Then back to soup.
Cook some vegetable ( I used Daikon for this day) in dashi soup, and add fried tofu.
(For miso soup, you can put anything you like, that is good thing about miso soup. No rules)
Take some miso paste in the ladle. Then let it dissolve in the soup.

Tamago-yaki ~Japanese Rolled Egg~

One of the most popular Japanese side dish (Okazu) for lunch box!
It’s Tamago-yaki.
Everyone loves it.
It adds nice colour into your lunch ♪
I make it with Mirin & Shio-Koji. Sometimes with Dashi, sometimes with sugar.

It is not difficult to make!
Try for your tomorrow’s lunch.

Egg!

Then add Shio-Koji (option)
I think, this Shio-koji makes Tamago-yaki taste yummy and mild,
but this is not essential!

Then pour some Mirin ! This bring this Tamago-yaki nice and soft sweetness.

Beat them well.

Then…
Oh, sometimes I add little bit of green bits.
Today, I had beans, so chopped them and added into egg.

CIMG9187

Prepare pan, pour little bit of oil and heat it.

CIMG9182

Then pour the egg into the pan.
First, pour half of egg.

CIMG9189

Then start rolling it !

CIMG9190

CIMG9192

Then bring the rolled egg into your side.

CIMG9193

Start again! Pour rest of egg into the pan.

CIMG9194

and spread it all over the pan.

CIMG9195

Then start rolling again.

CIMG9197

Teda~~. Done!!

But if you make the rolled egg more nicely rolled shape,
you can use Makisu (rolling mat) !!
If your rolled egg didn’t go well, this rolling mat will fix it!
Try it when egg is still hot.

Wait until it cools down, then open it !
See? Nice and rolled!

CIMG9203

Then cut whatever your size.
I normally cut for lunch box size.

In lunch box, it looks like this.

Mmmmm, I need red or orange colour in this lunch box though.
CIMG9208

Or like this. Tamago-yaki is pretty popular thing in the lunch box.

Sometimes we have this Tamago-yaki as breakie.
Here is a very standerd Japanese breakie. Of course, will be served with rice and miso soup !!
