Story Behind this Recipe
My children love soboro with rice. They often request it for their bentos.
Please mix and stir the egg very well while you're cooking it. When you think it's turned into fine soboro, keep mixing a bit longer and it will turn very fine. My children like the egg to be on the sweet side, but adults may want to adjust the flavor so it's a bit more savory.
