Japanese Rolled Omelette Dashimaki Tamago 玉子焼 is a classic dish made by a special rolling technique to form several layers of cooked egg. The main equipment is the 'makiyakinabe' which is a rectangular pan. The key ingredient is eggs, sugar and rice vinegar. If you order Nigiri sushi or sushi rolls, you will see it and you can find it served as a breakfast too. This is also a children's favourite.

5 eggs
2 teaspoons sugar
½ cup dashi
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Japanese soy sauce
vegetable oil for cooking
parsley sprigs for garnish (optional)

Here's a video to show you the special cooking technique of rolling the eggs mixture in the pan:
