Finely chop the ham, onion and green pepper. Mince the carrot. The dish is called Chicken Rice, but this time, we are using ham.
Put the rice in the rice cooker and add enough water to cook the rice on the firm side. Add the ingredients marked ● and the ham, carrot, onion and half the amount of green pepper, and then switch the cooker on.
When the rice is done you can wrap it in egg to make omurice. This time I mixed in butter-flavoured egg.
Make the egg in a frying pan when the rice is ready. Melt 1 teaspoon of butter, then add the beaten egg. Leave it for a few seconds, then quickly mix it up.
Make a fluffy tamagoyaki, and set it aside on a plate.
Season the remaining green pepper with salt and pepper (not listed), and stir-fry in the same frying pan (no need to add oil).
Add the egg and green pepper to the rice and mix it in.
It's nice with extra ketchup (not listed). Add lots if you prefer a strong flavours.

Story Behind this Recipe
Stir-fried ketchup rice is high in calories, so I always make it in the rice cooker. My son likes strong flavors, so I always add a little ketchup to the rice when it's done. I sometimes make omurice, but my son prefers the egg mixed in.
This time I used ham, but if you are using chicken, slice it into small pieces, season it with salt and pepper, and cook it with the rice in the rice cooker. Green pepper browns when cooked, so I stir-fry half the amount and add it at the end for a nice, colorful finish. Of course, you can just cook it all in the rice cooker if you want!
