It's easy to make authentic Japanese food at home with this classic Japanese omelette recipe. Tamagoyaki is slightly sweet and seasoned with soy sauce, mirin and dashi stock. It's a favourite in bento boxes and also makes an easy Japanese starter. Serve with shredded daikon and soy sauce for dipping.
For serious Japanese home cooks, you can buy a tamagoyaki frying pan - a rectangular non-stick frying pan used specifically for making this omelette. The pan is available to order online or can be found in some speciality shops, like Japan Centre.
