Step 2 and 3
Line a plate with Plastic wrap, and pour onto it the mixture of eggs and mayonnaise.

Cook in the microwave (500w) for 1 minute and 10 seconds, without covering the mixture with Plastic wrap.

If you cook the mixture in the microwave as described in the recipe, the egg should come out soft and fluffy.

The cooking time for the egg will vary slightly depending on the size of the eggs. Feel free to adjust the time so that it comes out as soft or hard as you like.

Step 4
Serve the ketchup rice onto a plate, lay the egg on top, and add some ketchup over it.

If you want to arrange the omurice into a nice shape, as shown in the above photo: Peel the Plastic wrap off the egg cooked in step 3, then place the egg on top of the Plastic wrap once again. Place the ketchup rice on top of the egg, and then wrap the whole thing using the Plastic wrap, to arrange it into a neat shape.
