How to make Cha-han (Japanese fried rice)

August 20, 2018

Have you ever tried Japanese fried rice? In Japan, short grain sticky rice is more common so it is bit different to Chinese fried rice. Cha-han is normally served with Ramen in ramen restaurants. In Japanese Cha-han, char siu pork and egg is always added.

Try this cha-han recipe when you are cooking ramen! 


 Cha-Han For Two



  • 360g of rice (about 2 small bowls of rice). Short grain, long grain, use the one you prefer 
  • 2-3 spring onion
  • 2 eggs
  • Diced char siu pork (bacon is fine!)
  • 2 Chicken stock cubes
  • 2 tbsp of Japanese mayonnaise 

Mix rice with mayonnaise and eggs, so rice won't stick to the pan. 

Fry char siu (bacon), and add chicken stock cubes. Try smash cubes to small pieces. (If you cover cubes with rice, so it gets softer and easier) Mix all the ingredients and fry well.
