What to do with leftover ham or turkey after the celebration? That’s always a question. So many ideas out there for it.

I like to wing it as I cook. It depends on what I have and what I am craving on that moment.

Since last night I have the crave for bubur Ayam or chicken porridge. Well no chicken in the house. I do have the leftover ham from yesterday. I remember my mom made chicken porridge and then she made like an omelette with ham and served the chicken porridge with a slice of that ham omelette.  So I am thinking this morning to make those. But again no chicken in the house.  I do have the chicken broth in the freezer that I made in instant pot. There you go, wing it. Thawing the broth, cut up the ham, scoop 2 instant pot cup rice and add 12 cups broth. Add the ham in the pot with the rice and broth, add salt, white pepper, garlic powder. Close the lid and vent and press porridge,  it said 20 minutes. Done and time to binge on netflix again.When it finally beeped, I let it sit until lunch time.

Scoop some of the porridge into my bowl, topped with cilantro, green onion,  dried raddish, chunk of ham. Remember I said I love spicy food. So I always add this sambal, spicy salsa sorta kind. Made of Thai chili, garlic, vinegar and sugar. So there half tablespoon of that and my lunch is completed. It was yummy and only 1 pot to wash. Can’t wait for my boys to try it. Yepp they are still asleep, I enjoy my quiet time though😉.

So there ham porridge for you..err me. Enjoy…!
