What do you usually do with left-over rice? Perhaps many of us will use it for a bowl of fried rice. No doubt, as recommended by top chef from Chinese restaurants, overnight rice is best use for fried rice instead of the freshly cooked rice as they are less sticky and more chewy in terms of texture.

Instead of the common fried rice, I am making my very own version of cheesy baked rice from the overnight left-over rice. It turned out to be absolutely good with my secret ingredient, the hard boiled egg. Little did I know, cheese and hard boiled egg, especially the yolk is a perfect match. Paired together, they tasted like the creamy salted-egg yolk. For those who love salted egg yolks as I do, this is the recipe you should not miss.

  • a bowl of left-over rice
  • a hard boiled egg (cut into small chunks)
  • shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 100 grams of turkey ham
  • 3 chicken nuggets (cut into small cubes)
  • 2 tbsp of instant curry sauce 

Instructions: In a big bowl, add in the rice, curry sauce, turkey ham stripes, chicken nuggets and mix well. Transfer the rice mixture into oven-friendly baking tray. Top off with the hard boiled egg chunks, follow by a layer of generous shredded Mozzarella cheese. Pop into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes (at 180°C heat) until the cheese melted and turned golden brown and crusty.

Serve the rice with some finely sliced cucumber. Mmm ... mmm... it tastes sooooo good!
