Another tasty porridge which is an easy, complete meal for all.  This is a homey porridge that is easy to prepare yet it is flavourful and tasty. Served with shredded ginger and chopped spring onions, add flavor and fragrance to this simple porridge.
I added some crispy Chinese crullers to this porridge. Nice.

Kimmy, this porridge makes for a very filling meal. I would skip the dried scallops since I find the smell too strong for me. Perhaps dried scallops would be very nice too.

Hi Phong Hong, sure its nice with dried scallops, there is a unique kind of sweetness from it. I wanted to buy some dried scallops when I was in Xiamen but totally forgotten about it until I read this recipe.
