Make It Awesome

Our Content Lead, Shalvi is all about super easy (almost) one-pot recipes, and this one uses the most basic stuff from your kitchen. Rice, spinach and eggs! 

Cooking Time: 20 mins; Prep Time: 15 minutes. 

What You Need:

Rice: 1 cup; cooked 

Spinach: 250gms; chopped 

Onions- 2-3 medium-sized; sliced

Garlic: 8-10 cloves; chopped 

Olive oil- 2tbsp 

Salt & Pepper

Chilli Flakes & Oregano- thank you, Dominos 

Fresh cream

Cheese- grated

Eggs- 2

Butter- as per requirement

Steps:

1. Wash the rice thoroughly and cook it (steamed rice is better than pressure cooked rice, FYI). If you have leftover rice, you're sorted. 

2. Put oil in a wok, add the chopped garlic and then switch on the gas stove. Keep it on low (this helps infuse the flavour of garlic in the oil). Once the garlic starts changing colour, add the sliced onion. 

3. When translucent, add the spinach and let it cook a bit. 

4. The and add a little salt & lots of pepper (remember, there's some cheese to be added towards the end and that's salty too).  Sprinkle some chilli flakes and a little oregano. 

5. When slightly cooked, add the rice. Make sure you mix it well. 

6. Add in a little fresh cream to this along with grated cheese and mix it all further (don't add too much). 

7. Once you have a sticky mix, move it all into a glass bowl (which you've laced with a little butter on the base & all sides). 

8. Make two depressions on either side and break open an egg in each (try to keep the yolk intact). 

`9. Sprinkle it with a little salt & pepper, and put it in the microwave. Let it cook for 3 minutes. 

10. If the egg is properly cooked, then take it out. Else cook for an additional 3 minutes (I don't like a very runny yolk in this dish).   

Pro Tip

Once ready, you can serve it as is or pair it with a stir fry. You can have this dish for lunch or dinner, & though the steps are many, you will be done in 35 minutes at the most. Enjoy!
