Spicy Onion Rice

Spicy onion rice is a simple and easy dish made in just few minutes if you have the rice ready. I had some rice left over from my dinner last night. I didn't have much time to cook any curry for myself with the busy schedule I had today. Then I remembered my maid in India telling me about this simple and tasty dish which she makes very often. I loved this spicy onion rice she made for me 1 day. This dish is such a time saver and also a great dish to make when you have lot of left over white rice. 

This recipe goes to week 4 day 3 of Blogging Marathon 109 under the theme " Rice Dishes ".

That is surely a beautifully made dish, with the fried onions on top. I would just need some raita and pickle to go with it...
