A serving of Good Friday PorridgeAs we celebrate Holy Week, Roman Catholics are not allowed to eat pork, chicken and any other red meat every Good Friday. It is part of our beliefs and tradition. During this time, we have already practiced not cooking our regular heavy meal. Here's one recipe I would like to share that most of us prepare in every home.



  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 l water
  • 1/2 cup fishball
  • 3 eggs (sliced into cubes)
  • 1 Tbsp cheese (sliced into cubes)
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 fish cube seasoning
  • ground nuts (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Ingredients for Good Friday porridge.


  1. Saute minced garlic, minced onion and sliced fishballs along with the fish cube. Cook until golden brown.
  2. Ginger and garlic being sauteed in a pan.
  3. Add a small amount of water and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Adding water to porridge.
  5. Add the rice, stir and let simmer for another 5 minutes.
  6. Adding rice to porridge.

  7. Add the rest of the water and keep stirring the porridge from time to time as it simmers. This is to avoid the rice from sticking together as it cooks. Add salt and pepper to taste. You'll know it's ready when the rice expands and the soup becomes sticky.
  8. Adding water to porridge.
