Traditional claypot, crusted rice, lap cheong, salted fish, and generous servings of chicken? YES PLEASE! 😀
This recipe of ???makes an awesome one pot meal for the whole family. We created this recipe to go with the flavours of Pokka’s easy to drink Houjicha! The charred claypot taste (best parts of this dish as usual) and salted fish is perfectly matched with the houjicha’s roasted intensity. No sugar also means zero calories, which means it’s better for your health!
