Rice-cooker "Claypot" Rice

Claypot (chinese: 砂锅 shāguō or 煲仔 bāozǎi) is a type of cookware made from clay. Claypot cooking is used around the world but mostly in Asian countries. In China there are some famous claypot dishes : congee, claypot tofu and seafood, claypot pork belly, claypot fish and claypot rice. Claypot rice is easier to make because we can make it just using a rice cooker.

First time I tried claypot rice was in Hong Kong. A friend of mine has recommended a very good claypot rice restaurant in Yau Ma Tei area. They had many choices of claypot rice but their famous dishes were pork ribs claypot rice and chicken claypot rice. This recipe was inspired from this restaurant.
