Leicha 客家擂茶

The “Leicha” 擂茶 rice is a traditional hakka-chinese 客家 dialect group cuisine, back in the olden days, the common villagers and even soldiers in china considered “lei cha” rice as a rich source of nutrients and a medicinal food to fight against illnesses. it’s made with very simple, affordable, down-to-earth ingredients that are nutritious and generally good for our diet. For preparation leicha is not too complicated but involves a labour-intensive process of physically pounding and grinding the various ingredients into a fine texture with a thick guava thick wooden stick and a special deep leicha bowl; that’s why it’s called 擂 meaning “to pound or finely grind” but now day people grind leicha ingredients all in food processor  .

“Leicha” rice has become more widely found and popular in Malaysia and Singapore ! The reason is you either love it or hate it. i have to admit it’s quite an acquired taste.The most my family love is more mint leaves in the “lei cha” tea stock, having a minty taste in my rice yum ~

I always use my simple version of herb that i can easily get in my garden.

This is very healthy nutritions and delicious with many natural herbs.
