Stir-fry Shanghai Rice Cake


I like to bite into these chewy rice cakes and I never fail to order this whenever I dine in a Shanghai/Szechuan restaurant.  As I managed to get this from the Asian Grocers on my last trip I didn't hesitate to whip this simple yet delicious stir-fry!  Incidentally, these frozen rice cakes are also available in Aeon supermarkets.

      1. It's very easy to prepare but need to add a fair bit of water as I find the cakes very absorbent.
