My Mom's story of how to cook a good bowl of porridge
The rice appears grainy due to the way its cooked, prepared. My mom learnt this from a stall owner at Macpherson old market who sells porridge. The old man is about to retire and has no one to hand over his recipe or business. My mom asked him how the porridge is cook till it still look grainy despite being cooked. She loves to eat this porridge. And has been telling me for years to cook porridge this way.
