omurice with curry

a few years ago, i relived a childhood meal at hiroko’s place: omurice with curry. i really enjoyed it.

recently, i had a hankering for it again so i decided to make it myself. my parents used to use these curry blocks to make japanese flavored curry. instead of ketchup rice that is usually inside of the omelette, i used regular white rice and then put some ketchup on top.

while it may not be as good as authentic japanese omurice, it will tie me over until i make it back to hiroko’s place or another japanese restaurant with authentic omurice!

Ingredients

  • 2 stalks of carrots, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium potato, cut into small chunks
  • 5 medium cremini mushrooms, cut in quarters
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 4 blocks of S&B Golden Curry sauce mix, mild/medium hot/hot
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ketchup
  • 2-4 cups white rice

Special equipment

  • rice cooker
