 Ingredients:
1.Cooked rice         -         2 cups
2.Eggs                    -          5
3.Onion                  -           1 big (chopped)
4.Toamto                -           1/2 (chopped)
5.Green chillies      -            2
6.Ginger garlic paste-          1/2 tsp
7.Curry powder      -            1 tsp
8.Turmeri powder  -             1/4 tsp
9.Curry leaves        -             hand full
10.Cilantro              -            chopped
11.Oil                      -            3 tbsp
12.Fennel seeds       -            1/4 tsp
13.Salt                      -             1/2 tsp or as reequired
14.Cilantro               -             for garnishing
 
 
Method:
* Cook rice with a spoon of oil and cool it on a plate.This avoids the rice from sticking together.
* Take  a pan,add oil and splutter with fennel seeds and curry leaves.
* Add chopped onion,green chillies and sprinkle some salt.Add ginger garlic paste and saute it.
* When the ginger garlic paste is sauteed well,add turmeric powder,chilli powder and combine well.
 

* When the raw smell is eliminated,add tomato and cook it.
* Once the mixture attains semi-gravy consistancy,break the eggs .Don't disturb them untill they are cooked.If not we will not be able to get good pieces of eggs.Once the eggs are cooked,slightly mix them.
* Now add the cooked rice and give it a toss.Adjust salt to taste.Garnish with cilantro.


Notes:
* Adding oil while cooking the rice makes it non sticky.Make sure the rice is cooled well,if not there are chances for the rice to get collapsed.
* While adding eggs,don't disturb them for 2 to 3 minutes,if not eggs will be scrambled into tiny bits.
* Spice level can be altered according to your taste.
* Tomato should be added very little,if not,it would make the gravy watery.
