The Pompompurin cafe in Singapore is now long gone, but fans who are missing it can recreate their own version of the character-themed eatery at home; Sanrio has just shared a Pompompurin omurice recipe with easy step-by-step instructions, and the end result looks ridiculously cute.
This recipe was originally written in 2018 for Strawberry News - a magazine by Sanrio themselves - and has since been reshared by Sanrio Singapore.
Read on to find out how to make your own Pompompurin omurice!
For Pompompurin omurice:
- 1g of turmeric powder
- 1 cup of rice
- 200ml of water
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- 1/4 red, yellow, or orange pepper
- ¼ carrot
- 8 green peas
- 5 lettuce leaves
- 1 mushroom
- 1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup
- 1 chocolate decorating pen
- 100g of white sauce (also known as Bechamel sauce)
- 70ml of milk
Step 1: Add the turmeric powder to the rice, stir until the colour is even, and leave it to cook in a rice cooker.
Step 2: Shape the rice into little balls for the ears, head, hands, and body according to the diagram above, and arrange them on the bed of lettuce leaves - apart from the hands which will be placed later. You can tear the lettuce up into smaller pieces if you wish.
Step 3: Beat the eggs with the milk until well-mixed.
Step 4: Melt butter on a pan on high heat and spread it around. Pour the egg mixture in and swirl for 20 seconds before reducing the heat to a medium setting.
Step 5: When the egg becomes viscous enough on the surface, slide it over Pompompurin’s body like a blanket, with the help of a spatula. Fold the edge that’s closest to Pompompurin’s face 1cm down.
Step 6: Heat up the white sauce in a pot using medium heat, and pour over the omelette with a spoon.
Step 7: Cut the mushroom in half, and cut the other vegetables into the shape of flowers. It will help if you have a vegetable-cutting mold. Cook all the veggies in the microwave for 40 seconds at 600W.
Step 8: Place the mushroom on Pompompurin’s head as a hat, and jazz up the blanket with the other vegetables. Arrange his hands on top of the blanket and decorate the empty space on the omelette between his hands using the ketchup.
Step 9: Draw Pompompurin’ s sleeping face using the chocolate pen. If you don’t have a chocolate pen, you can always use chocolate sauce and a toothpick.
We love how adorable Pompompurin looks underneath his egg omelette blanket, and the fact that this arrangement looks very similar to what you'd get at the actual Pompompurin Cafe in Harajuku, Tokyo. The decorating process might be just a little tedious, but in terms of ingredients and techniques, it's fairly simple. Give it a go!
