Add HALF of the rice noodles and allow to fry undisturbed for 1 minute. Sprinkle noodles with 1/2 tablespoon curry powder (or more to taste), and gently flip noodles with a wide spatula. Continue flipping noodles for 2 – 3 minutes, until noodles are beginning to crisp.

Step 5) Remove noodles from frying pan and toss with half of the scrambled eggs, stir-fried carrot mixture, and protein (optional).

Step 6) Repeat steps 4 and 5 with remaining rice noodles. Serve immediately.
