In case you were wondering, yes, I do cook Asian food. 😛 Above is my healthy take on claypot rice. Verdict – too healthy. Haha…there’s something about claypot rice where the oil (lard at most times) just sings to your tastebuds.
Anyway, my claypot rice is a simple one-pot affair of rice, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, chopped french beans, shitake mushrooms (make sure it’s rehydrated) and tuna. I just dumped everything into the rice cooker and let it do it’s job.
Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 15 min (or more…if you’re cooking for more people)
Let me now tell you the unhealthy but still quick version. Into your rice goes large chunks of chicken (you can choose to pre-marinate them in dark soy sauce), dark & light soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, a small sliver of salted fish, mushrooms and sliced lap cheong (Chinese sausage)! Again, dump everything into the rice cooker and once it’s cooked, it’s claypot rice without the hassle of cleaning up burnt rice bits from the claypot!! Oh, you can add in veg into the claypot too. We all must load up on fibre. 😉
