talk with friends and family but not while cooking,.;-)

Have you guys ever tried cooking while talking on phone
if not tried in the midst of cooking ever answered a call
or in other words cooked and talked at the same time
i did yesterday and this is what happened
forgot to add lentil to the Khichdi and the result u guys can imagine
had to reopen the pressure cooker to add the lentils and by then rice was done
so the rice was overdone just because i had to cook the lentils.
but then i had to add lentils because i was preparing khichdi
( hope hubby is not reading this , i was too embarrased to tell him )
so yesterdays lesson - never to talk on phone while cooking and if the call is important just turn off the flame and speak ,or i wont know what i am cooking and what i have added or not added while talking .
Coming back to todays post this one is simple meal,doesnt require much cooking,prepared this with leftover rice for tomorrows lunch,this one is bit spicy but i liked it ,we call this onion fried rice,reminds me of childhood.
Recipe Name Egg and Onion Fried Rice
Leftover rice one cup
onion one chopped
green chili one chopped
cumin seeds half tsp
salt as per taste
egg one
oil one tsp
garam masala powder half tsp
Heat oil in wok,once once oil is hot lower the flame
add cumin seeds and once it starts spluttering
add chopped onion and green chili
increase the flame ,onions should turn brown

lower the flame again and add rice,salt and garam masala
mix and remove from flame.
In non stick pan add few drops of oil and prepare fried egg
mix fried egg with the onion rice.

Serve warm,this dish doesnt need any side dish,i liked the taste of crispy onions with green chili.
