The weather nowadays has gone "crazy" - breeziness and real scorcher alternating in between. With such weather cooking is a chore after a day's work in the office. With the help of "magic pot" a one-pot instant meal is waiting to be consumed in the evening.
The scallops, oysters and some Chinese herbs (yu-zhu, dang-shen and wolfberry fruits) are soaked in water the night before. In the morning boil water in the pot and dump in all ingredients when water boils. Add seasoning. Cover pot and let contents boil for 1-2 mins. Put the pot back into the vacuum cooker and let it cook till ready to be eaten in the evening.
