Congee, or in Chinese, 粥, is basically rice porridge. It can be eaten just plain, or with a bunch of toppings included, one could be, for example, fried dough stick. The lack of oil and the use of not much salt needed in congee, plus the very or somewhat watery texture of it, makes this a very healthy dish, which a lot of Asian people will eat when they are feeling sick or have digestive problems. In this episode, we make two kinds of congee: pork preserved eggs and tofu corn.
