Learn to make one of Japanese cuisine's favourite snack foods with this onigiri bento box recipe. Onigiri are balls of rice, usually wrapped with nori seaweed and containing a meat or vegetable filling. This recipe uses onigiri, tamagoyaki omelette, and cute octopus shaped sausages to make a kawaii and appealing bento box for lunch.


tamagoyaki egg omelette:
3 eggs
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp water

octopus-shaped sausages:
2 small sausages, such as chipolata or frankfurter

onigiri rice balls:
300g cooked rice
1 tsp roasted black sesame
1 tsp roasted white sesame
1 tsp shiso flakes
1 tsp sea salt



  1. Gently beat the eggs in a bowl then add the light soy sauce, honey, water and mix well.
  2. Heat an omelette pan or small frying pan over medium heat. Add oil generously using some greased kitchen roll. Pour a thin layer of the egg mixture into the pan. Pierce any air bubbles as they appear. Cook for ½-1 min. Roll the omelette into a log shape. Push the omelette to the top side of the pan and grease the pan again. Pour another thin layer of egg mixture and continue rolling. Repeat this process until the egg mixture is finished.
  3. Place the omelette on a bamboo mat or cutting board and shape gently. If using a cutting board use a towel or cling film to form the omelette into a round log. Let it stand for a few minutes. Cut omelette into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  4. Slice the sausages hallways only into four strips. Place the sausages into hot water and boil them until they float. Set aside.
  5. Wet your hands and rub a pinch of sea salt on both palms to help the rice from sticking. Scoop 200g of cooked warm rice and mould into 2 even sized triangular shaped onigiri using both hands. Coat one with white sesame seeds and the other with black sesame seeds.
  6. Place the last 100g cooked warm rice in a bowl and mix with the shiso flakes until evenly combined. Make another onigiri with this shiso rice mixture.
  7. Carefully pack the onigiri, tamagoyaki and octopus-shaped sausages into a bento box. Enjoy for lunch or a picnic.
