Easy Japanese cooking: Omuraisu
So when I was looking at a Mago Mago episode from Arashi (a Japanese boysband),
Matsumoto Jun was cooking a Japanese dish called Omuraisu, basically an omelet with rice inside.
I thought, I can make that too !!
So I did ^^. And even better, all things I needed were in my fridge.
This is my recipe loosely based on Matsujun's recipe.

Boil the rice (instead of boiling rice, you can use some leftover rice for the other day, but don't start to warm it just yet)
Cut the chicken (could also be some leftover) in small pieces and chop all the vegetables.
bake the chicken (not brown yet)
add the chopped vegetables and let soften, stir
If it's softened, add the rice (here comes the leftover rice) and stir so the rice takes over the colour.
turn off the heat and add 1 teaspoon ketchup / person. (if you're making this, I would start of with 1 teaspoon and taste..., 'cause too much ketchup is just too much ketchup ) + keep on stirring!!
let this rest
Beat 2 eggs and pour the eggs in the pan (add again some oil in the pan before you do this)
(since I work with 1 pan, I put this on a plate and put the egg in the same pan)
shape a nice round omelet (DON'T FLIP), just let it bake until you only have small liquid of egg left on the top (not burning ...)
put some seasoned rice in the middle of your omelet and fold one side of the egg to the other one (see picture), so the rice is inside the omelet.
take a plat and put it on top of the pan and flip
You can add some more ketchup on top to give it a nice touch and you have yourself a tasty Japanese dish: Omuraisu! Itadakimasu!!!! (Enjoy your meal)
