How do you like your eggs fried? Sometimes I like mine well beaten with thinly sliced green onions and tomatoes. At times I just like them beaten and fried until they are fully cooked. There are times when I like it cracked directly into the pan and cooked gently on low heat. But my favourite way to have them is fried crispy at the bottom with the yolks still a little runny. Then, I pepper it with tomato ketchup, smear the ketchup over the eggs and dig in! Yum!
- Add enough oil to karahi or wok to form a little pool at the bottom. If using a small frying pan, add 1/4 cup of oil (not to worry, the eggs cook up really quick and barely absorbs any oil).
- Heat the oil in pan until very hot but not smoking; meanwhile, crack the eggs into a bowl.
- Pour the eggs into the oil (watch out, it might spit a little); let fry until the edges start to crisp; base the top of the eggs with some of the oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Remove eggs with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels then serve immediately.
