The beguiling call of comfort that porridge brings when it’s cold out (or you have a cold) is one of the simplest joys that can instantaneously brighten a day. I’m not referring to the sweet oats of a Western breakfast but to a bowl of thick and savoury Asian congee, which is renowned for putting colour into the cheeks.

This Singapore-style three-egg porridge is a simple dish that can be easily whipped up in a hurry, perfect for a quick breakfast or light meal.
