Omurice (Japanese Omelette Rice)

Omurice (Japanese Omelette Rice)

Omurice is a Japanese word for “omelet and rice” and is an omelet wrapped around fried rice and topped with ketchup– It is a perfect example of Asian & Western fusion.

The simplest style of omurice consists of a thin, fully-cooked sheet of egg, wrapped around a filling of chicken or vegetable fried rice, or basically anything you like which is already available in your pantry and after it is then topped with ketchup or with a demi glaze. But on this recipe, I’ve used a instant Japanese Curry roux which is absolutely easy to make.

Making Omurice is a bit tricky it takes practice which I’ve done 40th times and still no success. The way is to immediately roll out the omelet into the pan and onto the rice, and if you’ve cooked it properly, a slice of a knife will make the omelet fall open and cover the rice with a soft, saucy scramble.

If you are looking for late night eats after a drink with friends this Japanese Omurice is one of those delicious standby recipes that is just so darn easy to make and will definitely be on your list of comfort food!

Please enjoy!!!

Lots of love,
