  • 8 eggs (2 per person)

How to make Szechuan Japanese Omu Rice

  1. To prepare the szechuan fried rice, take the frying pan/wok and add a little oil so the vegetables and rice don't stick to the bottom.
  2. Once the oil is at a proper temperature, add the garlic and the onion to it. Saute it to the point that the onion turns translucent. Then add in the carrots, capsicum to it and saute it well till it's cooked with a crunch. Then add salt to taste.
  3. Next add the soya sauce and the schezwan chilli paste together directly on the pan and mix the vegetables in, make sure not to burn it.
  4. Add the vinegar and chilli sauce (Ketchup and Sake if you are adding) and saute till there's no visible moisture. (You can taste the mix to adjust the flavouring.)
  5. Add the rice in the mixture, mix it with the back the paddle of the spatula so as to not break the grains. Stir it well and keep it aside.
  6. To prepare the omelette, heat oil in the pan again, then remove the excess oil from the pan. Crack two eggs and beat it well, make sure that no froth or bubbles are formed. Add the salt into this mixture.
  7. After checking the proper heat of the pan, pour the egg into the pan, quickly mix it rather than turning the pan. Once you can see the inside of it still a little bit wet, put the rice you will serve for one portion inside the omelette and quickly close the omelette around it.
  8. Put the dish on top of the pan so you can flip the omelette down without breaking it's shape. If it does get a little unshapely, with the help of a kitchen towel, you can shape it into a tear drop shape.
  9. You can serve it with a bit of tomato sauce on top if you want. It tastes good and kid loves it.
  10. Serve it hot and enjoy!

My Tip:

If you are adding chicken to the recipe, make sure to cook it with the vegetables before adding the vinegar. You can add more vegetables or chicken to make the non-vegetarian version. It even goes good with ketchup since it balances the flavour with it's sweetness. You can add szechuan chilli paste and sake to the mixture. Make sure that the rice is precooked and loose, so that it gets coated well with the vegetables and sauces. For the omelette, make sure it has a yellow colour and that you don't over cook it that brown spots form. Don't flip it, otherwise it won't stick to the rice properly. Good luck!
