Egg Rice - Indian Style

Egg Rice-One quick fix rice dish which I prepare weekly once.There has never been a single grain left in the vessel, whenever I have prepared this dish ;).I guess every household who intakes egg, has an egg rice recipe,here I am sharing mine.

Ingredients
5 Large Eggs.(US Standard Egg size)
1 1/2 cups of White Basmathi Rice.Used the electric rice cooker cup twice which has 3/4 cup capacity
1 Big onion finely chopped.
2 Green Chillies cut lengthwise.
1 tsp mustard seed
2 tsp split Channa Dhal.
1 tbsp of ginger garlic paste
1tsp of red chilli powder
1 tsp Meat Masala(Garam masala can also be susbstited,but I prefer MM ;) )
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder.
fistful of curry leaves.
Oil(as needed).
Salt(as needed)
Finely chopped coriander leaves or green onion stalk for garnishing.

Method
1.Cook the rice,grains separated.Let it cool.Keep it aside.Cooking method given below.
2.In a wider pan,add oil and once its hot add the mustard seeds and channa dhal,once the mustard splutters,add the onion,green chillies and curry leaves,saute until the onion turns translucent at medium flame.
3.Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for few seconds,reduce the flame to low.
4.Break open the eggs,add all the eggs at a time to the onion,scramble(Increasing the flame will cook the egg very soon and we dont want that to happen)
5.Add the turmeric,Red Chilli powder,Meat Masala to the wet egg mixture still on low heat.Continue to stir,When the eggs are 3/4th cooked,add the cooked rice along with the salt,Mix well with the egg,but take care not to break the rice grains.Cooking at low heat,none of the egg pieces will be big,everything will be very small,which is better for this rice.

6.Finally add the chopped coriander leaves or the green onion stalk and stir once.
7.Serve it hot.

For Perfectly Cooked Rice(For Basmathi Rice)

Foolproof Method/Microwave Method

Wash and Drain the rice.In a microwave safe bowl,Add 2 cups of water to one cup of rice and cook for 20 minutes.

This has never gone wrong,Each and every time I need separate grains of rice for pulav or any rice varieties,I have been following only this for many years.

Electric Rice Cooker Method

Cook Rice along with water at 1 :2 ratio.This also comes perfect,but I feel that the lower portion of rice sticks to the vessel.
