Kanpai Omurice | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Kanpai or Kampai (乾杯) means "cheers" in Japanese!

Quite some time ago, I made a funny Omurice, if you remember! Those fingers are sausages! I drew nails and the beer foam using mayonnaise. Simple yet entertaining!

Omurice is a fried rice wrapped with thin omelette. Usually, the rice is chicken rice (seasoned with ketchup) but you can use any kind of flavored rice (leftover is perfect!): Chinese-style fried rice, pilaf, Paella, etc…

In my tutorial, I used Chinese-style fried rice!

It can be a great father's day menu idea or a dish to surprise your partner ;D


Kanpai Omurice

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 1

8oz. (225g) flavored rice of your choice
1 egg
2.5 sausage
cooking oil

1. Cut one sausage diagonally to look like your thumb. And chop the other two to look like the rest of your fingers.
2. Beat 1 or 2 eggs in a bowl. Heat cooking oil in a pan and make a thin omelette. If you don't have a rectangle omelette pan, you can make a circle thin omelette and cut it later.
3. Remove the omelette and cook sausages.
4. Cut the longer side of the omelette to make a thin strip.
5. Place the flavored rice of your choice on the plate and shape it like a mug.
6. Cover the rice with the thin omelette and make a handle with the thin strip.
7. Place the sausages to look like holding the mug.
8. Draw the fingernails and the beer foam with mayonnaise.
9. Write a message with ketchup!

My original recipe in Japanese is here.
