Tips and Information

• To save time in the mornings, prepare big batches of rice ahead of time and store in the fridge.
• If you are not keen on eating raw eggs, you can poach or boil the egg for a couple of minutes before adding it to the bowl. Try to keep the egg as soft as possible, however.
• Try mixing and matching seasonings for different variations in flavour. Why not try adding furikake rice seasoning or seven spice pepper, or chopped spring onions?
