Chahan (Japanese fried rice) 日式炒飯


The method of Japanese fried rice (Chahan) actually not much difference from Chinese fried rice, the only difference of this fried rice is using Japanese ingredients. I even made the Japanese roast pork Chashu (char siew) to cook with this fried rice. I would like to dedicate this post to Nami aka Just One Cookbook as the Chashu recipe and accessories in these pictures are related to her.
Love this cute chopstick holder from Nami !!

Sonia! What a wonderful surprise! Thanks so much for the kind mention and for trying the chashu recipe. When I make chashu for ramen, I usually make extra so the next day or so I can make chahan with chashu. It's so good! Happy that you liked the little gifts as well.
