I have a cookbook with about two dozen different recipes for Japanese takikomi gohan (cook-add rice) for electric rice cooker, some of which are very traditional, including sekihan (red beans) which is made for celebratory events and matsutake gohan (dashi, soy, sake, salt & marinated mushrooms). Not much info in the entry, but here's the wiki...

Give it a try, the result might be good. Even if you are going against traditions. Maybe you're the first one brave enough to try it! No harm in that is there

I say do it!! And when you've done it, let me know. If it works I would definitely be a big fan of this dish. It sounds great!

One suggestion though, maybe fold the egg whites through the rice 5 mins before the end of steaming.

I always used to cook my rice on a stove but recently found that you can cook a really amazing steamed rice in the microwave. Glass bowl, add rice (having washed it a few times until the waters pretty much clear), add double rice of boiling water and pop in the micro wave for 10mins. Voila! Light, fluffy rice. :)

Egg fried rice is a big fav in our house. We'd normally fry off the rice with eggs, chicken stock, a variety of veg (cabbage, spring onion, spinach, carrots peas etc) a tblspn of oyster sauce and a generous helping of soya sauce.

Even better, if you use red cabbage, you can turn the whole thing pink/purple/blue. Makes it really entertaining for little'ns :D

Woohooo!! High Score of 87,650 on the Cox Cookies & Cake game. Magic!!
