    1. Hi Hui
      I loves to cook one pot meals; like stew where I have meat and vegetables all in one pot. After cooking, less scrubbing and cleaning of the stove too. :)

  6. This is my first time seeing Taro in mixed rice! I love it. The weather has been cold especially in the evening and I've been making mixed rice (we call it takikomi gohan). This sounds really yummy!

      We used to eat this Taro Rice at the food court/food stalls but nowadays it is getting costly per bowl. Well, it is always good to cook it at home. It must be coming to autumn now at your place and good to have steaming hot rice on the table!
