Since Annie's favorite spot has some great clay pot dishes I decided to try and create a couple of recipes. It is an interesting technique and when done properly the rice has a crunchy flavor on the bottom. It is her comfort food and its darn tasty. Tonight I did a lamb rib version along with a couple of other dishes. Still not quite right but I was afraid to fire the clay pot directly on the stove top. But after talking with some people it seems these clay pots should be safe directly over a gas flame.
