How To Make Congee For Breakfast!


Congee or more commonly known as Jook in Thailand is often taken in the morning as breakfast like cereals and oats are taken in the Western world.

Thai Food Lovers

Jook is typically cooked plain and then you just add whatever meat or seafood and incidentals you desire

I like to use sushi rice since sushi rice is starchier resulting in a creamier jook.
