3 cups jasmine rice, rinse
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp cooking oil
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
5 cm fresh ginger, slice thinly
Salt to taste
Chicken broth as needed – to cook rice
1 cornish game hen - clean
Cook the following until salt and water dissolved (brine water)
2 cups water
3 cloves garlic – smashed
2 tbsp chopped ginger
5 tbsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
Place the Cornish game hen in a Ziploc bag and pour with the brine water. Let the Cornish hen marinated for about 24 hours. When it’s ready, take the Cornish game hen out from the plastic bag and discard water.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place game hen in a ovenproof baking dish and roast for about 1.25 hours.
Heat cooking oil and sesame oil in a medium pan. Add ginger and stir until fragrant. Add garlic and continue to stir for one minute. Stir in jasmine rice and add some salt, continue to cook for about 3 minutes. Turn off heat.
Move rice to the rice cooker. Cook the rice just like cooking regular steam- rice, replacing water with chicken broth.
Serve rice with roasted game hen, sambal badjak and chopped ginger.
