Tis’ the season to be healthy, and jolly. But here I am, high with the fever, coughing my lungs out, and a throat too sore. With my current health condition, eating is becoming more of a struggle. My appetite is just not the same and I’ve been very picky of what food I want to eat.
Ever since I was a little girl, a delicious, home-made, warm rice porridge is my favorite thing to eat while sick. Since it is the “flu-season”, here’s an easy rice porridge recipe for you all!
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-2 cups rice
-5 cloves minced garlic
-1 ginger full sized
-1 & 1/2 litres of water
-1.2 kg chicken legs
-2 tablespoons fish sauce
-2 tablespoons salt
-4 hardboiled eggs
1.) Sautée onions, garlic and ginger with olive oil
2.) Add chicken and cook until they turn brown. Cook for 15 minutes.
3.) Add 1 litre of water. Bring to a boil.
4.) Add rice as soon as the water starts boiling.
5.) Add the remaining 1/2 litre of water. Season with fish sauce and salt. Let it boil for 10 minutes, reduce heat to medium and continue cooking for 3o minutes.
6.) Make hardboiled eggs (optional). Chop green onions and add to the rice porridge. Chop a little bit more for garnish.
I hope you all stay warm and cozy this winter season! May the flu stay away from you!
