Notes:

  1. If you want it to be more liquid, like a soup, keep the lid on till the end. Otherwise remove the lid the for the last 5 minutes and turn up the temperature. Make sure to stir it while it’s still cooking.
  2. You can also use half an onion. I didn’t use it this time because I didn’t have any 😀
