Caribbean Fried Rice
Fried rice in the Caribbean? Well, maybe. After all, Chinese immigrants were used for many years on the vast sugar plantations in the West Indies, and we know that they contributed much to the food culture we now think of as "Island cooking." But, even if you can't find it there, this dish will deliver a bit of island flavor to your table.
Heat the oil over medium heat and sauté the scallions and bell pepper until softened, about 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté just until aromatic, about 1 minute longer.
Add the beaten eggs and scramble, breaking up the large pieces. Keep frying beyond the usual scrambled egg stage until the concoction is quite dry, but try not to let the eggs start browning (a few brown spots are OK).
Add the turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and combine well with the egg mixture. Add the rice and toss until thoroughly combined; stir fry over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes.
