Geeky Bento Lunches – Onigirazu おにぎらず

Oh, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a bento post.
Someone commented on my blog that I should make rice balls for my bento. I’m too lazy for that. ¬_¬” soooooo, I looked up Japanese rice ball fillings and ended up looking at this article about Japanese onigirazu おにぎらず… Wow a rice ball that was popular back in the  mid-1980’s from a Japanese manga “Cooking Papa” and has now made a comeback in Japan.
Sugoi! すごい!(Sorry, been watching a lot of Japanese dramas lately – trying to up my slang!). I had a look at some YouTube videos and came across one which I liked (will post this at the end).
This was my first try – Miss Vegan’s fried tofu which was smothered in soy sauce and some gem lettuce… Really don’t know what vegans like to eat, but fried tofu was top choice! She liked it but I think the rice was undercooked. Whoops! I did tell her before she ate it.


Mine was filled with lots of different ingredients… one had fried chicken pieces, kimchi, gem lettuce… and the other had tofu, kimchi and chicken. I put a lot of colour into mine… and I was stuffed!


The next evening I made more… this time I cooked the rice properly, added chicken pieces, ham slices, kimchi, mayo and cheese slices! Yeah, cheese slices! I never knew how good processed cheese tasted with rice. Amazing stuff!!! ^_^


I hope to make a few more in the future… maybe add fried egg and spam. ^_^v

Here’s the video I was talking about…
