How to DIY Hotpot at home

  • Prepare the broth, it can be bone or fish and put spices like herbs, garlic, spring onions for flavor and let it simmer. I did notice that there are ready made hotpot broth in some supermarket, will research for the place in another time. You can also add spices if you want it hot.
  • Prepare your ingredients. It your choice, get those meat (thinly slice beef), meatballs, tofu, eggs, dumplings, veggies, seafood, noodles, the list is actually endless, it’s your hotpot, it’s your choice
