Turmeric Fried Rice

"This is a fairly easy recipe for fried rice, yet it tastes really good. Good recipe to impress your loved ones. This is my favorite recipe for fried rice, especially when I am in a hurry, and not really in an 'all-day-in-the-kitchen' cooking mood:) Note: This is not a chinese fried rice which is usually more moist and can be eaten by itself. This is more of an Indian, or Sri lankan fried rice that is usually dry and is eaten with curries. I thought I should explain since some of you might be expecting more of a 'chinese' kind of a fried rice :) "

    It was OK. Easy to make and looked good. We did however find it a tad bland, but-adding spices should be no problem to zing it up a bit. What we did not fancy was the egg. It sort of curdled up in the rice and just felt out of place. On the other hand the rice was moist and could easily be eaten on its own. I will try it again with more spices and without the egg. Thanks for posting.

    Made this tonight for our family, and would have given it 5 stars, but the amounts of onion and carrot could have been doubled for our tastes. My children loved it though and will be making this again. Easy to make and delicious!
