Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a highish heat. Pour in the beaten egg, swoosh it around the pan and leave it to set for a minute. Flip it over like a pancake and let it cook for a minute more on the otherside, then tip it out flat on to a plate.

  2. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan. Tip in the onion and sizzle for 3-4 minutes until it’s starting to brown, then stir in the garlic, curry powder and ketchup. Add the peas and cook for a minute or two until they start to defrost. Tip in the rice, cooked meat and a glass of water (100ml/31⁄2fl oz) and cook over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring as you go, until everything’s piping hot and the rice has taken on the colour of the curry powder.

  3. While your rice is frying, shred the omelette into long strips. Toss the omelette and soy sauce through the rice and cook for a moment more. Scoop the rice on to plates straight from the pan and serve with extra soy sauce for sprinkling over.

This is a really tasty dish to use up leftovers. I have cooked it several times to recipe and also with some easy variations. I added prawns instead of meat and it worked really well and if I am cooking rice with peas (Madhur Jaffrey recipe) I make extra as this dispenses with the need to add any more onions or peas to the recipe.

Great 'budget' meal. I had leftover goose in the freezer so used that - guess it would work with pretty much any meat or veg. Will definitely make again.

Oh this is a great meal for using up leftover meat and rice and making sure you get your veg quota. So healthy but still great. Probably should have put in the right amount of curry powder, but it was still lovely.

A cracking quick meal, i added 2 large eggs for the omelette with just 2 teaspoons of water added, this will make the omelette light. I also substituted the curry powder for 2 heaped teaspoon of Patak's rogan josh curry paste + 3 tbsp of ketchup.

I didn't have much chicken left so added a small bowl of cooked prawns this was delicious too.

My husband isn't keen on frozen peas, so I added mushrooms to the recipe instead.
