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 !!
Few months back, Nami and I played gift exchanged.
She gave me so many things, accessories for photo taking and Japanese ingredients.
Thank you so much Nami ! sorry for my late mentioned.
