Yam Rice

Yam is probably one of my favorite root vegetables. It can be used as a dessert, snack and even in a main dish like this one. Yam chopped up add into “claypot rice” adds a texture to it.

I spotted Little inbox having an awesome recipe for Yam Rice as well (SOO love her presentation too!).

Yam Rice (Serves 4-5)
2 cups of rice (I use basmatic)

1 tsp of garlic minced
300 grams of Yam chopped
500 grams of chicken thigh meat diced
10 dried shitake mushrooms hydrated and diced

2-3 tablespoon of oyster sauce
2 tablespoon of soya sauce
2-3 tablespoon of Hua Tiao Wine
dashes of pepper

1) Marinate chicken with seasoning. Set aside for around 15-20 mins.

2) Heat pan with oil. Cook garlic. Sizzle chicken and add yam and mushrooms. Add a few tablespoons of water and cover.

3) Meanwhile cook rice.

4) After around 10 mins, add chicken into the rice pot. Cook till rice is done.

Serve with veges! =)

    I’ve yet to try yam rice but it’s definitely on my to-try list. Looks like a really healthy one-dish meal especially when you use basmatic rice 🙂
