Lor Mai Fan

Glutinous Rice known also as Lor Mai Fan is a crowd pleaser. Easy to cook and i have served it at lots of parties that i have been to. It is also quite a common dish for bring to work lunch for my family too. This quantity would serve about 8-10 serves. Dont you worry about thinking the quantity is too much, because it can be stored away in the freezer for up to 3 months for a snack or even a quick dinner solution.

I mean its easy because it gets cooked in a microwave!! YES!!!! it does !!!! all in less than half an hour!!!



  1. 1kg glutinous rice, rinsed and soaked preferably overnight in a microwable bowl.
  2. 4 Chinese sausage, LUP CHOONG sliced thinly
