It’s a sweetened Japanese rolled omelette that looks like golden fluffy little bars. It is very liked for its quite sweet flavour and crumbly texture. The process involves rolling thin omelettes carefully and folding them into a stacked log, which is then sliced. This is a common side-dish called Dashimaki Tamago, and it appears frequently in Japanese-style breakfasts and lunch boxes.


Here is the recipe from our official supporter Kummy, making it easy for you to prepare Japanese Rolled Omelette.


3 eggs

3 tbsp dashi broth 

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp mirin

2 tbsp vegetable oil

3 cm daikon radish, shredded

soy sauce




  1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add dashi broth, soy sauce, mirin and mix everything well.
  2. Apply a thin layer of oil on a pan with a paper towel and heat over medium temperature.
  3. As soon as the pan is heated, pour in 1/4 of the egg and spread it evenly.
  4. When the bottom of the egg has set but is still soft on top, roll the egg into a log shape from one side to the other.
  5. Apply more oil to the pan and repeat this process until you finish the egg mixture. Take it out of the pan and let it cool down.
  6. Peel and grate the daikon radish and gently squeeze the water out. Pour soy sauce over the grated daikon and serve with the pleasing omelette.
