  11. Gingelly oil - 2 tsp


  1. In a another pan ,add little oil ,break the egg ,add little salt and  2-3 pinch of pepper powder.

  1. Gingelly oil , gives a nice flavour.You can use vegetable oil also.
  2. Sugar ensures the crunchiness of the vegetable.
  3. Dont overcook the eggs as it will turn rubbery ,when you feel the there is no moisture u can take it off.
  4. Left over rice is very good ,then the immediately cooked one.
  5. You can add 1 more egg if you want.
  6. Vegetables should be chopped finely.
