Experiment: Onion fried eggs rice bowl
I was browsing through cookpad one day, and I saw this recipe. It has two of my favourite foods – eggs and plums, and the presentation of the rice bowl was so good! I gotta give this recipe a try! Although it’s a fairly simple dish, it did take me longer than expected to make because of the presentation. OH well, I guess, pretty presentation does make food taste better!
Materials: (serves 2)
2 bowls of cooked rice
2 Japanese preserved plums
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp Soy sauce (or mentsuyu)
black pepper (to taste)
7-flavour powder (to taste)
1) Remove the seeds from the plums. Chop the plums into small pieces. Mix with rice.
2) In a small bowl, mix the eggs, mayonnaise, sugar, soy sauce (or mentsuyu), black pepper and 7-flaovour powder together.
3) Heat a small frying pan, add oil. Put the sliced onions in and stir fry until the onions brown a little. Put the egg mixture in. Stir fry until the egg is cooked.
4) In a bowl/plate, first put the rice with plum in, and then put the onions and eggs on top of the rice. Sprinkle bonito flakes and sesame seeds on top.
1) While I was taking picture of this dish, I suddenly thought of “ochazuke” (お茶漬け). I think I can totally transform this dish into ochazuke by pouring hot green tea in, and it would still taste good! Must try next time!
Experiment: Tuna Mayo Rice Bowl (ツナマヨご飯）
My friend, Miss S, was telling me about a dish that she saw in a Japanese recipe magazine. She highly recommends it, coz it’s quick, cheap and yummy. Well, doesn’t it sound “cheapickdorable?” hehe. Anyway, I think this dish is great for summer coz you don’t need to turn on the stove at all! Oh, provided that you have a rice cooker of course. 😛
Materials: (serves 2)
2 bowls of rice
1 can of tuna
a few stalks of green onions, finely chopped
mayonnaise (as much as you like)
Salt and pepper to taste
1) In a small bowl, mix together the tuna, green onions, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
2) Put the rice on top of a plate, then half of the tuna mayo on the rice.
3) In a small cup, crack the egg in, and then pour tap water into the cup. Just pour enough to cover the egg. Microwave it for about 20 seconds, or until it’s cooked on the outside and runny on the inside. You might actually have to test it coz everyone microwave is different. OH and I find that the container makes a difference too! So it’s better to microwave it for shorter time first then slowly add 5 seconds at a time. Anyways… you can try it at home.
4) Put the egg on top of the tuna mayo.
5) Sprinkle as much sesame seeds and seaweed on top as you like.
1) I think this dish took me like… 5 minutes to complete?
2) It’s a cheap dish!!! Miss S told me that one time she got her tuna for $0.49, and that was quite recently. So this meal would cause her about $1.00 and it feeds two people! So cheap. I’ll remember to stock up on the tuna next time it goes on sale.
