Inspired by one of the claypot recipes in Neil Perry's latest cookbook, I rushed out and bought myself a claypot. I was excited at the thought of making a claypot meal, just like the way my dad and grandpa used to back home in Singapore. I have such vivid memories of them squatting next to the outdoor stove in the backyard, fanning the claypot; the smells, the sight, it evokes some very fond childhood memories.The recipe in mind was claypot chicken and glass noodles. Very simple, just stir fry some garlic and spring onions, add chicken, add shaoxing, sugar and light soy. Add water, bring to boil, then add fried tofu and glass noodles. A warm delicious one pot meal. This is the first of many claypot cooking adventures to come, I promise!
