This gluten free, “fried rice” is the perfect kitchen sink recipe. In all my years of cooking I’ve never made a dish this easy and delish in under 20 minutes. Add whatever vegetables you have on hand, the Dakar Curry seasoning has a perfect blend of sweet and savory for any mix. Crack those yolk over the serving platter and enjoy.


Serves 4 people
    • pouch Dakar Curry fonio pilaf, cooked according to package and cooled
    • tablespoons olive oil
    • large yellow onion, diced
    • red bell pepper, stemmed, cored, and roughly chopped
    • carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
    • 1 ½  cups peas (defrost if frozen)
    • eggs lightly beaten + 2 fried
    • Salt and pepper


      • 01 .  

        Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet (or wok if you have one), on medium-high heat. Once hot, add onion, pepper, and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes.

      • 02 .  

        Add the defrosted peas to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes.

      • 03 .  

        Once vegetables have started to brown, add in remaining olive oil and cooked fonio to skillet, and mix well to incorporate and heat through, about 1 minute.

      • 04 .  

        Make a well in the middle of your pan and add 3 eggs, scramble and fold into fonio mixture. Transfer fried fonio to a serving platter and season with salt and pepper.

      • 05 .  

        Fry two eggs in a small nonstick pan over medium heat, top off your fonio fried rice and enjoy!
