So you like Doraemon?
I didn’t use rice this round to make Doraemon Bento as this is a one dish item – fried rice. So for Doraemon character, I used mashed potatoes instead.
I woke up a little later than usual so I needed something pretty quick and decided to just make fried rice with leftover rice and ingredients from my fridge. I added mushrooms, crabstick, vegetables, bacon and egg to the fried rice.
For Doraemon, I steamed the mashed potatoes then coloured them with some icing colours. I use icing colours as I only need to use very little to achieve the colours.
Method of shaping and colouring the mashed potatoes is as per the technique shared in my Kawaii Bento cookbook.
I also added some carrot flowers to the bento, lettuce as well as some pasta alphabets.
Since this is Doraemon Bento, the pasta alphabets spelt ‘Doraemon’.
Today’s Dorameon Bento was packed in the bento box from Afternoon Tea Japan.
I love the mix of the wooden lid cover which doubles up as a mini tray and the white box.
