A Conversation for Rice Recipes


Post 1


I can't live without rice, these days. I put it into nearly everything.

One of my favourite recipes is Omurice, a Japanese recipe from the "yohshoku" culture (i.e., it's an adapted western food). It consists of an omelette and ketchupy rice. Careful not to overdo it on the ketchup, though.

Here's how it's made (in my kitchen, anyway):

Rice --

Cook according to the packet instructions. I tend to use sushi rice for this.

While that's cooking:

Omelette --
1 egg
Dash of milk
1 tablespoon water
Dash of salt
teaspooon of sugar.

Before you do anything, put the frying pan on a low heat and just let it get warm. Don't put any oil in yet.

Crack yer egg into a bowl, and add your milk and water and beat well. Then, add the salt and sugar.

BRUSH the pan (you can use kitchen towel for this) with enough oil to coat the bottom. It shouldn't be swimming in it. Pour in the egg and let it fill the base of the pan. If this doesn't happen, swirl around a little.

While your omelette is cooking, take your cooked rice and add a tiny bit of oil to the bottom of the pan and gently stirfry it. You can add meat (chicken or ham might be good) and some onions to it, too. If you're using meat and veg, make sure it's cooked properly, then add ketchup to taste -- 1-1/2 tablespoons should suffice. You don't want it to be soup. Just enough to coat it.

Once the omelette's done, turn it out onto a plate. Then, put your rice on top, on one half of the omelette and fold the other half of the omelette on top of it. At this time, I like to make patterns on top with some ketchup. *Grin*

Ooh, this sounds nice. I'm trying to eat cheaply at the moment until someone gives me a job or publishes my writing and gives me an enormous cheque for it so I might try these.
