To serve (hot or cold) per person: Put some of the rice mixture in a bowl, top with four pieces of hard-boiled egg and garnish with chilli & parsley.
*Curry paste - use whichever type of paste that you prefer. I use a tikka masala paste. Rogan josh or korma curry paste would also work well in this dish.
*Yellow split peas - soak and cook dried, yellow split peas as per the packet instructions. An alternative would be to use (cooked) tinned lentils that have been drained.
