I used roast pork (bought from the Chinese roast meat stall) as the main protein for the fried rice. You can use other protein such as chicken, tofu or prawn if you don’t eat pork.

  1. Good use of egg whites and egg yolks in two different dishes …both so delicious! The roast pork must have given the fried rice lots of flavor too! Yummy!

  2. So yummy! I first thought you used turmeric to make golden rice…love the idea of using yolks here..next time when I have some spare yolks, definitely try this!
