‘Chikuwa’ is a tube-shape Japanese fishcake made from Surimi (fish paste). As Chikuwa is much cheaper than chicken or meat, my mother often used it for many dishes. This fried rice is one of them. I remember there were Chikuwa and Cabbage in it. She seasoned it simply and I loved it.
2 Eggs *lightly whisked
1 tablespoon Oil
2 Cabbage Leaves *cut into small pieces
2 Spring Onion *finely chopped
50g Chikuwa *sliced
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
1/4 teaspoon Dashi Powder
2 servings Cooked Rice *about 360g, warmed
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
