A Japanese Omelet Rice Dish
If you are a food lover you’ve probably seen the Omurice video that has been doing the rounds on social media. It’s absolutely mesmerizing how chef Moto Kichi makes that omelet which goes over the fried rice and when he cuts it then it just oozes over the rice and he pours gravy over it all. It’s probably taken years of practice to perfect the art of making Omurice the way chef Moto Kichi makes it, so for all us home cooks there is an easier way. Watch the video and find out.
Tomato Ketchup Fried Rice
Wait what? Tomato Ketchup in a fried rice? Yes indeed. So Omurice is a ‘western’ style Japanese dish, I mistakenly said ‘American’ in the video. The fried rice is basically tomato flavoured and is made originally using ketchup. Since most ketchup has tons of sugar in it we’re going to make ours Keto friendly by using puree and seasoning it with garlic, soya sauce, vinegar and everything else that goes into the fried rice. Anyway this is an excellent dish and if you like egg and Japanese food try my recipe for Oyakodon.
In the macros below I have included the eggs as well, you will have to make 2 separate stuffed omelets. It’s not just 1 large 4 egg omelet stuffed with all the rice. You can try doing that but it will be a pain to fold it and get it out perfectly. Also if you want to use more than 2 eggs for a portion you can do that too. Another handy tip is not using the cream in the eggs to make them firmer and less likely to break when folding. You can add an additional tablespoon of butter over the Omurice to hit your fat macros.
