Units Scale
  • 3 cups day-old cooked rice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • Parsley, for garnish


1. Preheat a large frying pan over medium heat. Pour in the olive oil. Add the onion, garlic, and frozen vegetables. Saute the veggies until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

2. Add the curry powder, salt, and pepper and stir until the vegetables are evenly coated.

3. Push the vegetables over to one side of the pan. Pour the lightly beaten eggs onto the other side. Using a spatula, gently stir the eggs until they are cooked through.

4. Once the eggs are cooked, mix them in with the vegetables. 

5. Add the rice and soy sauce to the pan and stir until combined and heated through.

6. Stir in the green onions and remove from heat.

7. Taste the fried rice, and add more salt and pepper if desired.

8. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.



1. Make sure you use day-old cooked rice. Day-old rice will give the fried rice a firmer texture than fresh rice, resulting in a soggy, mushy texture.

2. Fresh vegetables, instead of frozen, can be used. Cooking times will need to be adjusted accordingly.
