The children-shaped rice balls (uupps ;)!!) are dyed with decofuri, except the yellow tiger suit, which I coloured with curry powder. As far as I know decofuri is made with natural ingredients, such as edamame for green, pumpkin for orange, etc. But I am not so sure, please do correct me if I am wrong!
All onigiris are filled with chicken katsu with mayo. Eating plain rice is not very yummy as know. So this bento is absolutely not bland in taste :). The 100 numerals are from carrot and cheese. It could have looked much better if I had numeral cutters...:(.
In the other box, I had some teriyaki drumsticks, tamagoyaki (rolled omelet), three radishes and pan-fried prawn and kimchi fritters. My husband loved the fritters - which unfortunately don't look so visible in the pictures. The recipe is very simple even though I don't have the exact measurements, so the recipe below is just based on my estimation). I am very Asian when I cook, I always use my gut feelings - probably the reason why I never really succeed in baking ;).
Prawn and Kimchi Fritters
- 100 prawns, chopped
- 50 grams kimchi, chopped
- 1 egg
- 100 gram flour
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped green onions
- 1 tablespoon chopped red onions
Mix all ingredients well. Drop fritter batter by spoonfuls into an oiled pan and fry until both sides of the fritters are golden brown.
