About the Recipe

If you like omurice, this is another dish that I am sure will become a favourite too. Along with the addition of Korea's national food, kimchi and some cheese, this recipe also features a rather slick way to present the omelette - as I always do when there is a new technique to master, I encourage you to take a look at the video tutorial to get a visual idea of what to do.


40g chicken breast or thigh

1/4 green bell pepper (30g)

150g kimchi

360g cooked rice

1/2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil

4 large eggs

4 tsp vegetable oil

50g grated cheddar cheese

1 spring onion, finely chopped for topping (optional)


finely chop the chicken and the bell pepper

heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil in a frying pan, add the bell pepper & chicken and stir fry for 1 - 2 mins

add the kimchi, cooked rice & soy sauce and stir well for 2 - 3 mins, until mixed well

when the rice base is ready, remove from the heat and set aside.

use a bowl to mould 1/2 the fried rice and tip out onto each serving plate

heat 2 tsp of veg oil in a frying pan and beat of the 2 eggs in a bowl. pour the eggs into the hot frying pan, then quickly sprinkle over 1/2 the cheese

when the bottom of the omelette is partially set, use a pair of chopsticks to twist the omelette from the edges towards the centre, so the omelette is about the right size to cover the rice.

before the omelette cooks completely. use a slice to gently slide it out of the pan & over the rice

repeat for your second serving

sprinkle the omelettes with some chopped spring onion
