      Course of action

      Note: Typically you make one portion at a time in a small pan that fits the diameter of the bowl. In this way, you can feed the chicken/egg mixture directly on top of the steamed rice. In that case, use only half of the ingredients from point 3 of the recipe and then repeat with the other half.
      However, you can easily make the entire portion in one round in a larger pan and then divide half into separate bowls.

      • Cook the rice according to instructions.
      • Cut the chicken into smaller pieces and slice the onion.
      • Mix the dashi, mirin, soy, sugar and salt in a small frying pan.
      • Put the chicken and the onion in the pan and put the lid on.
      • Bring the contents to a boil and keep the lid on until cooked through.
      • Beat the eggs and pour it over the chicken.
      • Turn off the heat and put the lid back on.
      • Once the egg is cooked, the dish is complete. The egg should still be soft and slightly runny.
      • Put the rice in the bottom of the bowl and top with the entire contents of the pan.

      Tip: Can be served with chopped spring onion or mitsuba, which is Japan's answer to parsley - can be found in specialist shops.
