To cook everything in a pot is a convenient way of preparing meal.  Savoury rice is a common one-pot meal and you may add in varieties of ingredients. I normally use dried and preserved ingredients - chicken or minced pork, mushroom, liver sausages, cuttlefish, shrimp, szechuan vegetables, mui-choy, fresh bamboo shoots, garlic and ginger.

Boil rice with water which had been used to soak mushroom, shrimp and cuttlefish.  Season rice with sugar, salt and Japanese sweet sauce (mirin).  Marinate meat and leave aside.  Fry the garlic, ginger, cuttlefish, shrimp and mushroom until fragrant.  Add in these ingredients when rice is boiling.  When rice is almost dried sprinkle on top the rice with meat and rest of the ingredients.


  1. I like the addition of dried cuttlefish. A nice textural contrast!

  2. I like one pot meals. :-) Easy and yet so delicious!
