Curry Fried Rice with gherkins

Fried rice is usually flavoured with soy sauce or salt.   Some even with ketchup.
Here is my version with 'odds and ends' like some pickled gherkins, some mince meat and curry powder.  The curry powder in this instance is not spicy as it's a european adapted mixture.  It has high percentage of kukurma and has hardly any bite of spicyness but it gives the rice a happy yellow tinge. Even  suitable for young children.  
It is simple yet addictive.

Fresh cooked rice is not recommended because it will be too sticky.
You may add more gherkin if you like crunchy mouthfuls.

You need :-

500 gm  a-day-old cooked rice
200 gm mince meat (pork and beef )
4-5 pickled ghurkin (cut into 1-2cm cubes)
1 or 2 large onions
1 heap tbsp curry powder
oil and salt

1. Peel and chop onions into small pieces.
2. Add 1 or 2 tbsp oil in a pan and fry onions at high heat till it starts to brown.

3. Add mince meat and continue to stir till meat is cooked.
4. Add rice and continue to stir-fry till rice starts to break up/soften.
5. Add ghurkin, frying for a little bit.
6. Add curry powder and continue to stir-fry till curry powder is well incorporated into the rice.
7. Add salt to taste.
8. Add some roasted cashews and fresh coriander before serving
