Du musst es nochmal! You Gotta Try, Try, Again! Books Book 1 Apr I remember how much I enjoyed Omurice as a child in Korea.
It is so nice to see two neighboring countries share similar food. In Korea we use chopped hams and any vegetables available, and serve with tomato based gravy or ketchup just like yours. I better make some soon for my kidos. Thanks for sharing and welcome back to blogging. Very nice looking omelet, Nami and the stuffing looks very flavorful. I love your photography with the very subtle bokeh.
Beautiful job, Nami! Oh wow, what a fun idea! I honestly never thought to add rice and other goodies in my omelette…. BUT I bet it is hearty, and a perfect filling meal! Looks and sounds fantastic! Hugs, Terra. I know how you feel. There just does not seem to be enough time in the day to get everything done, between work, kids and the cooking blog… I love this recipe super easy and yummy but I am shocked that the sauce on top is ketchup. I thought for sure it would be one of those million other yummy japanese sauces I have in my refrigerator… Ja Mata, BAM.
Talk bout blindness. I see some other recipes use like pasta sauce or jus tinned canned tomatoes. Still number1 fan on ur webbie!!! Hi Amrita! In Japan there are so many variations of Omurice. The fried rice can be versatile as long as egg omelette and rice complement to each other. We have Omurice restaurants in Japan and you will be surprised how many kinds they serve!
So be creative and make your own style. This looks delicious, Nami! I have never considered putting rice in an omelet before this and now I am thinking of so many possibilities. Thanks for the recipe! I still need to work on my omelet flip, but it still turned out great! Especially with spinach! Hi Holly! You will be better at it next time! Thank you for posting this recipe, Nami! I tried yesterday by carefully following all the steps and oh, it was delicious!! Hi Dira! Thank you so much for your feedback!
I have tried this recipe numerous times since discovering the blog, and each time it is even more delicious! I love the simplicity of the instructions and the great flavor of the dish! Up until using this recipe, I had always struggled with omurice. Thank you so much for sharing this. Hi Megan!
Omurice is very versatile with ingredients and hope you will enjoy seasonal ingredients in this recipe too! Thanks so much for writing! You made my day! Looks delicious! Do u have any suggestions? Hi Yuri! Do you think it was an Omurice with demi-glace sauce? I often make the rice with whatever is in the fridge and love the addition of the ketchup and soy sauce. Quick and delicious and fun, thank you! Hi Janice! Thank you so much for letting me know! Thanks for your feedback! Hi Caroline!
Thank you so much for your kind feedback. Happy to hear step-by-step pictures were helpful. XD Oh well, it was only me eating it. Hi Lexi! You just have to practice to understand the tricks. Good luck! So glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for the feedback! I know Omurice by watching Rooftop Prince and really want to try it, awwww…. Oh…me too. I tried to cook it from what I got from the drama. It was delicious.
But the omelette making part was so hard!! Remember the part when J4 repeated the name? Hi Niloo! Thank you for trying this recipe! Omelette making needs some practice but you will get hang of it! Tried it without chicken and vegetables, and it was still pretty good! Good way to use leftover rice from the day before.
Hi Sam! So glad you liked it! Thank you so much for this recipe. Thank you for the pictures, they really helped with the shaping! Hi Stephanie! Hi Nami. Anyway, a little while ago I saw on TV that the original Omurice from an old and traditional Japanese restaurant did not use tomato ketchup. They used soy sauce instead. Is that true? Hi Angie! Thank you so much for your kind words!
The first time I had this dish was with a Japanese Bonsai collector in Niihama, Ehime prefecture, at a small restaurant… great memories of him sharing his dish with me… so simple and really a good meal! It was filling and quick! Thank you for your recipes! Hi Sunny! Lots of kids love it and they will continue eating it even when they are adult. Glad to hear you liked it. Hi Mira! Yes, I cook all the recipes myself. If I adapted the recipe from somewhere, it should say so in the Note section of my recipe. Yes oishii is correct. Even my friend like it!
Hi, I was just wondering what is the difference between Japanese rice and white rice. Also could I use white or brown rice to make this or would it ruin the whole thing? Thank you for posting this great recipe. Hi Chris!

