Take the flavours of the classic comfort food to new heights with this omurice with crab and curry sauce. Omurice is a Japanese favourite consisting of omelette covering a bed of fried rice slathered in sauce. This particular version involves a generous dose of rich and flavourful curry sauce that works perfectly with the fluffy omelette and veg and crab-filled fried rice inside.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 2 chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 crabsticks, chopped
  • 50g cooked, cold jasmine rice
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • 1 cube curry roux
  • 150ml hot water
  • Chives, chopped

Method:

  1. Fry the onion and mushrooms in a small saucepan over a medium heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the rice, crabsticks and soy sauce. Stir until everything is evenly distributed. Remove from the heat.
  3. Make the curry sauce by mixing the roux with hot water in a mug then microwave for 1-2 minutes until thickened to your liking. Set aside.
  4. Whisk the eggs and mirin together in a small bowl.
  5. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium high heat. When the pan is hot, pour the eggs into the pan and quickly spread to cover the bottom of the pan.
  6. Lower the heat and put the fried rice on top of the omelette. Fold both sides of the omelette toward the middle of the rice to cover.
  7. When the eggs have cooked, cover the frying pan with a plate and carefully flip over to place the omurice on the plate. Serve the curry sauce over the omurice and sprinkle with chopped chives.
