During the weekend, I like to eat “Dim Sum” at the restaurant near my house. “Dim Sum” is a style of Chinese food prepares as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Besides “Dim Sum”, porridge is usually served. I like porridge, especially century egg and salted egg porridge. Pork or minced pork is usually add to the porridge too.
Last weekend, I went to market to get all ingredients for the porridge. I decided to cook my own version of century egg and salted egg porridge. It is actually a very simple and easy dish to prepare. All you need are century egg, salted egg and minced pork. I also add some fried dried silver fish and shallot oil as condiment. Without further ado, let’s see how to cook this yummy porridge. Happy cooking and enjoy!
