Since I am a native Japanese person I would like to add some points to this recipe. Some chicken - diced and cooked. Eggs - need to be 3/4 done - has to have some running juice. When you cover it please try to cover the runny side facing to the rice. Green Pepper - nice addition My kids love this dish!! I think this is one of Japanese kids favorite dishes in decades.
Having lived in Japan for a year with Japanese families I was subjected to eat Ohm Rice at least once a week. After all it is a quick easy meal for Japanese parents and kids love the mix of rice eggs and ketchup. Unfortunatly I lost the recipe when I returned to the US of A so I was quite excited to find this recipe. I followed this recipe exactly as it is given and was pleased to taste the same Japanese dish I had remembered. It really is a pleasant mix of tastes incredibly simple and perfectly portioned. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
When I lived in China I would hunt for restaurants that carried this type of "rice omelet." The first time I ordered it and it arrived covered in ketchup I was shocked; however after eating it I was a believer. I didn't have fresh carrots on hand so I thawed a package of frozen mixed vegetables (I put a serving in a colander and ran warm water over them before adding them to the skillet) and it tasted just fine. I will definitely make this again.
I didn't expect to like this but I did!! You have to like ketchup to enjoy this recipe because it is the main flavor. I can't wait for my oldest son to try this because he loves Japanese cooking and culture. The only thing I did differently is to fry the vegetables in a mix of smart balance vegetable oil and butter instead of just butter.
I wasn't expecting to find an omuraisu recipe here. I've never been to Japan but I decided to try my hand at making this after observing this dish several times in anime and an webisode of cooking with dog. How I've read it is that it is one of those western dishes that morphed into a more Japanese favorite kind of like how Ramune was actually inspired from Lemonade in the beginning. Omuraisu supposedly stands for omulet rice. I don't usually use specific measurements but this recipe couldn't hurt. I've always cooked the rice with oil but it should be good with butter.
It only has two stars because of the amount of ketchup used. If you look up other omurice recipes they don't use that much ketchup just enough for some color in the rice and with that "zigzag" garnish on top.
