This recipe is a godsend for those of you who do not own a claypot. We tweaked the recipe a little so you get all the yummy flavours of a typical claypot rice minus the all the hassles!
Rather than just throwing everything in the rice cooker, we pre-fry the ingredients in a wok to give it more colour and flavours. The next step is pretty simple, when the rice is steaming, just combine everything and let the rice cooker work its magic.
Another classic yet homely dish. The eggplants and minced meat are braised in a combination of spicy bean paste and soy sauce. It then absorbs all the umami like a sponge.
Also, don’t underestimate the salted fish, as it adds another layer of aroma to the dish.
