What is Omurice

Omurice is a popular Japanese comfort food which consists of ketchup flavored fried rice wrapped in or covered with eggs. "Omu" comes from "omelet". It can be served at both casual and nice restaurants, and also people often cook it at home.

The basic omurice consists of simple ingredients: eggs, chicken, vegetables, rice, ketchup, and a sauce. The rice is often wrapped with eggs or topped with a soft-cooked omelet which later is sliced in the middle to open (called "tampopo omurice"). When people make omurice at home, the omelette is usually simply placed over the rice because it is much easier.
