Quick-N-Easy Curried Rice

Yellow Flower

Being Indone­sian, rice is my sta­ple food. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, my Cana­di­an hus­band is not a big fan of rice. But he does like cur­ry. Solu­tion: cook him some cur­ried rice!

1 cup of rice, cooked
3 shal­lots or ¼ onion, minced
1 clove gar­lic, minced
1–2 tablespoon(s) cur­ry pow­der
1–2 egg(s)
Salt and pep­per
3 table­spoons veg­etable oil

Cook­ing instruc­tions:
1. Heat veg­etable oil in a wok. Use medi­um heat. Don’t have a wok? Try fry­ing pan, but it might get messy.
2. Put the minced shal­lots (or onion) and gar­lic into the wok and cook until soft.
3. Throw in the cur­ry pow­der and pep­per. Mix well.
4. Break the eggs into the wok. Scram­bled.
5. Throw in the cooked rice. Mix well.
6. Put some salt, mix well, and it’s ready to serve!

We start­ed eat­ing imme­di­ate­ly and soon our plates were emp­ty. Hence no pic­tures of the result in this entry. It was real­ly that good. :) The pic­ture of a false sun­flower above will have to do it. Hey, at least the colour of the flower is sim­i­lar to the colour of the cur­ried rice!

Oh, I for­got to write the last step. Turn off the stove!

  1. Rice is cheap, and as a stu­dent I have very lit­tle mon­ey so I tend to eat a lot of rice :) . We tend to have Bas­mati rice with Indi­an food, and then Ital­ian or Amer­i­can Long­grain with any­thing else. French Camar­gue rice as well, but it can be expen­sive and hard to get hold of.

    Saya juga lahir di Indone­sia.
    Cur­ried rice, hmmm some­thing I’ve nev­er thought of! I usu­al­ly just make the whole thing when I feel like cur­ry. This sounds much eas­i­er.

  3. Fir­da, thanks for shar­ing your web knowl­edge to peo­ple like me. Giv­en the time, I’m going to learn more from your site. P.S. I got me a wannabe award… thanks!

  4. Hel­lo,
    I have a com­ment total­ly unre­lat­ed to cur­ried rice, though it sounds yum­my. Using your blog tem­plate gen­er­a­tor I made a Blog­ger tem­plate that I *love* — prob­lem is, it looks great on my iBook but real­ly messed up on all PCs! (by messed up I mean, the col­ors are off, and the body is strange­ly below the side­bar) This has been con­firmed by oth­er peo­ple with Macs and PCs. Any idea why this is hap­pen­ing, and what I can do to fix it?
    Thank you so much for your help. And thanks for let­ting peo­ple use your rockin tem­plate gen­er­a­tor!
