What to eat with rice?

Recommended Posts

I take it you've never been north-east Many, many potato dishes in good 'ole 东北 cooking.

True, too cold for me there :mrgreen::mrgreen: But it's good to know, if I ever happen to change my mind about 东北. Thanks.

you can also put rice and many ingredients into a rice cooker together, so you don't have to spend extra time to make a dish.

Google a word "煲仔飯" and put what they use into your cooker.

The taste will be very different than using a mud-made bowl, but it's good anyway.

If possible get some 叉燒 with your rice. Yummy.

Skylee's suggestions of 臘腸 & 鹹蛋 with rice are good too.

The Japanese have those dry stuff that you can sprinkle over rice. They call it Furikake and I am sure you find it easily in BJ in any shop with a Japanese corner.

But China is the worlds largest consumer of potatoes (by far), matching the country's production output.

Apparently this is set to continue. I just heard from a potato machinery maker that last year, spurred on by the financial gains of growing potatoes, many farmers had increased yields which then meant the price has come down. Also the Chinese government announced yesterday it was increasing subsidies for potato production which reflects a continuing need (with a market driven economy this is probably estimated more accurately nowadays). But this of course would only be of interest if you work in the sector... Incidentally, I have just set my early-middle potatoes in anticipation of world war III :lol: Home grown are best!

potatoes .................... Apparently this is set to continue.

I believe rice is not a good crop for China anyway due to the high water demand of that plant and the general water shortage in many parts of China.

China is huge but it is basically a matter of where you grow it and there are enough good places for rice in China.

To add to the potato debate, a friend of mine I met in Germany was from the north of China, and they have several typical potato dishes (I remember eating one where the potato is cut into long noodle-like strings, tastes a bit sour/spicy).

Anyway, once she went to a Chinese restaurant in Munich and asked the waiter if they had this particular potato dish from the north, and proceeded to explain how it is made, and all that.

The waiter (apparently, not Chinese) looked at her condescendingly and said "You know, this is a Chinese restaurant"?

She was quite upset :mrgreen:

Last night, with some friends, I ate in our local Muslim Chinese restaurant here in South China.

Main dish was 大盘鸡 dà pán jī - chicken and potatoes - a Xinjiang favourite.

And as we all know, Xinjiang is, was and always will be an inseparable part of China.

Aaah, yes, 酸辣土豆丝:mrgreen:. They have it here in Wuhan as well, I don't think it's a typical northern dish.

Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Fish Recipe, you will crave for it when you got the recipe right

note: this is a cantonese dish, so it will or might not be well received in the northern China

I believe you can also use your rice cooker as a steamer. You can cook shaomai 烧卖, which is very good with rice.

You can do all sorts in a rice cooker, including steaming - that is fairly standard - most rice cookers come with a steamer tray. It can also double as a slow cooker.

I've made jam in mine!
