Experiment: Omusoba (オムそば)
I don’t know if I have mentioned it before, but I LOOOOVE eggs. Anything tastes better with eggs don’t you think? Anyway, I got some egg noodles from my Number 1 Fan’s mom (THANKS Number 1 Fan’s mom!!!), so I decided to make omusoba with the noodles. In case you’re wondering what “omusoba” is, it’s “omelette soba,” which means soba wrapped in omelette. Japanese call it “omu-soba.” Another version would be “omurice.” I think omurice comes before omusoba… but who knows!
Anyways, I used egg noodles instead of soba for this dish. Feel free to substitute it with soba.
Materials: (serve 2)
egg noodles (portion for 2)
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 stalks green onions, cut into 2-inch size
ham (as much as you like)
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp okonomiyaki sauce
1 tsp chilli oil
1) Boil a pot of water. Cook the noodles until soft. Drain.
2) Heat a frying pan, put some oil in, then put in the onion and green onions. Stir fry until the fragrance comes out. Put in the noodles and ham and cook..
3) Put the worcestershire sauce, okonomiyaki sauce, chilli oil and white pepper in. Mix well with the noodles.
4) In a small bowl, beat the two eggs.
5) In another frying pan, pour in the 1/2 of the egg mixture. When the egg is ready, put the noodles in the centre, then wrap the egg around the noodles. Repeat for the remaining half of the egg mixture.
6) Put the mayonnaise, okonomiyaki sauce, nori and bonito flakes on top. Serve.
1) You can use ketchup to substitute the mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce.
2) If you don’t wanna wrap the noodles, you can serve it like the picture below: 🙂
