Do you want to try something new for breakfast? A Japanese omelette called tamagoyaki will surely serve as an interesting novelty in your kitchen. I love to try new breakfast recipes on a Saturday morning just like this sweet potato and goat cheese frittata.
Tamagoyaki – better than regular scrambled eggs?
If you are already tired of your usual omelettes or scrambled eggs, tamagoyaki will surprise you with its character and unique taste. What gives this interesting breakfast a specific taste is soy sauce and mirin. Mirin is a type of sweet Japanese rice wine.
If it is difficult for you to get mirin, you can basically replace it with rice vinegar. Therefore, use a little bit more sugar in this recipe.
Tamagoyaki requires a bit of skill, as it is necessary to form a roll, which will be just cooked perfectly by gradually adding our egg mixture. There are even adequate rectangular pans for this recipe. You can check out some tamago pans. However, we don’t need one as we can also make this unique omelette in a standard pan.
How to prepare tamagoyaki
After preparing the egg mixture, lightly rub the pan with oil and add the first batch of eggs to the pan to cover the entire surface. If the mixture hardens nicely, carefully roll the eggs from one side of the pan to the other to form a roll.
Then add another batch of eggs and raise the rolled omelette to let the mixture get under it. If the newly added egg mixture hardens again, roll the omelette along with the eggs. Repeat this process until you have used all the egg mixture and the omelette will increase in volume beautifully.
You can use a sheet of nori in this recipe, which is also a popular version. Serve tamagoyaki with grated white radish (daikon).Print
