Although the recipe is very good, surely you would like to stand out even more, right? I'll leave you next 3 TIPS very useful to make a difference in your Chaufa Rice

Tips and tricks

  • It is very difficult for the Chaufa Rice to come out the same as a Chifa, remember that they use a wok pan to cook, so if there is any possibility of having a wok at home, it is 100% recommended to make this delicious dish.
  • Be very careful with the salt because the soy sauce already comes with salt and you could go overboard and nobody likes very salty dishes.
  • Cook only what you are going to eat and if you have leftovers, store the ingredients separately. If you keep the Chaufa Rice for a long time it can be spoiled by the acid of the silao.

Additional information

In the mid-nineteenth century (approximately 1848) a Chinese community arrived in Peru important in number. This event gave way to a meeting between totally different cultures, but rich at the same time in the culinary field. They brought with them various grains and seeds such as kion or ginger, essential products in traditional Chinese food.

In the middle of the 19th century, a phrase would begin to sound alluding to the act of eating "Sec Fan", which would become "Shic Fan" because it was difficult to pronounce. Then, it would change to «Chi Fan» and finally stay in Chi Fa which translates into “Come eat rice” .

With the passage of time, they left the farm work and many of them opened shops, small businesses and also entered the food business, proposing different recipes, from which the currently known Chinese-Peruvian fusion was born. They introduced a different way of cooking and therefore of eating.