White rice means milled rice that has had its husk, bran, and germ removed. Japanese rice is just a kind of rice, which is short grain rice. On the other hand, Jasmine rice commonly served in Chinese restaurants is long grain rice. Both rice can be brown rice or white rice depending if it still has bran or not. Hope this helps. All right then, I managed to snap a totally blurry and downright ugly photo before the whole thing was gulped down. It was delicious, easy and quick to do! Will definitely become a dinner favorite. Bacon works great, as does the Asian veg mix I found at my local supermarket.
Hi Lizzy! SO sorry for my late response. I am really happy to hear you liked this recipe, and thank you for sharing the photo! Bacon is a great idea too. I love adding sausages and bacon in the rice. BTW I cooked your honey and soy sauce chicken the other day, that was so yummy! That sounds delicious — I love lemongrass!
Mine did not come like that. Hi Enigma! Good luck practicing! I just ate, but this made me hungry again. I know what mt household will have for breakfast tomorrow. Oh I did not know that this recipe is Japanese. We have just saw a Korean series that had this dish and my husband wanted me to make it- but I think the actress made it with shrimp. Hi Colleen! Any milk is fine. You just want to make the egg mixture more smooth. This is why I love Japan, They always have the most creative, healthy and affordable most of the time haha foods.

It creates more exciting flavors. I enjoy every one of your posts because they are really easy to follow and you always add pictures. Hi Josh! Thank you so much for following! Thank you for posting this awesome recipe, Nami! I first came upon the omurice dish while watching a drama and that was a while ago. I remember having trouble making the egg omelet because it always broke. Despite this, your post made me go and make omurice for lunch! I was also taken on by how you made the egg omlet with milk. In the past, I only used egg and soy sauce, but the addition of milk took the mixture to a whole new level.
Once again, thank you! I had a blast making the omurice! Hi Chloe! Thank you so much for trying this recipe. It adds more flavor. Hi Yukiko-san! Please do not steal the content even translated in other languages. Please let your friends know that they can use Google Chrome as a browser. It gives you an option of translation to different languages and most of translation works. Thank you so much for understanding.
I work really, really hard to keep my content very original, and I do not want to have duplicated content elsewhere. Thank you again. I used to make it with beef. Sometimes, It might too tough but when success, It tastes pretty well. Oh if you have time, Would you make Coconut Cream Shrimp? I would like to make it at home but I have no clue. Hi Ana! So sorry I missed this message. Beef is not commonly used, but if you use it, I recommend ground beef. I hope when I get around to making this that I and the rest of my family enjoys this. Hi Niji! I love omelets with rice, but I make mine only using eggs.
It has a lot more nutrients in it than just using eggs. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Hi Sarah! I hope you enjoy this recipe! I have been following and cooking your recipes for a couple of months now and I must say that the Omurice recipe is one of my favorites. I would add that the quality of the ketchup you use is really quite important! Having lived in Tokyo for 2 years, this really bring me back. Thanks Nami! Hi Atte! Thank you so much for trying this recipe! Omurice with chipotle sauce sounds amazing!
Hello Nami! So glad I found this recipe! Did you ever find out why it was being requested a lot? Omelette rice was eaten a lot in that drama. We are late-comers to that drama but we have, over the past year, become very interested in the Japanese culture and Japanese entertainment. Thank you so much for what you do! Hi Tonya! Thank you for finding my recipe and hope you give it a try!
It might need some practice to make it look nice but hope you enjoy this recipe! I made this for supper; my boyfriend and his twin loved it! The filling keeps well overnight too, as it works nicely as both supper and breakfast. Hi Sami! Thank you very much for your kind feedback. Can I maybe wrap the rice and put it in the freezer? Or maybe can you kindly please tell how much rice should I cook, for myself only? I would really appreciate it! Hi Nadine! I would freeze the rice for the second half so that next time you want to eat you can just microwave or defrost at room temp and put inside the omelette.
Very easy and convenient. Practice will definitely help. Hello Nami Thanks for putting up this recipe. I actually came upon the omurice while reading a manga and since then i wanted to try it. The way you put it is very simple and you even take the time to put a little information of the dish. Hi Nawsheen! The ketchup rice actually goes quite well with the egg. And a few times I used quinoa, makes it super filling and protein packed.
