Fried Porridge Recipe

Nibong Tebal and Serdang which are located in the Northern states are famous for its’ Fried Porridge. There used to be a Nibong Tebal Fried Porridge branch in Manjalara, Kepong but it has since been closed down. The lady boss told me that she had a hard time looking for workers to help out in the restaurant, so they just closed it down. She set up a Penang Tua Pan(wat tan hor) stall with two of her workers in Kedai Kopi Yat Ka which is not far away from the original restaurant. They don’t sell fried porridge in this stall but only noodles and tuapan. Anyway, I got some leftover rice and I tried to make fried porridge with it for supper. Here is the recipe of my fried porridge.

Rice, 1 bowl
Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely
Ginger, 1”x1”x1”, cut into fine strips
Roast pork, 7 pcs
Dark Soya Sauce, 1 teaspoon
Light soya sauce, 2 table spoon
Marmite, 1 teaspoon
Oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Long beans, 3 stalks, cut into small pieces
Salt to taste S
esame seed oil, ½ teaspoon
Cilantro (daun sup) for garnishing

Put some vegetable oil in hot wok and sautéed ginger & garlic until fragrant. Add in the roast pork, dark soya sauce, light soya sauce, marmite, oyster sauce and long beans. Fry until the long beans are cooked. Put in the rice. Fry for a short while. Put the rice aside. Put 2 bowls of water in pot and bring to a boil. Add in the rice and let it simmer for a short while. Add salt to taste. Garnish with cilantro and serve!

fried porridge really sounds unique since i never associated frying with porridge. But looking at the ingredients, i can tell it's savory.

This is something new. Have never herad of fried porridge. I think the only difference from the normal porridge is stir frying the ingredients first before boiling it to porridge consistency.
