4. How to Make Rilakkuma Omurice
This recipe is very easy. I used just a few simple ingredients available around you. But the only thing you need is patience! hehe Rilakkuma (which means relaxing bear in Japanese) is a very popular character in Japan. Omurice is omelette made with fried rice (ketchup flavored chicken rice) and usually topped with ketchup. I know you all like Kyaraben (character bento) but I decided to make it on a plate since you might not have a bento box at home. Of course you can pack it in your bento box :) Making Kyaraben is not that difficult. Just plan (draw picture) before you cook. Then you don't have to spend a lot of time cooking. I spent more time planning than cooking.