Hi Kristi! Try all the noodles recipes Yaki soba, Yaki udon, etc — they are quick to make too! Good luck with your homework and school work! Omelette with left over fried rice from Chinese restaurant. See it a lot on Korean dramas, Roof Top Prince features it. Fingers crossed!!! I was first interested in omurice after watching rooftop prince. Do i want to cook it in a nonstick pan? I love your recipes Nami!!!!!!!! Hi Clipart! Thanks so much for trying my recipe! Oh yeah, jalapeno sounds like a great addition to give it a nice kick!
Hi Tania! My children prefer completely cooked so I often do that. You can still make good omelette.

Hi Srita! It looks really delicious, definately gonna try it. My mom hates soy sauce so would it alright if I were to leave it out or would that totally ruin it? HI Annika! Hope you find a good balance.
Alright let’s do this!
Thanks for trying this recipe and for your feedback! Thank you for this. My children have recently started studying Japanese at school and this receipe caught their attention. Seeings as my son is Autistic and hardly eats anything when he asks for something I look for it. I was worried it was going to be hard but your directions were easy to follow and simple to understand.
Again thank you very much! Hi Chantel! Your children is studying Japanese! Thank you for your kind feedback! This has to be one of my top favorite things to make, and eat! Though I do cook the filling in my rice cooker instead on the stove. I have to say, I love the infused taste the rice ends up getting compared to a pan.
But still, a fantastic dish hands down! I loved enjoyed my experience in Nippon, in Lived in Shinkoiwa, worked in Asakusabashi and trained in karate Shytoriu in Kiowa. Thank you and continue your good work. Hi Alain! Thank you so much for following me! I was always wary of the ketchup thing but when my host family when I was in Japan cornered me with a plate I had to try it and was very surprised at how good it was!

I saw you this morning on the paper OnSunday, what a surprise! And once more thank you very much indeed to you and all your staff for this home page that saves my dinner here in Japan for the happiness of the kids. Thank you for finding me on the newspaper! Great recipe. And if you are single like me, you can store the extra rice mix in tupperware and just nuke a portion on a plate to make more the following days. I got a dinner and three breakfasts from just one batch.
Hi Bob! Thank you for sharing your tip too! Thanks for trying this recipe and for your kind feedback. Just discover your website when I was curious and googled about omurice. You have created such a friendly and helpful site in Japanese cooking???? Impressed with the thoughtful pictorial step by step guidance. Also discover your videos — Fantastic! Hi San! Hope you enjoy my recipes. I eouod like to sign up for your news letter, but the site would not let me. Please let me know how to proceed. I cut down the recipe for one serving. Putting the cheese in was genius, it was first time egg would stick to rice so I could wrap it and flip it onto a plate.
And then the tsunami hit.
Maybe use a slightly smaller pan if you want thin egg crepe or two eggs work as well but egg will be thicker. I love adding cheese too! I plan to make this for school in the morning. So will it turn out the same even without cheese? Hi Eugene! Thank you for taking your time to write kind feedback. Ugh i failed make the omurice???? Hi Sara! Once you stop making, you kind of forget the detailed technique… so have to try making again. I just made the Omurice and it is really good! I had just had a question about the rice consistency. Mine turned out kind of sticky and a bit mushy.
Hi Maddie! As we put ketchup, it adds more moisture.
So when you make rice, you can try reducing the water a tiny bit. Or use a day-old rice. Even so, Japanese rice is stickier and it will stick to each other unlike Jasmine rice etc. Thank-you for write this,becauce I write this fir homework English homework in International school in japan ,sano. Thanks for posting this recipe.
We lived in Tokyo for a year and a half, when our oldest daughter was a toddler. Hi Carol! A really good and easy to follow guide on how to make one of the most iconic dishes of Japan. There are actually a lot of other guide for this, but yours is special because it includes much more details and illustrations, and the steps are simple and easy without making the dish tastes inferior. Looking forward to trying it out! Hi Nancy! Thank you for your kind words. I think a lot of people watch Japanese animation to learn this dish.
Somehow I never got to try this dish during my trips in Japan, but I was very curious about it. I made it tonight for dinner and it was really good. Not picture worthy though, as I have to get better at folding and flipping around the omelette, but I will practice in the future. Hi Rolanda! Thank you so much for trying this recpe! Hi Elizabeth! We just came back from Kyushu Yakushima, Kagoshima, Saga, and Nagasaki and we really loved there, very different from Yokohama where I grew up.
