Loh Mai Kai (Homemade)

Lor mai kai (glutinous rice with chicken) is always found in any Dim Sum menu.

It's always prominently displayed at the front entrance of many coffee shops.

Usually kept warm in a glass covered cabinet together with other paos.

A quick bite for those who has no time to make breakfast at home.

Commercial Lor mai kai is steamed glutinous rice with marinated lean chicken
meat and mushroom made with an inverted tin bowl and served on a plate.

 Home made ones are much tastier as the added ingredients are more varied with abalone,
Chinese sausage......etc and the XO oyster sauce used.

Glutinous rice like pulut susu is used as it's excellent for it's smooth and sticky texture.
