I've got multiple comments about Tamagoyakis, Japanese sweet omelettes.
According to some research, Japanese people only started to eat egg during the Edo period (16th to 18th century). Even then, I'm sure it was a luxury item. Now tamagoyakis are often made as a form of comfort food. Moms and Dads pack it in children's lunches a.k.a. obento. Every time I eat a tamagoyaki I always reminisce my mom's homemade lunches back in elementary school.
Just like an onigiri (rice ball), it's a dish which reminds you of your family. Somehow tastes different depending on the family though the ingredients being used are probably the same.
Ingredients being used are eggs and sugar with a dash of oil on the pan. Use a small pan for perfect results.
It may seem difficult at first but practice makes perfect. The more you try, the more easier it gets. I promise!
As I mentioned earlier, I sometimes make these at night, cut them, freeze them in saran wrap and take it for lunch in its frozen state in the morning. By lunch time, they are defrosted and taste delicious!
They go perfectly with rice; especially onigiri. I hope you check out the recipe I posted for this dish and try it out yourself!
