Today’s Bento/Lunch Box (12/32): Curry Rice and “Ebi-mayo” Bento!

The Missus was in a bit of a quandary this morning as she had plenty of steamed rice leftovers!
Not to worry, let’s make a Japanese-style curry out of it!

She first fried all kinds of vegetables cut small in olive oil, salt and pepper: red, yellow and green pimentos, baby corn, and even sliced black olives and French cornichons and let it cool down a little.
During that time she re-heated the rice in its pot and added plenty of curry powder mixture.
Once the rice had been properly been cooked/fried with its spices she added the fried vegetables and mixed the lot!

She put the curry rice aside and prepared the “ebi-mayo”. “Ebi” stands for (large) shrimps and “mayo” stands for mayonnaise.
Over a low fire she first fried the shrimps in a non-stick pan with olive oil and a little salt and pepper. When the shrimps were half-cooked she added mayonnaise and kept stirring the whole until it was ready.
She filled the main box with the curry rice and topped it with the shrimps and some lemon cuts for extra taste.

She combined vegetables and fruit in the side box: baby leaves and ice-plant, cheese, mango and blueberries!

Great combination and plenty of nutrients sorely needed during this very hot summer!
And delicious!
