Tamagoyaki or 玉子焼き in Japanese or we called Japanese Omelet Rolls. This side dish menu is require a technique to make the roll come out perfectly. I have been practicing for quite a while and that is how the picture look, what do you think?

Tamagoyaki is Japanese side dish menu and it can be in a bento box or on a regular side dish or can serve as a main dish with grated daikon on the side and it will be service with other main dish such as eel fish teriyaki over the rice or called "donburi".

However, there is a Japanese rectangle pan style that design to use for preparing this Tamagoyaki and this pan will help make this egg roll even easier for the beginner. If you don't have one just use the regular sauce pan. When I first start make this side dish, I didn't have a special pan for it. I use the regular sauce pan and I use the smallest pan I can have in my cabinet. The small sauce pan help me make the roll easier than using a large sauce pan.
