Jasmine Rice Porridge
Jasmine Rice Porridge is the Thai / Lao equivalent for comfort food. Jasmine rice porridge is traditionally served for breakfast or as an appetizer. Use leftover Khao Chow which is jasmine rice from the night before and make a delicious breakfast in the morning.
Jasmine rice porridge also seems to be the Thai / Lao remedy for those who have fallen ill. You can cook chicken pieces with the garlic and oil before adding them to the rice in order to make chicken soup. Miraculously this remedy works! This dish is the Thai and Lao version of the Asian "congee soup".
