I just recently tried this Japanese treasure – Omurice and can’t stop thinking about it. Omurice is a Japanese recipe, savoury chicken ketchup fried rice wrapped in an egg.
- half onion
- 1 skinless chicken thighs
- 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup of frozen mixed vegetables
- salt to taste
- black pepper
- 1 tsp milk
- 1/4 cup grated cheese
- 1½ cups cooked Japanese short-grain rice
- 1 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- Firstly, chop the onion finely and cut the chicken into 1 cm pieces.
- Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan and sauté the onion (sweat the onion, but do not fry them) until softened. Add the chicken and cook until it is no longer pink.
- Then add the mixed vegetables and season it with salt and pepper.
- Add the rice into a pan and break into small pieces.
- Pour ketchup and soy sauce and mix everything with a spatula.
- Transfer the rice mixture to a plate and wash the pan.
- Whisk 1 egg and 1 tbsp of milk in a small bowl. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in the pan over medium-high heat, evenly spread the oil you can do it with the brush.
- Pour the egg mixture into the hot pan and cover the bottom of the pan.
- Lower the heat when the bottom of the egg has set (it still has to be soft on top). Put the grated cheese and fried rice on top of the egg. Use the spatula to fold both sides of omelette toward the middle to cover the fried rice.
- Slowly move the Omurice to the edge of your pan. Flip the pan and move the omurice to the plate. While it is still hot, cover the omurice with a paper towel and shape it into shape. Serve it with ketchup.
