Quick and easy Curry Shrimp Fried Rice with egg and mixed vegetables. This fried rice is so tasty and takes only 15 minutes to prepare.
Hi everyone! It’s me, Jon. I know it has been a while but I have been busy with my final exams and all. The good thing is now I get to stay home for 3 weeks to enjoy the holidays before going back to campus for my final semester…woohoo! It truly is a wonderful time of the year with my little brother home as well and Dad taking time off from work.
Christmas came and went. We had a lovely celebration with some friends coming over mid week. Even though it is really, really cold outside, it is warm and fuzzy inside with lots of good food and holiday cheer. Nobody wanted to be outside anyway and this cold front is supposed to continue until the end of next week…brrr!
Putting the Curry Powder to Good Use
So, I got home a week earlier than my brother and had the opportunity to work on the Curry Shrimp Fried Rice which I was telling Mom about. She had recently given me a small jar of curry powder to take back to campus for me to cook this Chicken Curry Rice which I enjoy very much. I used some of that curry powder for a fried rice one day and really like the outcome. Mom likes it and I hope you will too. 😉
The best part of this Curry Shrimp Fried Rice is that it is really easy to prepare. There is no need to blend any spices. Simply sprinkled a tablespoon of curry powder onto the shrimps while they are cooking in the pan. One tablespoon of curry powder is sufficient to coat and flavor 2 cups of cooked rice. Very easy and quite tasty!
