Summer Cooking #2; Omurice ~
Just kidding. Maybe. Sorta. Not really. Technically, by wikipedia’s definition of omurice—an omelette made with fried rice and is usually topped with ketchup—what I made can be considered “omurice.” Usually the rice part is pan-fried rice with chicken and ketchup, but I didn’t really feel like eating ketchup-rice so I stirred up my own (Vietnamese) version of omurice. Instead of chopping up fresh onion, partially because I only needed a little bit and didn’t feel like using only like 1/4 or 1/3 of an onion and then storing away the rest, I used the leftover onions in the big pot of Viet noodle soup, canh, from last night’s dinner. The onions were wet/flavored anyways from the soup so I accounted that for the boullion flavor that I needed. I stir-fried that with garlic and tofu (instead of chicken) until most of the liquid evaporated and then set that aside. Then I heated up the rice, stirred it with a soy sauce mixture, and added back the tofu. After, I just made the omelette and placed the “fried” rice mixture inside and topped it with sriracha instead of ketchup for some spiciness to it, hehe. It turned out pretty good still, :P
