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!

    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.

    Apa kabar!

    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.

    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!
