Accessories you need



Traditional Filipino dish, similar to Chinese congee, commonly served for breakfast. Good as a winter warmer or a chicken soup substantial substitute for those feeling under the weather.

For a soupier version, only use long grain white rice and increase liquid to below 2 litre mark of mixing bowl. For a less soupy version, use all glutinous rice and extend cooking time by 4-6 minutes.
