Yang Zhou Fried Rice
Happy TGIF! Today we feature one of the most popular fried rice, Yangzhou Fried Rice. You can literally find it at almost any ZiChar place in Singapore!
As the name suggests, it’s a dish which originated from the City of YangZhou in the Jiangsu Province. Over the years, YangZhou Fried Rice has evolved into many variations and you might ask what is the authentic version?
The essence of an authentic plate of YangZhou Fried Rice lies in the ingredients used. The key ingredients are XuanWei ham, shrimps, eggs, mushrooms, peas as well as meat; either pork or chicken 🙂 In our video, we were unable to source for XuanWei ham 🙁 Hence, we used the closest substitute, JinHua ham, which can be found in ShengSiong Supermarket!
