About this recipe:
Difficulty: 2
Comments: Although this is not difficult to make, great care needs to be taken with frying and with adding ingredients to hot food in a pan. The pan needs to be taken from the heat, and the ingredients added preferably using a wooden or plastic spoon, not just dropped in, because the splashes will burn!
Preparation Time: 5 mins
