Have been watching the Korean drama “Rooftop Prince” and the first few episodes showed them eating “Omurice” …. it looks so good to me and so I was tempted to try it. What to do next? ….. It’s Professor Google to the rescue …hehee 😉
I googled a few sites with the recipes and finally decided to try this one but I mprovise a little bit on my part … afterall cooking is about creativity and daring to be different at times.
Omurice ….. it really taste great! The kids love it too 🙂
Here’s the recipe :
· 4 cups steamed rice
· 1/2 lb. chicken breast, cut into small pieces (I use Thai fishcake)
· 1 green peppers, cored and finely chopped
· 4 white mushrooms, sliced (I did not have mushroom at home so I substitute with carrot)
· 1/2 onion, chopped (I use onions as well as some garlic to further enhance the taste)
· salt and pepper to season
· 4 Tbsp ketchup
· vegetable oil for frying
· 8 eggs
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet and saute the chicken. Add onion, garlic, mushrooms, and green pepper in the skillet and saute together until softened. Add steamed rice in the pan and stir-fry together. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Stop the heat and add ketchup and mix well. Set the seasoned rice aside.
Heat about 1 tsp of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Beat two eggs in a small bowl and pour the egg in the skillet. Quickly spread the egg and make a round omelette. Place 1/4 of the seasoned rice in the middle of the omelette and fold top and bottom sides of omelette over the rice. Cover the frying pan with a plate and carefully turn them over to place the omurice on the plate. Repeat this process to make four omelette rice. Put some ketchup on top of omurice just before serving.
Note : If you’re using carrot like I did, do saute the carrot first cause it will take longer for the carrot to soften before adding the other ingredients. Also to make it taste more spicy for those who like hot foods, you can add bird’s eye chillies to it just chopped them finely. I did that as well 🙂
