チャンプルー[ Chanpuru ]Okinawan Stir fry
Chanpuru (Okinawan: チャンプルー Chanpuruu) is an Okinawan stir fry dish. It is considered the representative dish of Okinawan cuisine. Chanpuru generally consists of tofu combined with some kind of vegetable, meat, or fish. Luncheon meat (such as Spam or Danish Tulip), egg, moyashi (bean sprouts) and goya (bitter melon) are some other common ingredients. Spam is not typically used in mainland Japan; but it is more common in Okinawa due primarily to the historical influence of its introduction by the US Navy. Chanpuru is Okinawan for "something mixed" and the word is sometimes used to refer to the culture of Okinawa, as it can be seen as a mixture of traditional Ryūkyū, Chinese, Japanese, Southeast Asian and North American culture. The term originates from the Malay or Indonesian word campur (pronounced "cham-poor"), meaning "mix".
