Hi, it’s Yuto (@sudachi.recipe) again. Today’s dish is Chicken Mince and Egg, Three Coloured Donburi rice bowl! And it’s easy too!
What’s in a Three Coloured Donburi?
3色 (sanshoku) means 3 colours and 丼ぶり (donburi) means rice bowl. For this dish, it refers to:
- Mince → Brown
- Scrambled egg → Yellow
- Boiled veg → Green
But even though 3 colours commonly refer to these ingredients, the ingredients can vary by region and family.
Some people put salmon (pink) and make it 4 colours even!
Sanshoku Donburi for Lunch
Because it’s a colourful dish, this is also a classic option for a bento box (lunch box).
You can sometimes find it in Japanese convenience store’s bento boxes too.
Alright, let’s enjoy this classic!
