aunty yochana, can i ask what is bubble rice? Where to get it?

yochana said...

Hi Regina and Ling,

Bubble rice can be bought from bakery marts. In chinese is called "Mi chang". It's acutally rice, dried in the sun and I think they roast it or fried it. Not too sure about it.

Hope you keep baking and trying out recipes. Thanks for browsing..

Hi

Is this the Hainanese "Hor Gong"? May I know which bakery marts sell the bubble rice. Don't think can find this from places like Phoon Huat.

I know my mum used to make bubble rice from the leftover cooked rice which has been dried under the hot sun. She will then deep-fry it in lot of oil and the dried cooked rice will then puff up.

I have been looking for this recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I also enjoying visting your website and seeing all your marvellous bake.

Hi Josephine,

Hi Aunty Yochana,
I love looking at your blog. Thanks for this recipe. My husband is Hakka and he loves it. Aunty yochana, I made this yesterday and it was very fragrant. I have one question. The rice bubbles didn't stick and it was all loose after it cooled. I did test the sugar syrup and it fell to the base of the plate and solidified. Where did I go wrong?

Regards,
Lilian

Hi Lilian,

You did probably undercook the syrup which makes your bubble rice crackers disintegrate. Cook a little longer but not too long as it will turn hard.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Thanks for your reply. I probably did undercook the syrup. Will try again.

Aunty, I have one more question. When you mix the rice bubbles with the syrup, is it with fire still on or off? I find that while mixing, it cools very fast.

Regards,
Lilian

Hi Lilian,

Normally what I do is, don't cook too thick cos it's hard to mix it. So when it's almost thick, I pour in the rice bubbles with the heat on (low heat) and stir till well combined and at the same time it gets thicker and they will stick to each other well.

Hi Gerrie,

maltose is a very thick cooked caramel which comes in small tubs. We can get it easily over here and we used it for making roast chicken.

hi aunty
can i ask pls if the bubble rice used in this recipe would be the same and the rice bubbles the amoh eats for breakfast, ie Keloggs brand, etc? i am in melbourne and don't think any of the asian grocery stores would sell mi chang. thank you.

selena

yochana said...

Hi selena,

This is not the same rice bubbles that we took for breakfast. This is the old traditional rice bubbles. They dry the overnight night and then either fry it or oven bake. I think you can try using the kellog's rice bubbles.

hello

many thanks for this recipe. it's a breeze to make and the result is fabulous!

In case anyone would like to know, I used kellogg's rice krispies, skipped maltose, but the result turned out great!

Hi Aunty Yochana

Pls reconfirm if we need to put in 120g or just 12g of sesame seeds? 120g seems a huge quantity to me.

Thanks Emily.
