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. :) Sometimes I also vacuum seal the rice that is left over, you can find best vacuum sealers from here. 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!
    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.

    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!
