Tamagoyaki (Rolled Japanese Omelette) With Shiso Leaves

Tamagoyaki (Rolled Japanese Omelette) With Shiso Leaves

You always have to think up new things for everyday bentos. I tried wrapping shiso leaves into slightly sweet tamagoyaki (Japanese omelettes).


1 teaspoon
a pinch
Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
Shiso leaves
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Mix the eggs and flavoring ingredients. Oil a tamagoyaki pan with oil, and pour in half of the egg mixture.
2. Mix the egg a little in the pan towards the center with cooking chopsticks so that it will be fluffy. Spread 2 leaves on top of the egg, and roll up the egg from the edge.
3. Push the rolled egg to one side, and pour in the rest of the egg mixture. Spread the remaining 2 shiso leaves on top, and roll up.
4. When it's all rolled up, cook until done.
5. Let it cool, and slice.
6. Perfect for bentos.
