Bake Rice


This dish was taught by my friend, who is a good cook more than 10 over years ago.  As usual, good cook recipe are “estimation”, so over the years, I manage to porpotion it so that the taste will be consistent everytime I cook it.  Few months ago, my friend needs to fly back to Singapore and let her 2 sons stay with me for a few days.  She told me that her eldest son will pick vegetables out of his plate if he sees them.  The first night he really picks out the vegetable from his plate, so the next day, I decided to cook this dish and instead of cutting the vegetables into bite sizes, I decided to use a blender to chop the vegetable till real small pieces before I cook them.  Guess what! He not only didn’t pick the vegetables (I guess is way too small to pick), he even says he likes this dish! Mission accomplished! 😂😂
