As I am stumbling at work and worrying about the challenge, I managed to pull this off this morning. It is very quick to prepare and it looks nice, if you are having nice lunch gathering with your girlfriends, this would be perfect.
I love fried rice. I never get bored of it. I know it is lame, but one of the best Indonesian street dishes is fried rice. They are cooked with margarine (really), laden with sweet soy sauce, generous spices of garlic, shallots and lots of chilies, served with a bit of chicken bits here and there and some crackers and pickled shallots and chilies. But homemade fried rice is really the best. My favorite fried rice is the ones rich with spices and chilies. The fancy bits such as meat of all sorts are nice, but the rice and spice are all I want in a good serving of fried rice.
There is this restaurant that served curry fried rice wrapped in a piece of omelette, shaped like an envelope. It is a very popular restaurant and that fried rice is one of the best seller dish.
I was using our pre-made curry paste for the fried rice. Any instant curry paste can be used. A lot of other ingredients can be added, chicken, lamb, beef, prawn, deep-fried potato cubes, peas. Or even vegetarian version. I was very tempted to throw in some raisins and cashews to create a briyani look-alike. Maybe next time.
