Dim Bhaja - Fried eggs

This dish generally finds its place on our table when the menu has some dish that hubby dislikes. Or during dinner times, when what I've cooked for lunch is left over, but nobody is enthusiastic to eat the same for dinner, and being the home maker you can't afford cooking something special at the cost of all those dishes sitting in the refrigertor unwanted. At times like that, this dish comes as a saviour. Me happy preparing it coz it can be prepared in a jiffy, the only effort that goes into this is that of chopping onions. Also when my folks know that Dim Bhaja is gonna do guest appearance, they are fine with any kinda main course. So this is like my trump card.

What you need:

2 Eggs
1 Onion, medium sized finely chopped
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Cumin powder (optional)
Salt to taste
11/2 tbsp Oil

How to prepare:

I have tried capturing the procedure with the pics below. Initially, heat oil in a pan. Add onions and saute till they turn light golden brown in colour. Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and cumin powder and mix well. Using a spatula, spread the onions evenly in the pan. Break the eggs on top of the onions as shown below. When the egg white at the bottom has boiled and has formed thin layer, invert half of it on top of the rest of the portion. Make sure while doing this the yolks are covered. Try to separate both peices as they are getiing cooked. Invert both the pieces again and cook till the yolk inside too has cooked well. I cook this whole dish on low flame to get good results. Depending on the width of the pan you can fry more number of eggs in it. Strain and remove the egg pieces from the pan. You can fry more eggs in the same oil.
