Dashimaki Tamago

Atsuyaki Tamagao

  • 1 block (200g) silken tofu 
  • 1/2 cup (200ml) water
  • 1 tbsp (12g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (60g) split mungbean flour
  • 2 tbsp (14g) rice flour
  • 1/4 tsp (2g) baking powder
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast (5g), optional
  • 1/2 tsp black salt
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • pinch of turmeric, optional for colour


  1. Add all of the dashimaki tamago OR atsuyaki tamago ingredients in the order listed to a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings and salt. 
  2. Heat a pan over medium-low heat. Brush the entire pan with oil. Once the pan is hot, pour a thin layer of the egg mixture into the pan and swirl to coat the entire pan. Cook until the top is set and no longer shiny. Use cooking chopsticks and run it around the edges of the pan to release the egg. Use a spatula or cooking chopsticks and roll the omelette from the top down.
  3. Push the rolled egg back to the top and then brush oil over the entire pan again. Pour a thin layer of the egg mixture over the pan and swirl to coat the entire pan again. Once cooked, roll the omelette from the top down again and then push it back to the top. Repeat this process a total of 6 times. 
  4. For the final round, cook until the outside is slightly browned. Turn off the heat and transfer the tamagoyaki to a bamboo sushi matt. Roll it up and let it rest for 5 minutes to shape and set. 
  5. In the mean time, grate daikon and squeeze out excess liquid. 
  6. Slice the tamagoyaki into 6 equal pieces. Serve with grated daikon, soy sauce and enjoy!
