I first saw a video by ochikeron on YouTube some weeks back. Thereafter, the craze is seen all over Facebook on various friend’s posts as well as cooking groups. I finally plucked up some courage to test out the recipe today despite not having a nice plump & juice tomato in the fridge. All the facebook users must have bought up all the nice-looking tomatoes at the NTUC! 😦 And so, I stole from my son’s stash of cherry tomatoes! ;p
The recipe is easy to follow with just 3 condiments to enhance flavouring. Other ingredients can be added to one’s own fancy. So since i have abit of everything in the fridge today, i tried my luck with half the time hoping the final output will not be overly wet.
And so the final verdict from everybody including the fussy kids – THUMBS UP! I’m once again the happiest mum in the world today.
Recipe (adapted from ochikeron) :-
Main Ingredients :-
1 big tomato (i used 12 cherry tomatoes)
2 cups of unwashed white rice
3 cups of water (*less est 4 tablespoons of water to compensate for the amount of juice from tomato & mushrooms)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Other Ingredients :- ham / cabbage / japanese mushrooms (or anything else you would like to add).
Mix all together. *Remember to remove equivalent amount of water before cooking the rice. Turn on the rice cooker and WAIT!
Mix well before serving.
