Plain Congee (ข้าวต้มกุ๊ย)

In Thailand we eat these plain congee with a massive range of dishes, from simple pickle to omelette to stir-fries.

Serves: 4

What you need

  • 1 cup Thai jasmine rice
  • 1/4 cup Sticky rice
  • 6 cups water

How to put this together

  1. Add both types of rice in a pot + 3 cups of water
  2. Bring to boil, then lower the heat to medium
  3. Cook for 20-30 mins, stirring occasionally. Add more water as the rice absorbs water.

Note: if you don’t serve it immediately the rice will continue to absorb water. This is absolutely fine. Just add more hot water and stir to mix it all up before you serve.
