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.

Servings 2 persons


  • 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.
