Manga cafe - omurice

Every manga person knows about the "omurice" . Was fooling about a bit, found this recipe. Trust me, it tastes better than it looks 


  • YIELD: 2 Servings
  • PREP: 5 mins
  • COOK: 12 mins
  • READY IN: 17 mins
Savory sweet chicken fried rice topped with an omelette, omurice (オムライス) is a modern Japanese culinary staple.



  1. Add the eggs, cream and salt to a bowl and beat until the whites and yolks are well combined. 
  2. Add the oil to a 10" nonstick frying pan, then add the onions, carrots and garlic. Sauté over medium heat until the carrots are tender.
  3. Turn the heat up to high, add the chicken and continue sautéing until the chicken has warmed up. Add the rice to the pan, and use a spatula to break up the clumps and combine evenly. Chicken rice for omurice
  4. Add the ketchup and stir-fry until everything is well combined. Taste the rice and season with salt and pepper to taste.Ketchup fried rice
  5. Mound the rice on a plate, then put the pan back on the heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan.Chicken rice
  6. Use a spatula to gently stir up the curds a few times, but stop stirring just before there isn't enough liquid left to spread out across the pan. Cover the pan with a lid and turn down the heat to medium low. Egg Omelette for Omurice
  7. The eggs are done when they aren't runny anymore, but the top surface still appears wet. If you use a glass lid, the egg should be done when the glass is hot to the touch.
  8. Slide the egg out of the pan and onto the rice. Garnish with ketchup and parsley to serve. Omurice
