This is a savoury recipe for Japanese egg rolls. While it is often a side-dish or appetizer of a Japanese bento meal, I also love to eat it on its own as a satisfying and filling low-carb meal.

The key ingredients such as eggs, carrots and shallots are common items in the kitchen pantry. You can adapt the ingredients according to what you have – sometimes I use ebikko (prawn roe) instead of carrots, and baby spinach instead of spring onions.

I struggled to describe the steps of rolling the egg in words, so I made a two-minute video for this recipe. This is my first video so there is much room for improvement, but hopefully it conveyed the key steps of rolling the omelette. If you would like to see more video recipes, thumbs up the video on YouTube and subscribe to my channel. Thank you!

  8. Hi there!
    May I know where you got your Tamayogaki Pan? And where to get powedered dashi?


    • My Tamayogaki pan is ASD brand, I got it from Isetan Scotts at a sale, but it is commonly found everywhere (like Giant, CK Tangs etc). I personally find it quite lightweight and filmsy though, but it certainly is inexpensive and gets the work done.

    • as for the powdered dashi, you can buy it from the Japanese dried goods section of any supermarket (NTUC, Cold Storage etc). It’s usually in a bottled or box form.

  9. Can we omit the dashi stock?

  10. Can’t wait to try! but what if I don’t have the Tamagoyaki pan (18 by 13 cm/7.25 by 5.10 in), can I use normal frying pan?

    • Yes, you can use a square pan (if you have a happy call pan, you can use that but half the working area). If it’s a round pan, refer my previous comment reply for a youtube link guide.
