Chinese rice in the rice cooker


  • Soak the shiitakes in hot water for 30 mins. Then drain well, discard the stalks and slice.
  • Blanch the Chinese sausages and carrots for 3-4 mins. Then drain and finely slice the sausage.
  • Wash the rice in a bowl until the water runs clear. Then drain well.
  • Spray a rice cooker with oil and place everything in it. Cover and cook.
  • When ready, fluff up the rice with a fork and set aside, covered, for about 10 mins before serving.
  • nb.  If you don’t have a rice cooker, very gently cook the rice in a pot, covered.
