Thanks Ann for your prompt reply! Okie, i shall start with abit of tumeric powder first to test if pass their taste palate. However, like yourself, i will put more for mine portion 🙂
Thanks for the tip! I almost gonna buy those bottle ones in supermarket.
Will update you when i fried this. Many thanks again!
Hearty Bakes ~ Thank you! Turmeric is not spicy, it has a nice fragrant flavor. Anyway I'm not sure your kids like it or not.
Every time when I fry this rice, I will usually dish up some portion for the kids and add turmeric powder to the balance fried rice for the adults (I add more than 1/2 tbsp). Let the kids try some first so you'll know whether you want to
cook this the 2nd time.
Oh one more thing…buy the small packet from wet market Indian stall is much fresher than those bottle packing.
Ann, your fried rice looks flavorful! I want to try this fried rice for my children. In any case, is tumeric powder spicy?
Thanks Mary. I'm sure you'll love this fried rice.
