Today, there is no one at my home. My mother has gone out of the city to visit her mother. And my father is off to office. Since it’s weekly holiday here, I don’t have school. Thank God I have computer with Internet connection, otherwise I would have had a real bad day. Even there is no TV at home so you understand how the situation is.
Anyway, when the clock struck 4PM, I felt hunger. Well, there was nothing to eat except some rice in the fridge. After a short time of search I discovered fortunately there was an egg in the fridge. Good. Fried egg is something I like to eat. In this post, I’ll show you how to fry an egg in case you don’t know and someday need to fry one. 😀
Warning: Follow the steps at your own risk. The author, which means me, 😉 will not be liable if you mess up anything. 😀
There are a few things without what you cannot fry an egg. They are usually the following ones:
- A top quality egg. 😉
- Vegetable oil.
- Access to kitchen. 😀
- A clean cup and a spoon.
- A frying pan.
- Onion and green chillies (depends on your taste).
- Red chillies (to accompany with rice 😀 ).
Basically, the first 5 ingredients are good to go. Make sure you have all of them and then continue to the cooking process.
How to Fry an Egg
Get the Egg
First of all, you have to search through your fridge for an egg. Usually, most fridges has a particular place where eggs are arranged up. That looks something like this:
Now that you have an egg! Congratulations! 🙂 Now, proceed.
Get a cup
This is necessary for kneading the egg. Look up for something like this:
Execute the Egg
This is the most difficult part of the process for newbie cookers. Most people fail to execute the egg in a proper way. As a result, nothing bad happens. 😉 I mean, execute it the way you like. But I think the corner of the sink is good for egg execution.
Fill up the cup
Once the egg is executed, extract the liquid material inside the egg into the cup. After the extraction, eggshell should be trashed and the inside view of the cup should be something like this:
You would require some added salt to make the fried egg tasty. Add some salt into the cup. You should add some onion and green chillies if you like. However, I usually don’t like fried egg with green chillies. I like onion, though. But who’s gonna cry for slicing onion? 😉
Egg blenders do this job pretty amazingly. However, you can get it done using a tea-spoon, too.
Make sure you blend the egg as good as possible because it decides how tasty egg will be once its fried.
Get ready to fry
This is a little risky part for newbie cookers. Find a well-sized frying pan and put it on the burners. Ignite the burner and wait a few moments until it gets hot. And then add your favorite vegetable oil. 😉 Note that oil that is not your favorite will also do the work same. So, you don’t have to worry about it.
At this point, you have wait a few minutes until the oil is hot and you see steam above the pan. Put the blended egg into the pan carefully. The hot oil may harm your skin if it falls on. Therefore, you must not hurry and do this carefully.
I know how to fry egg, but I’m not regular at frying egg. That’s why I couldn’t turn the egg into a good shape. However, as time passes by, you’ll notice a significant increase or swell at the pan. Do not worry; it won’t burst. 😀 😛
Final task: Eat
Prepare rice on your plate and put the fried egg onto it. You might like to add fried red chillies with it. Otherwise, there is nothing else you might like to add when presenting the egg with rice.
For your information, in case you don’t know, you can eat fried egg without rice, too. Or fried egg with bread or paratha tastes good as well. So, it’s completely your choice how you will eat the fried egg.
The total Process at a glance
I wouldn’t mind adding a video tutorial, but the fact is we use Internet at a terrible speed. It took more time to upload those pictures than how much time it took to actually fry the egg! So, now you understand it would take a whole day to upload a video clip if I recorded one.
Anyway, here’s the full recipe at a glance.
