The Ultimate Mushu's Wake Up Call Congee/Porridge! - Mulan

Mulan (1998): American animated musical adventure film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation for Walt Disney Pictures. The film's plot takes place in China during the Han dynasty, where Fa Mulan, daughter of aged warrior Fa Zhou, impersonates a man to take her father's place during a general conscription to counter a Hun invasion.

Mushu's Congee: Congee is a type of rice porridge or gruel eaten in Asian countries. The word 'congee' itself is a derivation of the Tamil word கஞ்சி. When eaten as plain rice congee, it is most often served with side dishes. Before Mulan sets off her first day of training with the Chinese army, her guardian dragon, Mushu, feeds her some happy porridge so she's ready for the day.

"All right! Rise and shine Sleeping Beauty. Come and get your clothes on. Get ready. Got breakfast for ya. Look, you get porridge, and it's happy to see you!" - Mushu


  • 1 + 1/2 cups grain rice (rinsed)

  • 6 cups water

  • 3 cups chicken stock

  • 1 inch fresh ginger (peeled and cut in half)

  • 1 TSP rice vinegar

  • 1/2 TSP salt

  • 1 TSP soy sauce

  • 1/2 TSP sesame oil

  • Beef salami

  • 4 medium size eggs


1. Pour in water, chicken stock and ginger in a cooking cooking pan or a round bottom wok. Let it boil.

2. Then, add in rinsed rice. Let it cook under medium heat for 30 - 40 minutes. Make sure to stir it every 5 - 8 minutes to prevent the rice from sticking on the pan.

3. Once cooked, turn off the heat and remove the ginger.

4. Add in rice vinegar, salt, soy sauce and sesame oil. Mix until incorporated. Set aside.

5. Heat up some cooking oil on a skillet and fry the beef salami. I don't have the long meat slice so I have to cut the beef salami into 2 portions and will combine it later to create the smiley face. Fry sunny side up eggs for the eyes.

6. Serve the porridge on a round white plate. Top with 2x sunny side up eggs for the eyes and 2x beef salami for the smiley! All done!

"Look you get porridge, and its HAPPY TO SEE YOU!"🥣
