Last week we found a Chirashi Zushi package at a Japanese store. I didn’t know what it was but my hubby told me that it’s easy and fun to make and tastes great. Chirashi means “Scattered”, you can basically add any ingredients you like and be creative 🙂 This is the list of ingredients that we used.
- Sushi Taro Mix
- Japanese Rice – 2 cups
- Egg – 3
- Avocado – 1
- Edamame – 1 cup
- Suger – 3 teaspoon
- Salt – 1 pinch
It is so easy that I have not many word to explain: Prepare 2 cups of rice with just less water, so rice texture stands out. Let’s make Tamago Yaki, which is Japanese omelet. Crack 3 eggs in a bowl, and add 3 teaspoon of sugar and 1 pinch of salt. Mix it well. (No MSG added LOL)
Preheat the pan with high heat, and pour the egg. Shake the pan and mix the egg very quickly. Once you see its’s half-cooked, turn off the stove. Then roll it carefully. This process takes about 45 seconds.
While the omelet is cooling down, cut an avocado in to 1/2 inch pieces and prepare edamame. If you like to add more ingredients such as fish, cucumber, crab stick, octopus, cheese? crispy bacon? Mango? just be creative 🙂 It’s nice to prepare the ingredients with similar sizes.
Add the mixture to rice and mix it well, but try not to press rice and cool it down for 5 mins. Finally decorate mixed rice with the ingredients. Omelet is little sweet and soft, I drizzle soy sauce to it and avocado, so yummy! Rice is like real sushi rice, it’s so addictively good. You can add anything you like and be creative 🙂
