More uses for left over cooked rice

Following on from my post yesterday, there was more left over rice, and so more ideas for its use.
To take to The Ancient One for Sunday lunch - 

½ cup self raising flour​
3 eggs​
1 chopped onion
1 ½ cups milk​
1 cup grated cheese​
1 cup cold cooked rice
2 tblspns chopped parsley
1 tblspn oil​
Pepper & salt​ to taste
2 rashers bacon 
capsicum​, peas, beans, tomatoes​, courgettes, asparagus -about a cup in total of any combination of vegetable

Beat eggs and milk, add cheese, onion, rice, oil and about a cup of vegetables.  Fold in flour.  Chop bacon and sprinkle on top.  Bake ¾ hour at 180°.
I used sliced tomato instead of the bacon.

And for Saturday dinner, I shall treat myself to

½ Onion
1 clove garlic 
knob of butter
1 teaspoon curry paste 
2 cups cooked rice 
200g tin of fish
2 hardboiled eggs
coriander leaves

Slice the onion, crush the garlic and fry them in the butter with the curry paste.  Add the rice, and the drained fish which has been broken up with a fork, and heat through.  Add the quartered eggs, coriander and salt to taste and enjoy!
