Simple as it is

During the kitchen cabinet reconstruction, we either had packet food or I cooked using the induction cooker and rice cooker.

Few nights we had simple dinner like porridge. Chicken porridge with few condiments.


We had black beans fish, salted egs, prickles and braised peanuts to go with the chicken porridge.

Growing up, I never like porridge. Especially plain porridge with condiments. I were never a porridge person as a girl. But as I grow older, I started to appreciate the simplicity it represents. As simple as it is, it is one of the most outstanding (the oldest as well) of Chinese cuisine.

This healthy and warm dish will definitely warm you up on any cold day.  And one can match his porridge with anything one desires.


My favourite match for my chicken porridge is this (above). So satisfying. So comforting. Really so good to be taken during this cold spell that we are currently experiencing over here. It has been nothing but cloudy and raining every single day since last week.

My boys and hubby dont like porridge. To them it is sick people's food. They get hungry really fast after eating porridge.
