Curried fried rice

With my nose in a vegetarian Thai recipe book and my hands in our almost empty veg box, this was the result.

2 leeks, trimmed and cut into thin slices
2-4 garlic cloves
3 tbsp oil
cooked rice for 2 (1 cup uncooked), fragrant Thai, jasmine or basmati would be best
2-4 tsp curry powder
1 tsp grated palm sugar
3-4 tbsp soy sauce
dash of pepper
3 tbsp desiccated coconut

Heat oil in non-stick pan or wok. Fry the leeks and garlic until leeks start to soften/brown. Add rice and curry powder, fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the rest of ingredients and stir till heated through.
If you´re feeling fancy, dry roast the coconut until slightly browned and sprinkle over rice before serving.
Decorate servings with rings of spring onion and thin slices of cucumber. Though I have to say that I´m not a great food decorator unless it is cupcakes…
