Today’s Recipe Special: Tamagoyaki
Tamagoyaki 卵焼き (literally ‘grilled egg’) can also be called tamago or dashimaki). It is a type of Japanese omelette made by rolling together several layers of cooked egg. These usually are prepared in a rectangular omelette pan called a makiyakinabe (however a circular pan can create the same results).
There are several types of tamago. Tamago is made by combining eggs, rice vinegar, and sometimes sugar or soy sauce. Additionally, sake is used in some recipes. An alternative version includes a mix of shrimp puree, grated mountain yam, sake and egg, turned into a custard-like cake.
Ingredients: (Japanese ingredients are not needed.)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon carrot, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Spring onion, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning
- Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add in milk and about ½ teaspoon of salt. Whisk until combined.
- Pass through a fine sieve to remove. Chalaza is known to contain cholesterol and it’s frequently removed for finer texture of dish.
- Add in carrot, onion, spring onion, and pepper and stir until combined.
- Lightly grease a frying pan with vegetable oil, and heat the frying pan. Then pour in 1/2 egg mixture and cook it over low heat until half done.
- Roll omelette half way up to the middle. And if there is not enough oil, lightly grease the pan each time you roll up.
- Add in ¼ egg mixture to the side of unrolled omelet. And cook until half done. Roll again half way up and move the egg roll to the center of the pan. And add in the remaining egg mixture and cook until half done. And finally roll all the way up.
- Transfer to a cutting board. When an egg roll is hot, it’s easily broken, so let cool before cutting.
- Slice into bite-size pieces. And serve.
I made this for breakfast this morning. Soooo good.
Understanding that organized religion has a negative and controlling influence on the world is not the same thing as being obsessed with destroying islam and islamic people.
onelookvasectomy said: are these expensive to deal with? i love em but don’t wanna buy one and kill it etc
It depends on what stage you start the process, if you grow from the seed it costs almost nothing, but it takes upwards of 20 years to get anywhere with it. Or you can start from a cutting, seedling or sapling which will take significantly less time, but costs more if you buy it. And you can get starter kits from nurseries, bonsai sellers etc, which come with most of the bits and pieces you need. The most expensive thing is the tools, pots, and buying trees that are already grown.
They do require a fair amount of looking after, especially certain trees that aren’t equipped for the Australian climate, but not so much that you have to devote your whole life to it. And you can always just do native Bonsai that will deal with the climate better. Patience is probably more important than money.
Suggested to Iona that she gets me a military surplus soviet ushanka for my birthday, she just turned around and went “nope. You are not being that guy.”
She’s a keeper.
