For those who love to toss together a great fried rice recipe, or are simply craving for some Chinese food to serve at a meal, this one is a basic template that makes use of crunchy carrots and bell peppers to break the spicy hit of curry powder and a wee bit of chili blended in with the beaten eggs in this rice dish.
