Recipe Ingredients for Curried Fried Rice

3 tbsp vegetable oil
4 large eggs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp curry paste
2 medium tomatoes, diced
1/4 lb fresh spinach
4 cups brown rice, cooked
1 1/2 cups frozen green peas
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp lime juice
1 pkg extra firm tofu

Recipe Directions for Curried Fried Rice

  1. Prepare all of the ingredients and have them within easy reach before beginning to stir-fry. In a large skillet or a wok, heat 1 tbsp oil, add the beaten eggs, and cook on moderately high heat. When the edges of teh eggs begin to set, lift them with a spatula and tilt the pan to allow the uncooked eggs to run under, onto the hot skillet. After 2 or 3 minutes, when the bottom is set, flip the omelet over. You may need to cut it into sections to flip it. As soon as the omelet is well cooked, transfer it from the skillet to a plate. Cut it into long 1/2-inch wide strips and set aside.

  2. Wipe out the skillet and heat 2 tbsp of oil on medium heat. Add the garlic and curry paste; cook for one minute, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.

  3. Add the tomatoes and spinach. Stir-fry on high heat until the spinach just wilts. Add the rice and peas and cook until heated through. Stir in the egg strips, soy sauce, and lime juice.

  4. If you're adding tofu, add it at the end, as well, either fresh or lightly fried.
