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'!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
