Tamagoyaki from Kofuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti)
“What you will need:(Serves three people)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp water/milk (the milk will make it more fluffy)
Salt to season
Finely chopped spinach
Fresh, pickled ginger
Finely chopped green and red peppers
Grated Daikon (Japanese radish)
How to Cook It:
1 Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk in all of the other ingredients.
2 Begin to heat up a small frying pan on LOW HEAT, or if you have it, a rectangular pan, and add a small amount of vegetable oil into it.
3 Pour your mixture into the pan. Once you pour it in, use some chopsticks, skewers, or a small spoon to mix the center to make sure that everyone doesn’t separate. Do not touch the edges.
4 Starting from the top, using a spatula, slowly begin to roll the tamagoyaki up. It should roll about 4-5 times. Be careful not to flip it over too hard or it will break and you don’t want that.
5 Go very slow in the step above. I do not recommend rolling it over more than six times. It will become too thick to roll up and break.
6 Go very slow in the step above. I do not recommend rolling it over more than six times. It will become too thick to roll up and break.
7 Once you have rolled it up all the way to the top of your pan, or to the side because that is fine too, gently flip the entire mixture over to make sure that both sides are cooked evenly.
8 It’s done! Cut into 2-3inch (5-8cm) pieces
9 dig in!
(Note:You can grate the Daikn from above and put a small amount on top of the tamagoyaki. This is a very common and traditional way that it is served.)
(Double Note:You are dealing with both raw eggs. Be sure to wash your hands constantly!)
That’s all there is to Tamagoyaki! Doesn’t it look delicious? Take your time with this one because if you rush it, it will just become fried eggs if it loses its shape. After the second flip/turn over though, you should have it. It’s straightforward as long as you pay attention.
