Paddy Frog Porridge

Some people perceive paddy frog as an exotic food, but not for me.

I have got the idea of cooking paddy frog porridge from my neighbour. I’ve eaten it from restaurant countless times, but just never cooked it myself.


I followed the recipe from here, but I’ve omitted the chicken thigh meat. I used only half the frog per serving, but the outcome is still superb!

The porridge has a great smell from all ingredients, especially the fried shallot. I love the smooth texture of the porridge and it goes well with the frog meat.

Sarah could finish the whole plate of porridge including the soup (although she just had her milk 30 minutes ago, mind you).

Sue Jean:
Do you like it personally? Maybe you can give a try, it really taste good.

Mommy Gwen:
I never tried the stir fried frogs, must try one day. I always order steamed paddy frogs with a lot of gingers. Nice!
I like the porridge too. Yummy!

It is okay KC, you could always share what you think about the food. Different ppl has different food preference.
I did not know about it will make the skin very smooth after eating it. But I know it is a yummy food. Hehe.

Woww...all your kids had paddy frog before? You managed to buy it at SG?
I never think of it is good for the leg muscle until my neighbour told me.
Would you cook the porridge to Ryan too once she started taking solid food?

little prince's mummy said...

My son love this porridge, too! I didn't add anything extra, Just the porridge and the paddy froggie... taste sweet enough!~

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Ooo...Sean is a big fan of the porridge too? You able to get it from the wet market?
For me, I still add a bit of ginger. But it taste good too.

I did cooked this porridge for Ryan quite sometime back.It is difficult to buy a big frog at Sibu,most of them are so small.
I like to cook frog legs with dried chillies...So yummy !!

I tired this once...but the paddy frog turned out tough!!!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Maybe the paddy frog has been cooked in the porridge for quite some time?

Ryan also had this porridge before? He likes it?
Even here at KL also difficult to buy paddy frog, but luckily my mom managed to get a big and fresh one for me.
Frog legs with dried chillies? Mind to share the steps? Thanks!
