Hello, I’m back to cooking today. Ken bought me cough syrup which knocked me out after taking it and I’m better now! So, I planned to prepare two Cambodian dishes – Caramelised chicken wings with ginger & Rice porridge.
First was the Caramelised chicken wings with ginger. The steps were pretty easy except for the first which I had to make a caramel sauce. I tried but failed. I tried heating the sugar in the non-stick pan. After waiting for a good 10 minutes, I think it was not going anywhere and pour the mixture into my wok and you know what? The mixutre turned into crystals! Oh my! It’s such a joke! In the end, I decided to stir-fry the chicken wings using soy sauce and shao xing cooking wine with ginger. Taste good still but I will try to make the caramel sauce again!
Next for dinner was the rice porridge. In Cambodia, a steaming bowl of thick rice porridge or Bobor is a nourishing and satisfying breakfast. But for me, since it has been raining almost the whole afternoon and is still raining now, I made it for dinner.
This is really a simple and healthy dish. However, I feel that it pales in comparison to the Teochew porridge which has more flavour. Still, it is a nice porridge to have!
