Today’s Bento/Lunch Box (11/66): Omu Raisu Bento!

Omu Raisu/オムライスin Japanese means “omelette rice”, that is fried rice wrapped inside an omelette!

So the Missus proceeded in two steps:
first the rice: She steamed plain rice while she pan-fried some vegetables, especially diced pimentos, chopped onion and parsley.
Once the vegetables were almost cooked she added the rice and fried the whole lot while mixing it at the same time. At the last moment she added some tomato sauce and then switched off the fire.

She then made a round omelette in another frying pan.
When the omelette was ready she switched off the fire and filled the center of the omelette with plenty of fried rice.
She closed the omelette over the rice and put the whole upside down inside the round bento box.
She finally made a cross cut to show the inside and decorated the whole with lettuce and plum tomatoes.

As for the salad dessert box, she designed it with plenty of colors as usual!

The salad and the dessert were separated with more lettuce.
The salad consisted of boiled white and pink potatoes from her family’s garden, sliced cucumber and walnut.

For dessert apples cooked with grenadine mixed with raisins.

It proved a very hefty bento and yummy, too!

  1. I am speechless. It’s the most amazing bento I have ever seen. I cannot believe omu raisu can actually be made in my own kitchen with a European round pan! I will certainly make it very soon!

      1. Haha! For your wife nothing is difficult, I’m sure. Unfortunately I lack her dexterity!
        I am still wondering how to put the “open” omelet side under the rice…

      2. When the omeltte is finished, either leave it inside the pan or transfer it into a plate.
        Place rice in the middle of the omelette and pat the rice into a mound leaving enough omelette around it to fold on at least half of the rice.
        To turn it over into the bento box you can use two techniques:
        1) Bring the box upside down onto the omu raisu and turn the whole again upside down to drop the omu raisu into the box.
        2) Place a large leaf lettuce oon top, then place a plate over the lettuce and turn upside down to let the omu raisu lie on the lettuce. Later you can slide the lot into the box!
