Rice Congee With Condiments

Such is life.Nothing is assured and nothing is guaranteed as well. Why go so far? What about marriage, are you asking me? Oh-boy! Tell me about it. Falling is love, maybe is not super easy, but quite possible. Thereafter once we tie the knot or slip the ring on each other? Reality sets in and the discoveries we actually find out? The discoveries to compatibility which can throw us off-guard, specifically food compatibility His and ours. My other half-half? Well, I sort of knew about his profound love for Indian food. But I didn't really find out if he will be okay to other kinda food. Take for example, rice congee/rice porridge which by far is the food in Chinese households compared to us Indians. I on the other hand, I simply adore Chinese food and porridge is the love of my food love too. But my man? Mmmmm! He won't get close. He just won't. What more pretty much can I say? Force him, literally? I tried, not forcing though. A small time talk every now and then, yet, it didn't work and I gave up. No point. I suppose sometimes this thing to forcing or sweet talking does not really work? I know. So, the alternative for me is making rice congee for my own eating pleasure when he is away. Settled. Rice congee can be made in rice cooker, slow cooker or over the stove. Of course, some salt goes in and plain rice congee lemme tell you is quite bland. So, we should think of side dishes to go with it. As many side dishes as you wish, depending on if time is on your side, otherwise, like for this rice congee, jiffy stir Fried Beans Garlic, Fried Salted Fish and Chilli Tauchu/Fermented Black Beans Bilis/Anchovies.
