  • Crack the eggs into the leftover rice. Season with some salt and pepper.Use a fork and mix the rice and eggs around until well combine.
  • Heat some oil in a pan. Over the low flame, snip the kaffir leaves into the oil. When the leaves appear to be crispy, spoon them out from the oil and spread them out and rest on a kitchen towel.
  • Add in the rice-egg mixture into the same pan over medium flame. Use a spatula and check if the side (facing the pan) is looking like an "omelette" texture (golden brown).
  • When the omelette texture is achieved, flip the mixture to cook the other side. As it cooks, start breaking the mixture with a spatula to resemble loose rice grains.
  • Add in the red curry paste and mixed vegetables and stir to combine. The fried is ready when the mixed vegetable is heated through.
  • Sprinkle crispy kaffir leaves over fried rice before serving.
