  • 1/2 cup glutinous rice
  • 2 tablespoon black rice or any other type you prefer
  • 1 tablespoon peanut
  • 5 Chinese dried red dates
  • 1 tablespoon mung beans
  • 1 tablespoon red beans
  • 1 tablespoon corn flakes
  • 10 dried Longan
  • 1/2 tablespoon walnut
  • 6-10 cups of water depending on your cooking ware
High pressure cooker:
  1. Pre-soak peanuts, mung beans and red beans, walnut for at least 4 hours and soak the rice for around 1 hour too. Place all the ingredients and pour around 6 cups of water. Cook for around 30 minutes until pressure mode or select beans option.
For pot without pressure mode:
  1. Pre-soak beans overnight and soak rice for at least 4 hours. Mix all the ingredients with 10 cups of water. Cook with strong heat to a boil, turn to low heat, cover and simmer for 40 to 60 minutes until all the ingredients are soft to taste. Leave a gap between the pot edge and cover to prevent the boiling congee from blowing out.
  2. Serve hot, optionally with a sweetening like sugar.
