Homemade Rice Wine


Our homemade Rice Wine is made of  红麴 and Glutinous Rice
My Pictures

Of course the first few bottles are specially made for my confinement in 4 months time. How many I put aside for myself, at least 6 bottles!!! Haha, now my siblings already start ordering their “confinement dishes” from mummy, who is going to be my confinement lady. I very mean hor? Hey, my mummy is a good cook and she used to help my aunts and my sister during their confinement months too. No point of me spending $2k hiring a stranger, right? Besides, she is also grandmummy to our wawee, I feel safe …

Okay, we are going to make more rice wine as some of my friends are also ordering from my mummy. Selling at $15 per bottle ( tiger beer bottle size). Girls, homemade rice wine is not only used for confinement dishes or meant for confinement mummy 補補身子, anyone of us can eat/drink it anytime we want. I used to add this whenever I cook sesame ginger chicken, just pour a bit of wine, voila~! I wanna eat now.. 😦

  1. Can i have a bottle?

  2. di, i also want to order! but how many do i need huh? need to add to all the dishes during confinement ah?

  3. My mum will add this to most of the dishes she cooks for me. not a lot but it depends on you also. I like the smell and taste so I will ask for more.

    My confinement will be different from most people, I don’t have fanciful tonic soups like many mummies. I only drink/eat those my mum knows how to cook.

    I will suggest you to take 4 first then see if you needed more. We will definitely make more than enough, by the time you think you need more, can pass to you.

    Some kiasu mummies bought more than 10 bottles and got problem finishing them. To us, not an issue because everyone at home loves it and mum also cooks wine chicken for the rest of the family.

    My aunts and uncles are love it too esp. my younger cousin brother. 🙂

  4. hi di, i jus checked wif my mum. she said she has just prepared the rice wine for me so i won’t be ordering liao. so sorry…

  5. No problem bren. you’re lucky, your mum also knows how to make.

  6. Di, how to cook sesame ginger chicken? I want to cook for myself. I think I can 2 bottles from you:p I love rice wine, can keep for how long & how to store?

  7. Sam, can store for very long one, dry and no direct sun light area will do.

    ingredient :
    – chicken
    – ginger
    – garlic
    – sesame oil
    – salt and pepper to taste

    u can get chicken thigh. cut into small pieces.
    heat up sesame oil, add ginger and garlic, fried a while.
    add chicken pieces and let it cook for a while
    add wine and let it cook for 1-2 minutes
    if you want the sauce to be thicker then u add 太白粉勾芡。

    Today weather is not too bad, I will cook it at my mum’s place and post the steps.

  8. Yipee!!! I am lucky to see the steps=)

  9. weather is nice, bought a chicken. Now marinate the chicken with some osyter sauce, pepper and soya sauce. confinement cannot use oyster, now can. 🙂

  47. Hi Is the RIce wine still available for order?
    May I know how long one can keep the rice wine? how early before EDD should i order the rice wine?

  48. You may order now and collect it about 1 month later. As for how long you can keep it, very long – years but most people finish them within 6 months-1 yr. Some finish all 6 bottles during confinement month.

    It takes at least 1 month to prepare the rice wine, just let me know as early as possible. Will be making my 1st batch tomorrow. So, the collection will be end of next month.
