For the yellow colored rice I made egg fried rice by mixing rice, beaten egg, a bit of salt and fried until it turn kind of dry. For the Japanese rice, using chilled overnight or frozen rice could help the rice form stable and less sticky when frying it.
In this bento there are: mixed veggies, white rice shaped into a bunny, ears, cheeks, and heart decoration made out of ham, the mouth/nose part made out of turkey, egg sheet blanket, crispy orange chicken, and finally nori seaweed for facial features!
This was my lunch today! I wanted to try something that was not my normal style bento. So I tried out a few new things. It contains:
Top Layer: Takoyaki! It is topped with home made Tonkatsu Sauce, Chives, and Mayo (Takoyaki is Fried Octopus Balls. It is made out of boiled Octopus tentacle and other ingredients. *Tip for frozen Takoyaki: Put them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes after warming up, it helps to give a crispy crunch to the outside while keeping the inside warm and gooey)
Bottom Layer: Blanched Spinach with Shoyu (Soy Sauce), Sesame Oil and Seeds. Hard Boiled Quail Eggs Green Apple Bunny Japanese Style Potato Salad (I hate American Potato salad so I was skeptical about this version, but it is DELICIOUS!)
