glutinous rice sauages

Author: Mama Bear Email  | Filed under: Uncategorized with 302 words and 1131 views

I'm looking forward to trying this recipe. I've never had these, but was talking to a friend about as she grew up with these and loved them. The ingredient combination sounds great so I'll "bite".

Ingredients:
500g glutinous rice, soaked overnight or at least 4 hours
8 chinese mushrooms, soaked till soft. Finely cubed
4 chinese sausages, soaked till soft. Finely cubed
40g dried shrimp, soaked till soft. Finely chopped

3 shallots, sliced
1½ tsp salt
3½ tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp five spice powder
½ tsp ground pepper
3-4 tbsp oil

Approx. 5m sausage casing
5cm long rubber hose for stuffing

Method:
1. Prepare all ingredients as instructed above (Pic. 2).
2. Heat oil in a pan. Fry sliced shallots till fragrant. Add in all the ingredients in (1) and fry till fragrant.
3. Season with all the seasoning. Dish out and let cool.
4. Cut sausage casing to 40cm sections. Soak in water until you want to use them (to ease the stuffing).
5. Take one of the sausage casings, tie a knot at one end of the casing. At the other end, fit a rubber hose to aid in stuffing (Pic. 3).
6. With the help of a chopstick, slowly push the fried ingredients in (3) through the rubber hose into the casing. Tie a knot half way through the casing if you wish. Continue to stuff till the end of the casing and tie a knot. Repeat with the rest of the casings (Pic. 4).
7. NOTE: DO NOT STUFF the casing too full. The casing should be about 70% full as glutinous rice will expand during steaming.
8. In a steamer, bring water to boil. Steam sausages over rapid boiling water for 1.5-2 hours. Replenish with boiled water if required.
9. Let cool for a while. Slice and serve with dipping sauce of your choice.
10. Storage: Deep frozen in air tight bag/ container. Thaw well and steam before serving.
