Submitted by: CRYSTALDREAMS

Introduction

A popular Japanese adaptation of omelettes. A popular Japanese adaptation of omelettes.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    0.5 cup White rice (cooked)
    2 tbsp Vegetable oil
    1 cup Chopped white onion
    1 cup Chopped green bell peppers
    1 cup Chopped red/yellow bell peppers
    2 tbsp Tomato (pasta) sauce
    1 large Egg
    2 tbsp Egg white
    2 tsp Salt
    *Optional: 1 tbsp Salsa
    *Optional: 1 tsp Thai hot sauce
    *Optional: Ketchup

Directions

Heat up wok and 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. When oil is hot, stir fry onions until slightly transparent, then stir in bell peppers and 1 tsp of salt. Stir fry until most of the water has evaporated, then add the cooked rice and tomato sauce. Stir fry rice until completely mixed with vegetables (it may be necessary to add a bit more oil at this point if rice is sticky).
Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk egg, egg white, and 1 tsp salt together. Heat up a frying pan with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. When oil is hot, pour in egg mixture. Make sure it is spread out flat in the frying pan. When omelette is almost ready, put fried rice mixture on top and use spatula to fold omelette over rice (like a tortilla wrap). Transfer to plate and decorate with ketchup and/or salsa on top.

Options:
- Can add some spicy sauce to the tomato sauce
- Can stir fry chicken breast chunks in (before bell peppers)
- Can use some butter (less vegetable oil) to fry the egg

Tips:
- Cook the rice the night before, fluff it up in ricecooker (just break up the pieces), and leave overnight so that it's a bit aired out.
- Keep omelette as thin as possible

  • I love omurice!!! It's great in a lunchbox or at home.

    I recommend putting chicken and ketchup in the recipe. I know ketchup may seem strange but it adds a nice sweet&sour flavour to the fried rice, and it's great with eggs. - 6/21/11
