Cambodian rice porridge (Bobor)

This was the Cambodian dish I'd wanted to try from Rick Stein.
I can't find it online specifically, you'll just have to buy the book! I did find this version though.  If you use this recipe then ignore all the meats except for the ground pork, or pork mince as it's known as in the UK.
This was amazing, and Niamh's new favourite.  The flavours are savoury and spicy and the soft rice makes it so comforting.  It would be brilliant when you have a cold, and need comfort food but spicy too.
I think I'm going to try the Bangladesh chapter next, so I can at least say I've made a dish from each chapter!


  1. Love spicy rice and really like the sound of this with the pork mince. Also going to try the sticky chicken drumsticks - they look delicious and I'm always looking for different ways to cook drumsticks :)

  2. Both were great. The rice porridge will be our new comfort dish.
    The drumsticks are great to leave all day, though I'm sure they could be done in the oven or barbecue too.
