (Hebe)
20g Dried shrimps (tiny ones)
1 Chinese sausage
15 pieces of big Chinese mushrooms
¼ cup of peanuts
2 stalks of spring onion
1 chilli
450ml water
1 tbsp black sauce
2 tbsp light soya sauce
½ tsp Sea salt
1 tbsp cooking oil

  1. Soak rice in water for an hour. Soak Hebe & mushroom in warm water till soft. Remove stalk from mushroom & dice into cubes.
