  • Wok



  • In a wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and bell pepper and saute for 5 to 6 minutes until vegetables begin to soften.
  • Add peas, paprika, Sriracha and turmeric and cook for an additional minute, stirring the vegetables so they are coated in the spice.
  • Add the cooked rice to the wok and stir well so until rice becomes a warm yellow color. Add lemon juice, stir, and more oil if the rice still seems to dry. Taste, and add salt and pepper if desired.
