Learn how to make the perfect Japanese tamagoyaki (tamago) learning from my mistakes!! Japanese tamagoyaki is a popular Japanese egg omelette made with fluffy egg layers.

If you have ever made tamagoyaki before, you might have experienced that it ended up becoming burnt, too runny or having holes. haha

In this video, I will give you 4 tips to make a perfect Japanese tamagoyaki by reflecting on my mistakes!



<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 2 minutes

<Cook time> 5 minutes


3 eggs

1 tablespoon granulated sugar,

1 teaspoon mirin

½ teaspoon soy sauce.

¼ teaspoon fish stock powder


1.Whisk the three eggs until you reach a uniformed yellow color.

2. Add in the sugar, fish stock powder, mirin and soy sauce. Mix them well.

3. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Grease the pan well. Pour ¼ of the egg mixture. Spread the mixture evenly on the pan. Reduce the heat to low. Once cooked start rolling from the top towards you little by little with the chopsticks.

Grease the pan again and then slide the rolled egg omelette to the top. Pour ⅓ of remaining egg mixture into the pan. Lift the rolled egg omelette so that the uncooked egg mixture goes under the roll. Once cooked, rtart rolling again towards you.

4. Repeat the same process twice.

5. Transfer to a sushi mat or a clean cloth. Cover the egg omelette to rest. When it’s cool enough to touch, cut into pieces. Enjoy with grated daikon radish if you like.
