Discover omurice, a classic of Japanese cuisine that is very easy to prepare. Fried rice topped with an omelette. Ideal for kids!

Omurice, the Japanese rice omelette

Ah! How many Japanese recipes are born from the influence of Western cuisine? Karaage, katsudon, curry and, of course, the recipe I bring you today, omurice!

What is Omurice?

Omurice, pronounced as omu-raisu, is a delicious omelet filled with fried rice with ketchup. It is one of those Japanese dishes that are born from Western influence and that has managed to sneak not only into restaurants, but also into Japanese homes.

Although the origins of this dish are unclear, there are multiple restaurants that claim to be the creators of this dish delicacy, including “Renga-tei” in Ginza, Tokyo and “Hokkyokusei” in Osaka.

After World War II, Western influence and the influx of ingredients such as ketchup, onions, and meat helped this dish become popular.

The famous omurice of Kichi Kichi.

The original version of this dish is prepared with ketchup, as I show you today in this recipe.

My favorite, however, is the one prepared by chef Yukimura Motokichi at his restaurant Kichi Kichi Omurice.

This has become popular via the internet with its version of fried rice with demi-glacé sauce and a rarely cooked omelette. One of those tortillas that, when cut with the knife, opens to cover the rice.

A delight that I hope to share with you soon.

The omurice, perfect if you have an empty fridge.

As you’ll soon see, preparing this recipe at home is a breeze. Plus, it’s great for those days when the pantry is empty.

The reason is simple, if you don’t have an ingredient, you can substitute it for another. In this fried rice, anything goes. You can use edamame, peas, chicken, jam, prawns, onion, spring onion, carrot, mushrooms, enoki,…

Without further ado, here I share with you the basic recipe to prepare a delicious omurice at home.

Recipe Equipment

  • Sartén


  • 40 g pollo opto por usar contramuslo
  • 60 g cebolla
  • 5-6 edamame sin vaina
  • 10 g mantequilla
  • 150 g arroz japonés cocinado
  • 50 g ketchup extra para decorar
  • 3 huevos


Arroz Frito

  • Comenzamos preparando el arroz usando una arrocera o, si no teneis una, siguiendo las instrucciones de nuestra receta para preparar arroz japonés.
  • Cortamos la cebolla a daditos pequeños.
  • Seguidamente cortamos el pollo a trocito pequeños.
  • En un plato preparamos todos los ingredientes: el ketchup, la mantequilla, los edamame y la cebolla. Al ser una receta “rápida”, tenerlo todo preparado os será de gran ayuda.
  • En una sartén calentamos un poco de aceite y lo distribuimos bien. Añadimos el pollo, la cebolla y cocinamos.
  • Pasado un par de minutos, añadimos los edamame y la mantequilla.
  • Una vez la cebolla empieza a coger color y la carne este cocida, añadimos el arroz. Es importante removerlo de forma constante.
  • Tras un par de minutos, hacemos un agujero en el centro y añadimos el ketchup.
  • Tan pronto este empiece a burbujear, salteamos el arroz para que el ketchup quede bien repartido, dejamos cocinar un minuto más sin parar de remover y retiramos del fuego.


  • En una sartén antiadherente añadimos un poco de aceite.
  • Seguidamente añadimos los huevos que habremos batido previamente y removemos como si quisiéramos hacer huevos revueltos.
  • Tan pronto estos estén semi cocidos, dejamos de remover, y dejamos que se cueca un poco la parte inferior.
  • Añadimos el arroz frito en el centro y lo envolvemos con la tortilla. Le podemos dar forma usando una espátula pero, la mejor forma (aunque requiere un poco de práctica) es usar la sartén como vemos en el video.
  • Opcionalmente, podéis decorarlo con con un poco de ketchup adicional.
