Turmeric Fried Rice

I woke up at 3:00 in the morning to prepare our food before going to work.  Before cooking the rice, I usually check how much was left the night before to estimate how much will I cook.  Luckily, there were lots of left over rice from last night so I decided to cook Turmeric Fried Rice.

I love the taste of turmeric.  The vibrant yellow color it gives to the rice makes the rice looks more appetizing.  I usually eat this with chopped scrambled egg and caramelized onion.  What a great way to start the day!

2 tsp                         Olive Oil
1 tsp                         Turmeric Powder
3 c                            Left Over Rice
Salt to taste
Chopped scrambled egg for garnish
Caramelized Onion for garnish

1.  Heat oil in a frying pan.
2.  Add the turmeric powder and stir.
3.  Add left over rice and mix until all the rice are coated with the turmeric-oil mixture.
4.  Add salt to taste.
5.  Garnished with chopped scrambled egg and caramelized onion.

This fried rice has just right hint of turmeric, not too overwhelming, with a subtle sweetness from caramelized onion.

Love curry?  Substitute 1 tsp of Turmeric Powder with 1 tsp of Curry Powder.  I'll bet it's much more flavorful.
