Some of you may know, some may not. Some Japanese owns real "eggpan" to make tamagoyaki.
Tamagoyaki is a Japanese side dish using beaten eggs(I use about 4 eggs) . As you see the diagram below, you pour the egg in the pan just enough to cover the whole surface. Then you fold the egg into 3(or 2 which ever), once the egg is on the edge you pour more egg and keep folding it. It may be time consuming process but this is like other culture enjoying omelette.
Another beauty of tamagoyaki is that you can mix beaten egg with 1-2 tbsp of:
- dashi(fish broth)
- soy sauce
- pureed seafood(which is used for New Years Day food)
Any flavor you like!
I've been using regular circle pan to make this but my mom got me the "official" pan as gift from Japan. Thank you!
