  1. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a chopstick until they are completely mixed. Be careful not to overmix.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine dashi broth, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and salt. Mix until all ingredients are dissolved.
  3. Then combine the egg and seasoning ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  4. Heat the tamagoyaki pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, grease the pan with the help of a brush.
  5. Pour ¼ of the egg mixture into the pan. Spread the egg mixture evenly into the pan. When the egg is completely on the bottom and the top is damp, lift the egg from one side with the help of a chopstick. Roll the egg using a spatula.
  6. While the rolled egg is in the pan, oil the pan again. Pour in ¼ of the remaining egg mixture. Lift up the egg roll and let the mixture flow under it. Roll the egg again. Repeat the same process with the rest of the egg mixture.
  7. Slice the prepared egg roll.
  8. Serve with shiso leaves, soy sauce, or daikon radish.

  • You may just use regular Japanese dashi soup stock instead of mirin and soy sauce. For a fantastic flavor, use one sachet of dashi stock powder.
  • After the tamagoyaki has been cooked, lay it on a sushi rolling mat and wrap it up firmly to make a sturdy roll. This is a great idea, especially if you're making tamagoyaki for the first time and want to make sure the roll is tight and easy to cut.
  • For added flavor, consider using various items like spring onions and nori seaweed. Just be sure to finely chop them before adding them to the mix.
  • You don't need a special square frying pan to prepare tamagoyaki, although it could be simpler than using a regular round one.
  • Because you'll be rolling extra layers on top, the inner rolls don't have to be tidy. The initial few rolls from the tamagoyaki's core, so don't worry if the layers aren't exactly aligned.
  • Make sure the pan is fully coated with oil, if you don't want your egg mix to adhere to it.
  • With a tiny bit of the egg mixture, check the temperature of the pan. To make sure the pan is hot enough, watch the egg sizzle.
  • Maintain a constant temperature of the pan. Because the thin omelet layer must be rolled up fast before it is entirely cooked, there is no opportunity to adjust the heat. Moving the pan nearer and further away from the fire is the best way to adjust the heat.
