Put the cucumbers in a bowl with the vinegar, sugar, chilli flakes and a pinch of salt. Toss and leave while you cook the omelette.
Heat a little vegetable oil in a pan then fry the vegetables for a few minutes until soft. Tip in the rice and stir, then add the soy sauce, 1/2 the ginger and stir-fry until hot.
Beat the eggs with the mirin, the remaining ginger and a few drops of sesame oil.
Heat more vegetable oil in a small, non-stick frying pan then pour in 1/2 the beaten eggs. Cook gently until the base is set but the top is still moist. Put on a warmed plate and make another omelette with the rest of the egg.
Spoon the rice mixture over each omelette, fold and serve with the pickled cucumber and a scattering of sesame seeds, if you like.
