fried onion and egg

I serve it thick in a small pan. The edges are still sizzling and I scoop it with a spoon. The cooked onion gives natural sweetness and the egg gives savory taste. The onion is soft but still a bit crunchy which makes the texture interesting.

Fried onion and egg is one of the most common dishes I have had since I was a kid. I was barely picky but somehow I didn't like it. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it, so I just thought to myself, "Why does mom never cook eggroll?" My dad and grandmother enjoyed it, but always said, "Why didn't you put more onion?" And I hated hearing it every time. The sweet taste from onion was a bit weird, too.

Has my taste changed, or am I missing the childhood? Now it's on my table quite frequently. I cook it a lot because it's easy to cook and the nutrition is well balanced. Chopping onions more than I initially thought I'd chop, I become my mom in those days for a second. "Why didn't you put more onions?" These words will always be followed when cooking this dish.

Heat your small size pan(diameter 20cm) over medium-high heat. When it's heated, add enough amount of oil and slowly swirl it around the edge of the pan. Lower the heat to low-medium.
Pour the mix and spread it evenly.
When the edge becomes brown and a little firm, flip it. At this point, except for the edge, the inside part is still a bit watery.
After flipping, wait and lift the edge a bit to check the bottom. If it looks brown, turn off the heat and serve it in the pan. The onion will become softer by the remaining heat from the pan.
