Kampar Lor Mai Fan (Glutinous Rice) - MFF featuring Perak

I am so glad that the term exam is finally over and now I can have some spare time to blog. Have been busy baking and cooking non stop I assure you but just didn't find time to blog about all those recipes. It looks like I need more motivation to sit in front of my lab top nowadays. :P Anyway, I did gave my word to Wendy that I will make this Lo Mai Fan earlier this month, so here it is!

Personally I love any kind of glutinous rice dishes, Puen Kueh, Lo Mai Gai and Hokkien glutinous rice and now this! This Kampar Lo Mai Fan is indeed quite delicious with its unique serving of curry sauce with it. Love! H

I have adapted the recipe from none other the Wendy. However I did omit the pork fat because it just slipped my mind to buy a piece of pork fat, hahaha! Anyway, here it is:

Ingredients for Kampar Lo Mai Fan (Serves ~6)
Red Roasted Char Siew Pork
300gm pork tenderloin
60gm sugar
30gm light soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp rose wine (Mei gui lu)

some red food coloring gel

In a small mixing bowl, add everything in except the pork and mix well. Pour the mixture into a big ziplock bag and place the pork tenderloin in as well. Seal tight and let the pork marinate in the sauce for a good 6-8 hours before use. Bake in oven for 20-23 minutes in 200C. Remember to let meat cool completely before slicing.

300gm glutinous rice
1 heaping tbsp of dried shrimp, soaked and chopped finely
3 shallots, minced
2 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp dark caramel sauce
Salt if needed
Boiling water

  • Soak the glutinous rice for at least an hour before use.
  • In the meantime, prepare the steamer to a small rolling boil.
  • In a small pot, fry the shallot till its all golden and crisp. Dish out and set aside.
  • In another cooking pan, add in some cooking oil at medium fire. Add in the garlic and chopped dried shrimp in and cook for a couple minutes till fragrant. 
  • Drain the rice and discard soaking water. Then add in the soaked glutinous rice into the cooking pan and stir to mix well.
  • Add in the seasoning to the rice and stir fry till it is uniform in colour.
  • Add in the fried shallots and stir to combine. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Now transfer the rice into a taming vessel and add water to just cover the rice. Steam at medium high fire till the rice is cooked, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Remember to let the rice cool first before scooping it, this allows the rice to firm up a little and not get all mushed up when you scoop.

1/2 cup fried peanuts
Spring onions, sliced

Red roasted char siew
  • In a small oiled bowl, scoop in some steamed glutinous rice in and press it down to level.
  • Then carefully invert the rice over a serving plate.
  • Garnish with juliened green onions, fried peanuts and top with sliced char siew.
  • Serve with curry sauce if desired.
Oh how I love the crunchy peanuts with this Lo Mai Fan, hahaha! And the curry, yes the curry sauce....didn't know it taste so good with curry!
For the curry sauce, please refer to here for more details.

I am more then happy to submit this post to this month's Malaysian Food Fest Perak Month hosted by WendyinKK of Table for 2 or more

WendyinKK said...

I remember you saying you like all sort of sticky rice, hehehe. Same here!
Glad you tried out the optional curry sauce as well. Very typical of Kampar people to douse curry with everything, hahaha
