Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup long-grain white rice

  • 1

    tsp. kosher salt

  • Chinese chile oil, for garnish

  • Thinly sliced scallions and small red chiles, for garnish

  • Crispy shallots, for garnish

Directions

In a sieve, rinse rice under cold water and let drain. Put rice, 8 cups water, and salt into a 4-qt. saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, partially covered and stirring occasionally, until the rice takes on the consistency of porridge, about 1½ hours. Divide porridge between 4 bowls and garnish each with a drizzle of chile oil, scallions, chiles, and crispy shallots.
