Re-inventing Leftovers- Peppery Egg Fried Rice...Indian-Chinese?

Not much inspiration, with special dinners looming ahead tomorrow and on Friday... this was an easy way out! Reminders that Saturday was Guruvayur Ekadashi and a 'no-rice' day, prompted this mix of leftovers: cooked and uncooked!

Cooked Sona Masoori Rice- 2cups
Capsicum- 1 small, sliced thin
Spring onions- 1/4 cup finely chopped
Green Chillies, non-spicy cayenne-1
Finely minced garlic-1tsp
Ground Black Pepper Powder- 3/4 tsp or more
Soy Sauce-1 tsp
Tomato Paste-1tsp
Chopped coriander for granish
A dash of lime juice
Heat about a tablespoon or vegetable oil, fry the onions, green chillies and capsicum on high heat for a few minutes.
Turn down the heat, add garlic and saute.
Turn up heat again and add tomato paste and soy sauce. 
Add the Black Pepper Powder. Saute for a  couple of minutes and turn the heat to medium.
Add the egg to the mix and gently mix it in.
Mix the rice  thoroughly and stir fry it until the egg is well coated and the rice is cooked through.
Add the chopped coriander and a dash of lime juice.
