One of the most popular Japanese side dish (Okazu) for lunch box!
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.
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.
Oh, sometimes I add little bit of green bits.
Today, I had beans, so chopped them and added into egg.
Prepare pan, pour little bit of oil and heat it.
Then pour the egg into the pan.
First, pour half of egg.
Then start rolling it !
Then bring the rolled egg into your side.
Start again! Pour rest of egg into the pan.
and spread it all over the pan.
Then start rolling again.
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!
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.
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 !!
