Yam Fried Rice ~ 芋头粒炒饭



This Yam Fried Rice dish seems to be appearing in the menu of some restaurants lately, and I've savoured two versions from two different restaurants.   Here, I'm sharing with you my version of Yam fried rice, prepared with leftover cooked brown rice.  If you don't have leftover cooked rice, you can still use freshly cooked rice but air the rice to remove moisture and refrigerate it for a few hours before cooking.  This way your fried rice won't become clumpy or mushy.





A very satisfying and delicious bowl of Yam Fried Rice, which I must admit is truly 'Yum'!

    • 1 cup brown rice (rice cup)

    Method
    1. Cook the rice in the rice cooker, set aside for a few hours.  (I used leftover cooked rice).
