AFF Japan - Soboro Donburi

This dish is so easy to make and so delicious, too!
When you have no idea what to cook and don't have enough much time for cooking, this dish is must be considered! Both young and old will definitely enjoy :)

Saw Veronica from Peng's Kitchen cooked this inspired by Nami from Just One Cookbook

I love to see the pea on top, I found it cute :P
Oh yes, I'm left handed LOL

What you need:

2 cups japonica (Japanese rice), cook according to the instruction
3 eggs
salt, pepper
200g minced chicken
1 tsp grated ginger with juice
1 tbsp sake
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp soya sauce
cooking oil
some defrosted green peas
shredded dried seaweed for garnish

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil on a frying pan over medium heat. Add in minced chicken and cook until almost cooked through. Using wooden spoon, break the chicken into small pieces
  2. Add sake, sugar and mirin, soya sauce and lastly, grated ginger with the juice
  3. Continue to cook until liquid is 98% gone. Transfer to a bowl and set aside, wash the pan
  4. Break the eggs in a bowl, sprinkle salt and pepper and beat with fork
  5. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan and pour egg mixture. Using several chopstick held together, break the egg into small pieces. Transfer to a bowl and set aside
  6. Serve rice in a bowl and put the toppings on top of the rice. Garnish with dried seaweed
  1. Nami used 1 tbsp sugar to mix in 2 beaten egg for the scrambled egg. I omitted the sugar and replaced with salt and pepper
  2. Garnish can be anything that you like.. shredded seaweed, pickled ginger, furikake, or anything you prefer
