Vegan Curried Fried rice is one of my favorite easy weeknight one-pan meals, and it’s also the best way to use up any leftover rice and veggies in the fridge.

For stir-fried rice, to achieve the best result, you need at least a day-old cold rice. Because the rice dries out in the fridge and becomes crumbly which is what you need so your fried rice isn’t wet or mushy to better absorbing the flavors from the spices or sauces, also, easier to get that lightly charred flavor during stir-frying. But don’t worry, if you don’t have leftover rice, you can cook fresh rice, spread them evenly on a tray, and leave it in the fridge until it’s cold and dry. Freshly cooked rice also works well.

I’m also a tofu-lover, especially scrambled firm tofu. Because it mimics the scrambled egg you’d find in conventional fried rice. when you add curry powder into your fried rice, you will get a beautiful yellowish color that makes your tofu look exactly like scrambled eggs.

Notes

Note1: for stir-frying, you need oil with a high smoking point such as Vegetable oil, peanut oil, soybean oil…etc.
Note2: you need at least a day-old cold rice. If you don’t have leftover rice, you can cook fresh rice, spread them evenly on a tray, and leave it in the fridge until it’s cold and dry. Freshly cooked rice also works fine.
Note3: Pick a brand you like, spicy or mild is totally your choice!
Note4: Serve with fried shallot or chili oil! So Good!
