Tumeric Fried Rice by Nigerian Lazy Chef

Tumeric Fried Rice by Nigerian Lazy Chef

It was a successful or a sweet mistake if I may say so. I was trying to redo my recipe for my Nigerian fried rice when I realized I had no curry or green beans. At that point, I knew I had to use whatever I had. Fortunately, I found some Tumeric in my pantry and just went ahead and used it. I know what you may be thinking. like “who just goes in their pantry and finds turmeric?” Well, I had bought the Tumeric for our skin until I had to actually cook with it 🙂
