Dajiujia

Last updated by  at 2013-11-9

Dajiujia ( means to come to the emperor's rescue) is one of the most famous local flavors of Tengchong Yunnan, one of fried Erkuai. The way of cooking it is that: cut erkuai into pieces, add ham, egg, meat, carrot and tomato, deep-fry them in the pot to well-done. It's said that when Yongli emperor of the Ming dynasty went into exile to Tengchong, he was miserable from hunger. A kind farmer cooked a big plate of erkuai for him.

At that moment, Yongli emperor couldn't believe that there was so delicious food existing in the world. The aftertaste lingering on him, he sigh with deep emotion "it rescued me!" So Dajiujia became aother name for Tengchong erkuai and sliced erkuai, whose fame got around fast.
