Hokkien Stir-fried White Rice Cake 福建炒白粿

Beside Hokkien Mee, this stir-fried white rice cake also quite popular in "Tai Chow" hawker stalls in Selangor and KL. Hokkien people call this as "Char Pei Ker" . "Pei Ker" refer to white rice cake, and "Char" is stir fried.
This white rice cake itself is plain and no taste, so we have to add other ingredients like meat and vegetable and seasonings to make it tasty. We love the QQ texture of this white rice cake after cooked.
