Rice Porridge (Congee)

By: Kay Lalor January 16, 2022
Rice porridge (congee) also called "Mov Kua Dis" in Hmong (pronounced as moa-kua-dee in white dialect, or pronounced as moa-kua-klee in green dialect - which is the dialect I speak) is a popular dish among the asian culture. Some asian cultures eat rice porridge as breakfast, but I grew up eating it throughout the day for some days. The reason so is because usually my parents would make a large batch and we would eat it throughout the day or even days afterwards. Rice is such a staple in itself, and rice porridge was one of the ways to deliciously eat this staple.
