Home Cooked Yam Rice For Dinner

I had 2 medium sized taro or yam in my fridge and I couldn't decide on what to cook with it. I asked hubby whether I should cook yam rice or yam cake (woo tau koh) for yesterday's dinner. He thought for a while and replied that he prefer yam rice. So I cooked yam rice for dinner.
This yam rice has more yam than rice.
First fry chopped garlic and onions with cooking oil & sesame oil. Add pre-soaked dried prawns, diced mushrooms, ham, and then add yam cubes and finally add the rinsed rice. Add salt, soy sauce, oyster sauce and enough water to cook rice. Dish out into the rice cooker or steaming tray. Steam till the rice is cooked about 20 minutes or more. Give the rice a good mix and scoop onto serving plates to serve.
The yam rice looks pale because I prefer not to add dark sauce. Garnish with spring onions and served with lots of spicy chili and garlic crisp. I cooked more than enough for 3 people and I packed some for a friend. I had 2nd helping of yam rice. I am a big fan of yam and I love this delicious yam rice.
 Saw this banner and new signboard behind our regular coffee shop in our area. We are looking forward to have breakfast in this new eatery and our target will be the beef brisket soup.
Saw these hibiscus plants when we walked past this roadside stall. I stopped to take a snapshot and quickly moved on to avoid temptation.

Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and wishes.

These evil thoughts lead to evil actions and

afterwards to the death penalty from God.

(James 1:14-15, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. The yam rice does look delicious! I'm a fan of yam too but not so much the kids. So I don't buy yam often.

    I'm always tempted to buy plants too. Have to firmly remind myself that I do NOT have a green thumb.

    1. Yes, if it is only for 1 person, then troublesome to cook. I am glad that hubby likes yam too.

  4. Wow! Your yam rice looks so delicious! I love that it has more yam than rice. I would also be aiming for the beef brisket. I love hibiscus flowers too and also the hibiscus flowers drink. How much is one pot of this hibiscus flower?

  16. Thanks for your recipe. I can now attempt yam rice. Home cooked is better. I have the ones outside and it had hardly any ingredients or flavor. Maybe I did not go to the right place.

    1. The yam rice I have tasted so far hardly any yam. Home cooked is still the best, more yam than rice.
