FRIED ONION RICE QUICK MEAL RECIPE
The combination of the three ingredients - rice, eggs and fried onions - is a quick meal when in a hurry or when your kitchen is running short of ingredients. This is an unadorned dish but if you happen to have Italian sauces handy, it would give the meal a semblance of completeness.
- ½ cup rice
- 3-4 medium sized onions (thinly sliced)
- 1 egg (fried, sunny side up)
- oIl (for deep frying)
- salt to taste
- Italian sauces (handy ones, of your choice)
Wash rice and boil it in 2 cups of water, with salt to taste.
Take a small frying pan with a teaspoon of oil, break an egg into it and fry it sunny side up. Wait a couple of minutes before removing the fried egg. Ensure that the underside is crisp before using a silicone spatula to remove the fried egg from the frying pan. (If you remove the fried egg soon, it runs the risk of breaking midway).
Next, slice the onions and use the same pan for frying them. Use enough oil to dunk the onions to enable deep-frying. Fry till a golden brown, and crisp. Remove when done, and place the onions on an absorbent tissue.
Take a serving of rice onto a ceramic dish, arrange the deep-fried onions on one side of the rice heap and drape the fried egg on the other side.
