Tamagoyaki - or tamago or dashimaki and literally meaning 'grilled fried egg' - is a type of Japanese omelette made by rolling together several thin layers of cooked egg.
This perfectly-formed omelette traditionally appears on the menu at anytime during the day - from a luxurious Japanese breakfast alongside miso soup, rice, pickled veggies and fish, to lunchtime in a bento (Japanese lunch box), or even in a filling in sushi rolls.
There are several types of tamagoyaki, made by combining eggs, and sometimes sugar or soy sauce. Additionally, sake and mirin are used in some recipes. They are usually prepared in a rectangular omelette pan called a makiyakinabe.
