Step 4 - Fry egg

  • In a small pan on medium heat, heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil. Pour in egg mixture and light scramble. Once edges start to cook, start rolling the omelette to one side of the pan. Use the curve edges of the pan to help you achieve an oval omelette.
If making an oval-shaped omelette is too difficult, you could scramble eggs and place it over the rice instead
This is a popular dish in maid cafes in Japan. Waitresses dressed as “maids” will write an encouraging phrase to cheer the customers up alongside the dishes ordered by customers.

Plate and serve!

Quickly place the omelette over the bed of rice and slice down the middle of the omelette, so that it splits open down the middle, revealing its silky centre. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
