If you think your rice cooker is just for making white fluffy rice, think again!

One thing we love about rice cookers is that it has the best value for money than any other kitchen appliance. It’s so versatile that it’s become a staple in our kitchens. It’s not just a must for making rice, it can also cut cooking time in half when preparing complicated food spreads. You can do simple main dishes in a rice cooker and leave behind to cook while you tend to other things like making delicious side dishes and dips.

Here are four recipes you can make in your handy rice cooker.
