The source of this fried rice recipe comes from a cookbook, A Treasury of Great Recipes, written by Mary and Vincent Price. This recipe was brought from Indonesia to Holland where it became such a favorite that it is now a traditional Dutch dish. There are many variations, but in general the rice, onions and meat are fried together with spices to make a good, highly seasoned dish. Indonesian spices and condiments aren't always easy to come by, but we like this rice with curry powder and soy sauce, instead of the hotter native spices. That was what Mary and Vincent Price said, but I like to add to the crushed red chili peppers.
Put the fried rice on a heated platter. Place the strips of omelet across the top, and surround with slices of tomato.
