Stir-Fried Glutinous Rice - Saan Chaw Loh Mai Faan

How did we get this recipe for stir-fried glutinous rice (Saan Chaw Loh Mai Faan, lit. trans.= raw glutinous rice stir-fried)? It was not from my parents. Actually Kelvin saw this on a Hong Kong tv show. His favourite Hong Kong star Ella Koon was challenged to make this dish. Since it was Ella, he paid attention very well :D.. Result was that he copied the dish with good results.

Here we go, Saan Chaw Loh Mai Faan by Kelvin copying Ella Koon.

Ingredients (makes for 2-3 people)

  • Glutinous rice - 1,5 cup (soaked over night)
  • Chinese Sausage (Laap Cheung) - 2 pieces
  • Chinese Mushroom - 3 medium size
  • Dried Shrimp - 30 grams
  • Egg - 1
  • Coriander - 1/4 cup (chopped finely- or subsitude w/ spring onions)
  • Dark Soy Sauce - 4 tbsp
  • Oyster Sauce - 2 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Pepper - few dashes
  • Cooking Oil for stir-fry

First dice/slice the sausage and the mushrooms. Heat 1 tbsp oil and stir-fry untill fragant, set aside.

Rinse the rice you have soaked overnight. After you rinsed the rice, pour the rice with sufficient water into a wok. The rice should be totally covered in water. Cook the rice on medium heat, but do not let the water boil. Stir well so the rice does not stick to each other. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the rice.

Tip: The rice should be almost cooked, but not too soft. It would be hard to stir-fry the rice if you overcook it as it sticks together and will form a lump.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in the wok and scramble the egg. Add the drained rice to the egg, mix well. Add the shrimps, sausage, mushrooms and coriander to the wok and mix it all together.


Add the salt, pepper, oyster sauce and dark soy sauce to the rice. Taste if it needs more salt, ifso add 1/2 tbsp salt. Repeat this untill you are happy with the taste.

Hope you like it!
