Leftover Turkey Porridge
I have a leftover turkey thigh courtesy of Lily. Actually I requested it from her so that I can make some turkey porridge the next day. :P She was really generous and just asked me to take, so I did. :P Thanks Lily as now we have a day of delicious turkey porridge to enjoy. This was the first time I made a turkey porridge using leftover as I never baked a whole turkey before. This porridge turned out to be very good as it also got a thumb up from my hubby and two girls. Evy even requested for lunch box the next day.
4 cups of rice
1 leftover turkey thigh
1 can sweet corns, drained (or frozen corns)
1 bowl of broccoli
1 big carrot, sliced
5 dried scallops, soaked in hot water until soften
Crispy fried shallots
Lots of water (you will have to estimate on that)
Seasoning (to taste):
Chicken stock granules
White and Black peppers, freshly crushed
1. In a very big stock pot, add in washed rice, leftover turkey thigh, dried scallops, broccoli, frozen corns (if used) and carrot. Then add in lots of water, from my first picture you should have an idea of how much water to add (also have some hot water handy in case you needed more water half way through cooking). Let it boiled and then turn to low to simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally.
2. If it dried up, add more water and keep on stirring until the rice broken up. Add crispy fried shallots and season to taste with salt, chicken stock granules and white & black peppers. Add in can corns (if used) and keep on stirring until the porridge reaches the desire consistency that you like. Turn off heat and drizzle some sesame oil, stir well before serving.
