I always believe when it comes to cooking, it is more of a personal preference. one may prefer to have more or less of a certain ingredient in a particular dish, one may opt to be more creative by introducing additional ingredients. =X and it is even more true when it comes to seasoning, there is no definite “perfect” seasoning as it is all up to your taste buds and preferences, more salt? less salt?

This recipe, is whipped up all according to how i prefer my steamed glutinous rice to taste like. So feel free to play around and whipped up your own version of steamed rice *wink* that’s the fun of cooking!

This should serve 4-6 *laugh* but it all depends on the portion size and the crowd u are serving to, (adults, children, big eater, small eater) 😛 In my place, it serves 3, Dad helped himself to 3 serving, mum 2 and me with 1. How does it tasted like? well… My family loved it! We munched up everything *gasp*
