  • Artificial crabmeat (optional)
  • Shrimp roe (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • ½ Teaspoons Salt
  • Oil
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Wash the sushi rice twice before cooking

    Step 2

    Add the water. It should be on the 1 cup bar on your electric rice cooker.

    Step 3

    Mix the vinegar sugar and salt (only the rice part) set aside whilst the rice is cooking (more than 10 mins) make sure everything's dissolved.

    Step 4

    I use 2 extra large eggs. For those with normal eggs use 3. Add sugar and salt to the eggs.

    Step 5

    Beat the eggs to combine.

    Step 6

    Try to make the least bubble u can

    Step 7

    It's a good idea to have a small spoon to measure the eggs when u cook for even layers of tamago yaki.

    Step 8

    Pure the oil on to a non-stick pan. Use kitchen tissue to spread Around and get rid of the excess fat.

    Step 9

    Just a thin coat of oil will do.

    Step 10

    Add the egg mixture to the heated pan.

    Step 11

    Roll the egg when the rim is coming off the pan don't wait until cooked or it won't stick together.

    Step 12

    How to roll the egg.

    Step 13

    Turn off the heat. Leave the egg roll on the pan for a while to cook it through. ( the inside should be cooked by now don't worry) this gives the tamago nice brownish colour.

    Step 14

    Check the rice. Open the lid to vent out the steam as it cooked. Turn off the machine don't leave it on the keep warm mode.

    Step 15

    Break up the rice gently. Close the lid wait 5 mins.

    Step 16

    Add the vinegar mixture

    Step 17

    Fold the rice

    Step 18

    Cut tamago yaki into thin slices

    Step 19

    Lay down the nori sheet

    Step 20

    Add rice and the fillings.

    Step 21

    Roll! If possible use two hands and press down firmly.

    Step 22

    Cut into pieces and serve. Enjoy!
