Quick Onigiri Egg Stuffed rice balls


A bit of a story about this recipe

A certain 11 year old child is used to very good food and looks forward to his post school snack with a lot of expectation of novelty and quality. A certain mother is happy to create new foods for him but the novelty of that wears off rather fast! So when the child is due to come home in 15 minutes and the mother is in a bit of a harried state, she walks into the kitchen, looks at available ingredients and onigiri rice balls get created 😊

My apologies to all the Japanese out there who should rightly be rolling their eyes in horror at calling this creation Onigiri rice balls. The only linkage is rice in a crafted shape. Rest is desperate attempt to create some fun yet nutritious food for the child.

Since the result was much appreciated by the child in reference, his father and a few of his friends- you all can have the pleasure of adding it to your repertoire of fancy food with minimal effort!


  • Nature Nudge’s Spicy Soleier Egg- 3
  • 3 tbsp each green and red capsicum chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp green coriander leaves – chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp olives chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp each onions and spring onion greens chopped fine
  • Precooked rice- any sort that you have at hand
  • Pepper, salt, any seasoning of your choice
  • 1 tsp mayo
  • ½ tsp tomato ketchup



  • Fine chop the Spicy Soleier Eggs and all the vegetables
  • Mix in a bowl with mayo and ketchup as well as spices to taste. Do taste before adding additional salt as the egg and mayo are already salted
  • Hold your hand in a cup shape and pack in rice into your palm, pressing it down firmly. Also create a bit of an indent in the rice.
  • Place 1.5 tbsp of the egg and vege mix in the hollow
  • Now cover with more rice and mould into a ball shape, encasing the vege egg mix inside
  • Press down firmly to shape the ball with both hands
  • Sprinkle black sesame on for a nice look
  • Serve with dipping soy and sesame sauce
  • Watch with glee as fussy kids eat probiotic foods without having a clue they just helped their gut bacteria.
