Rice Cooker Claypot Rice

Rice Cooker Claypot Rice

Claypot rice is one of my family’s favourite  hawker food. 

As the name of the dish suggests, the traditional way of cooking claypot rice is cooking the rice over charcoal in a claypot. This method of cooking produces nice smoky flavour with crunchy bits of rice at the bottom. 

However, the downside is that you  can’t leave it unattended while cooking. Otherwise, you may ends up with a pot of burnt rice. Be careful. 

So for those who wants to enjoy home cooked claypot rice but also want to do it in a set-and-forget manner, here is a good news for you.

Today, I am going to show you how to cook claypot rice in a rice cooker! Just follow the simple step-by-step instruction below and a plate of fragrant claypot rice will be ready in no time.

The rice absorbs all the flavours of the chicken, mushrooms, lup cheong and the dried shrimp. Both of the fragrance and taste of this claypot rice are so good you will make it over and over again.  

This recipe is easy to make, but it always helps to watch the step-by-step video tutorial below.
