Omurice/オムライス/ Rice Wrap in Omelet - Day 13

I feel like making something simple today without taking much effort. The easiest has to be fried rice with some leftover rice from two days ago. And how can I incorporate the Jelly Mould into this dish? Wrap the rice up with a cone shape omelet of course. There come the Omurice. Omurice is a Japanese word for "omelet and rice. The dish mainly consists of fried rice with whatever other ingredients you wish, wrapped in a thin sheet of fried omelets. Many restaurants serve the dish with white sauce, tomato based sauce or ketchup. Malaysia has a version of this rice too and it is called Nasi Goreng Pattaya .




Ingredients:

2 cups of cooked Japanese rice – you can always use regular white or brown rice
4 oz chicken breast – cut into small cubes
10 shrimps – peel and deveined
1 small – cut small
1 tomato – cut into small cubes
1 clove garlic - chopped
¼ cup green peas
¼ corn kernels

Seasonings:

2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Omelet:

2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 spring onion – cut small
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat up about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a wok. Add in onion and garlic and sauté until fragrant and lightly brown. Add in the chicken and continue to sauté until the chicken turn’s opaque color. Add in the shrimps. Cook until the shrimps turns pink.
2. Add in the tomato, peas and corn. Add in the seasonings. Mix really well. Add rice into the wok and continue to stir fry until well combined and rice is warm. Check seasonings.
3. Remove the rice and set it aside. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add in the green onions. Mix well.
4. Heat up a non-stick large frying pan. Add in 2 tsp of olive oil and give the pan a few swirls. Pour the eggs into the frying pan, Spread them out and let it cook. Once the egg is set and lightly brown, flip them over to the other side. Remove the omelet to the cutting board. Cut it into half.
5. Line the omelet into the jelly moulds, fill it up with the rice and press it down with a spoon. Unmold it on the plate, drizzle it with some ketchup and serve with some salad.

I like this nasi goreng pattaya/omurice, but I can never get the omelette right. I tried a few times but I couldn't wrap up the rice with the omelette nicely. I like the way you shaped the rice inside the omelette dome, looks like a little house to me :)

cheers

Monique said...

I simply LOVE omurice! I ate it so many times when I lived in Japan!!! In fact, it was the last meal I ate at the airport before coming back to the States, lol. Such a comforting dish! :D The Jelly Mould really transforms the dish and gives it such a simple yet fun and powerful presentation---I can't wait to try it this way the next time I make omurice! Thank you for sharing!
