Cooking rice in a Yunnan steam pot

LilRedHen | Dec 7, 202001:37 PM     1

I have just bought one of these beautiful steam pots, but the recipe book that came with it is entirely written in Chinese. Generally speaking, I don't think I will have a problem finding recipes that will work in it, except for that of cooking rice only. Since steam is condensed inside the pot during the cook time, I suppose that the proportion of rice to water is different from that of the usual saucepan or rice cooker recipe. Do you have a rice recipe which would work in this steam pot, including the right length of time to cook it? Thank you!
