a.k.a. Drooling Smiley Face Kiwi Fruit Rice with Fish Roe and Pork

kiwi

My girlfriend bought a lot of Kiwi fruit weeks ago – there were 8 of these French green kiwifruits and she’s eaten only one during all that time. I’m not a fan of fruits in general so it remained uneaten for several days.

I noticed the furry little things in the fridge during the weekend and thought it’ll be a waste to let it rot. I decided to remedy that by cooking something that sounded good – Kiwi fruit rice! :)

It was the perfect solution!

You will need:
Kiwi fruits
Yoghurt
Fish roe
Kwe Hua meat
Century eggs
Rice

meat

Yes, this is another variant of my preserved meat meals. Heh! However, I decided on going for presentation this time – I’ll make a smiley face out of this sweet and savory meal!

I’ll like to call this Drooling Smiley Face Kiwi Fruit Rice with Fish Roe and Pork. I’ll explain the “drooling” part later. :)

I used 3 kiwi fruits and sliced it into circles.

slicing

That was a mistake. I should have peeled it before doing so coz it became rather hard to remove the skin after slicing.

Told you I wasn’t good with fruits. >.<

kiwifruit

Anyway, I mixed 2 cups of rice with 3 kiwi fruits, one lonely fish roe and a piece of waxed meat before turning the rice cooker on.

prep

That’s the beauty of this – there’s no additional cooking needed, everything is done by the rice cooker. :)

done

It was ready after 10 minutes. I originally made it to look sorta like a face but then I realized I could make it look MORE like a face by arranging the fish roe as the “nose” and the waxed meat as the “mouth”. That leaves the “eyes” – century eggs. :D

The finishing touch was some fresh yoghurt – this is the plain unflavored ones, don’t use the flavored ones, it’ll ruin the taste of the dish.

yoghurt

I dabbed a generous portion on the waxed meat “mouth” to look like it was drooling. Food is all about presentation as well. ;)

I took a tentative scoop of rice…

…and was amazed. The fruity citrus tang of the Kiwi combined with the sour yoghurt and rice tastes exceptionally delicious! It’s very refreshing! It’s tastes like…a beach holiday with the warm sun on your back and the cool breeze from the sea coming in.

It tasted like what an oasis would seem to someone wondering in a desert for 2 days without water.

The waxed meat and fish roe provides a savory twist to it. I ate one mouthful of the kiwi + yoghurt + rice and alternated it with waxed meat + fish roe + century egg + rice.

eating

It’s like having a main and a dessert in one dish!

It is surprisingly good, I kid you not! Let your adventurous palate roam with this unique dish and check it out for yourself.

You can also forgo the meat and just cook Kiwi fruit rice and pair it with yoghurt for a dessert dish – I’m sure it’ll taste equally good. :)

  1. haha bro it dun look like a face to me it look like something else :PPP
    ada telur ada batang
    got white thing coming out tooo haha

    • Heh! Hey, now that you mentioned it…it does look like that when you turn it upside down. This gives me a great idea, I’ll make an even better one next time with different ingredients. ;)

      ….then it’ll really look phallic. :D

  2. lolol i was about to comment something similar to dinz above! and got green pubic hair!

    • I didn’t even realize it Kim! :D

      The “pubic hair” is made even better by the fact that the kiwi slices actually has black seeds inside. I’m sure fatt choy (the moss) would do a better job though.

      It’s all good, I can make a new project in food presentation next time around.

      I shall call it…A Taste Down South! ;)

  3. very interesting combination but kiwi makes me sick (allergic), maybe sub it with apple ermm..

    • Yeah, I’m planning to do a full dessert dish next time – perhaps with regular rice first before glutinous rice or cous cous. I can think of a lot of interesting things to do – come to think of it, we bought a whole nangka fruit in the weekend. It’s still in the fridge. :)

  4. The drool looked gross… lol

    • Heh! I didn’t mean for it to turn out that way. :)

      It looked like a smiley face to me. I wanted to add some fresh plain yoghurt coz I reckon it’ll go very well with the kiwifruit rice.

      It does! Don’t let that put you off, it’s a great combination, and kiwifruit cooks with rice in a cooker surprisingly well. :)

  5. This looks really odd HB. The only rice and fruit I know is the mango sticky rice thingy. But this is honestly Urgh. LOL.

    • I love that stuff too! The best mango with sticky rice I’ve had is in Thailand. Very nice. :D

      I’ve had durian with stick rice too, another good combo – available locally.

      I’m going to try nangka with rice – will try making my own. We’ll see how it turns out Jo. :)

  6. Ummmm…I think I’ld pass…No, thank you! LOL!!!

  7. Omg… weird combination!!! lolol

    • Indeed! But it works very well mate, trust me on this. You can forgo the meat – just the kiwifruit rice with yoghurt, it’s awesome! :)

  8. OMO! PEI DAN, WAXED MEATS, yogurt, kiwi and rice?!

    • Heh! It is really good Michelle but that probably is due to my current obsession with waxed meat and I’ve always loved century eggs. :D

      …however, if you want to try making it, just cook kiwifruit with rice and eat it with yoghurt. I’m sure it goes better with sticky rice, this honestly is a good combo. :)

  9. hahaha! how your using Kwe Hua meat to go with everything…..i’d reckon kiwi and caramelised sugar might just work. goes well with something like pancake…..

    • Heh! It’s my current love affair bro! I crave for Kwe Hua meat almost every single day! :D

      It’s nicer when you buy in bulk – it comes in it’s original packaging and it’s still red and oily instead of greyish and dried out.

      Yeah, I’m thinking that sounds pretty good too but I’m going to try a nangka rice first. :)

  10. omg did u make your gf eat that?! lol. this looks really scary. lol

    • Heh! She WANTED the fish roe inside. I just wanted to put waxed meat inside. :)

      She said the kiwifruit rice with yoghurt is pretty good actually. Seriously.

      Don’t be put off by the unfortunate arrangment, meant it to be a smiley face but didn’t realize that it would be something else when turned upside down. :x

      Do try the kiwifruit rice with yoghurt, give it a chance. It’s good. :)

  11. omg DISLIKE!!

  12. i am so confused i don’t even know where to begin o.O

    • OH! Lemme make some for you Fresh! :D

      I’m sure you’ll love it!

      I’ll do without the meat and fish roe…just the kiwifruit and rice and yoghurt.

      I’m sure it’ll work even better with sticky rice! :)

  13. Hey Huai Bin, how’ve you been? Great post on yet another one of your “adventurous” culinary creations :)
