Dashi-maki Tamago Recipe

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Do you have a rectangular egg pan/broiler which you aren't sure how to use? Well, yes you could make a rectangular pancake or omelet, but I'm sure you'll find it more fun and useful if you make this! :)

Here's what you need:
3-4 tbsp of shiro-dashi/combu tsuyu plus same amount of water (or I think any soup broth would work too)
1 tbsp mayonnaise
A little dash of salt and sugar
3 eggs

Mix all the ingredients aside from eggs.

Add eggs, and mix well. 

Pour 3/4 of the mixture on heated pan.

Then fold it thrice, like this before the egg becomes cooked.
This would make our Dashi-maki juicer.

Repeat the steps.

Until it becomes likes this.
This turned out to be not that perfect, but yeah, the shape should be something like this. :p

You may add it as an additional viand to an obento to add color!
Make it into a heart shape like this too! :)

A little advice in making obentos:
That in Japanese Obentos, colors and textures are important. There should preferably be Yellow - thus it is a basic option to have eggs on an obento, Green - for veggies, Brown - meat that is most probably the main viand, and Red -tomatoes, sweet peppers, etc. Also make or cut them into different shapes to make it look more fun and eye-catchy. Remember to fill in the spaces as much as possible so the viands would stay put on their places too. Try making a Japanese-y Obento the next time you're making your lunch box!
