Pete Simple Yam Rice Recipe

Hi Everyone. Happy New Year! This is my first post for year 2010. The year 2009 end holiday’s season was both hectic and also meaningful for me. I had tons of visitors visiting my home for the last few weeks which left me with very little time to update my blog. I would like to start off 2010 with this simple yam rice recipe which I cooked for my family a few weeks ago. This is the first time I try to cook yam rice. It turns out quite good and my kids love it!

Yam, 1 small, diced
Shallots, 5 pcs, cut into slices and fried until golden brown
Dried Prawns, 2 table spoons,
Soya Sauce, 1 table spoon
Black soya sauce, ½ teaspoon
Salt to taste
Spring Onions, 3 stalks, cut into small pieces for garnishing
Rice, 2 small cups
Char Siew (optional), cut into small pieces
Oyster Sauce, 1 table spoon (optional)

Use a little of the leftover oil from the fried shallots to sautéed the dried prawns and yam until fragrant. Add in the washed rice, salt to taste, oyster sauce, dark soya sauce and light soya sauce. Fry until the mixture has nice aroma. Put the fried rice into a rice cooker and add water. Set it to rice cooking mode. Garnish the yam rice with spring onions and fried shallots. I boiled some Shanghai vegetable soup to go with the yam rice. The sour and slightly spicy Shanghai vegetable soup complements the rich yam rice taste.
