An easy way to cook congee is putting rice in freezer for overnight.
So on the night before, wash rice, drain them. Put them in a bag. And put into freezer.
The next day. Boil a pot of hot water. No need to thaw the rice. Just put frozen rice in the boiling water. Once the water boils again, turn to low heat. Stir slowly so that rice won’t get burnt at the bottom. Cook for 20-30 mins. Rice will become very sticky and thick. If you want the congee to be very thick, the ratio of rice and water can be 1:10. Actually, my ratio of rice and water is 1:15. As I cook it longer, the congee can be very thick too.
Add in shrimps, cook for 3-5 mins.
Add in vegetables you like, cook for another 3 mins.
Season with a little salt and garnish with chopped spring onion.
