Rice Congee Wth Salted Egg & Minced Chicken


Congee I guess is the food when we are not up to mark with health. Down with flu, fever or cough, or while on the road to recovery, rice congee definitely is a lighter meal for gliding smoothly through our throat and tummy. Also, for those who don't want to stuff up their hunger with a heavy duty night meal, why not to congee?. For me, I won't mind congee everyday, anytime, and even when I am bright and alert with "health is wealth". However, being married to a typical Indian man who must have curries, lets say 365 days (Prawn Devil Curry, Ikan Pari/Stingray Sambal, Fish Curry With Radish & Masala Mutton Curry), I made a big pot of congee when he is away, and congee supposedly is my food for the next two days. Stocked up in the fridge, or made there and then, that's why I prefer plain congee to tuck alongside easy-preasy condiments. For this congee, can we please move on the recipe now? Thank you people.
