Now, let me introduce you to the following Xinjiang Uygur Zhuafan (in Chinese literally meaning “Grabbed Rice“) – which is Rice cooked with fresh muttons, onions, carrots, vegetable oil & melted Sheep’s Fat. Raisins & almonds are also added for flavouring, & as its name suggests, one usually eats with hands, & this popular Xinjiang Cuisine is a MUST at Xinjiang Festivals & Wedding Banquets.
