When it comes to preparing meals for cbb, there’s one method I especially like: Throw everything into the rice cooker, press ‘Cook’, and walk away!
This is another of those one-pot rice cooker recipes that satisfies all nutritional needs in a meal: meat, vegetables, rice. To ramp up the flavour, I like to use chopped up leeks (the white part) and a bit of ginger-garlic paste. I often cook this for dinner for the entire family… I don’t add salt to our portions also, but you could if you wish.
I’ve got many pms asking me which rice cooker I am using. I can’t live without our Tefal Spherical Pot Rice Cooker. It’s super easy to use and practically fool proof. I can cook one-pot meals like this, or make a comforting porridge or congee. The included steamer rack also means that I can steam fish/meat/eggs while cooking rice. Saves me so much time! I reviewed this product last year, along with a recipe of multi-grain rice. Click on this link to read more.
It’s not a super-must to add leek, but I had some in the fridge that day and used them. I must say it really enhances the flavour a lot. This recipe also calls for ginger-garlic paste. You can make your own by blending 2 cloves of garlic with 3 slices of ginger in the food processor, or simply smash the garlic and grate the ginger. It’s more work but it means less things to wash. Or you could use store-bought paste, preferably with no salt added.
