    I have a question. to cook the rice, u add the seasonings to the rice and then do you add water since its being cooked in the rice cooker?

    ur website is so lovely.. i do miss being a malaysian now.

    • Well, rinse the rice like you are cooking regular steamed rice (meaning with water), then add the seasonings into the water and rice. The water will turn dark in color…does it make sense?

    Thanks for such a great recipe, I’ve been making this dish using your recipe for quite a few years now and I’ll be cooking it again tonight for me and my wife.

    The only problem is that when I go on my annual visit to Singapore and try this dish it always seems tasteless in comparison to what I’ve become used to!

    Hello Bee, I tried your recipe it was delicious. I have a recipe which i use to make clay pot chicken rice.

    I blend onions, garlic,lemongrass & ginger into paste.The chicken is then marinated with dark thick soya sauce with some white pepper.
    Half cook the rice and set aside.
    Heat pan in low heat and pour the paste into it, stir till you smell the fragrance and add the chicken.Add 1/2 cup of water and let chicken to cook, once the chicken is cook add the rice and let it cook, add water if necessary and accordingly. Add salt to taste.
    Chop some spring onions for garnishing.

    Hi Bee,

    I have tried the Claymore rice recipe and it is simple and nice.
