These homemade rice bubbles were given to me by my colleague Miss K and she is good at making these addictive snacks. I used to receive this Chinese New Year delicacy once a year but now she makes them often to give to friends and colleagues as gifts. I was given a big tupper of these homemade rice bubbles last Friday...awwwww this is something I truly look forward to receiving :))) Wild Boar and myself will be snacking on these rice bubbles after dinner while watching movies :p ...it was well flavored with just sea salt. Love it and WB asked me to ask Miss K for the recipe ! and I did! I am happy to share with you this easy to make rice bubbles :) with the curtesy of Miss K. Thank you Miss K for sharing how to make these addictive rice bubbles ( now I don't have to wait till CNY to get to savor these )
All you need is a space to sun the cooked rice. You can either cook a pot of rice or you can steam glutinous rice for making rice bubbles. For glutinous rice, you can a bit of coconut milk for better flavor.mmmm I didn't know they use glutinous rice for this :) Once it the rice or the glutinous rice is cooked, while still warm, scoop with a tablespoon of rice and arrange them on bamboo tray and leave them in the hot sun to dry the rice. This will take days to dry them ( depends on the weather ) . It must be throughly dried before you can deep fried in oil or they will not puff nicely. Simple...right ??? and here I thought it entails a lot of work ! After hearing the whole process on how to make these rice bubbles, I suddenly remembered how my grandma used to collect the bottom crust of cooked rice and made this for me and my siblings when we were young......
This is an addictive snack and it is YUMMY!
I want to make this but I have no helper to do the
drying process for me so I might as well wait
for MISS KONG to gift them to me
Elin is not only wicked but also scheming * wink wink
Have a nice day !
