omurice recipe or omelette rice


Omurice or omelette-rice is a dish consisting of an omelette wrapped over a vegetable fried rice or a chicken fried rice.Though exact origin of omurice is not clear,it is believed to be derived from a Japanese dish called yoshoku.For those kids who create a big fuss about whatever you serve to eat,just make this omurice (of course with all the vegetables in rice which they otherwise don’t eat 😉 ..) and give to them and see the magic … they will become your fans !!! I am telling this out my own experience 😉 .Though in our house we do eat chicken and fish(sometimes) we are not that big fans of nonveg dishes.So I have made this omurice with veg fried rice.You can also add thin strips or small pieces of boneless chicken,season it and fry it in oil and then add to the rice.Remaining procedure will be same.

In the japanese yoshoku recipe the method of making omelette is slightly different.They keep the eggs half cooked and cover the cooked layer upon the juicy and half cooked part in middle.They place the omelette on rice in a serving plate and then they cut the uppermost layer of the omellete making the juicy,half cooked egg surround the rice.And then they top it off with some sauce or ketchup.In this recipe I have made a simple full cooked thin omelette and wrapped it over the rice.Go ahead and see it yourself in the photos below 🙂 . So here comes the recipe for omurice.
