In a glass bowl, crack the eggs and beat until it turns frothy
Now season the beaten eggs with soy sauce and sugar. Give it a good mix
Oil the frying pan with a cotton cloth or tissue paper and allow it to heat evenly. The pan should reach medium temperature before pouring the eggs
Now pour a thin layer of egg mixture into the pan and tilt quickly to spread the mixture to coat the pan
Allow the egg mixture to set at the bottom. While the top part is still soft, gently start rolling the eggs into a log from one side to another
Oil the pan again with a cotton cloth or tissue paper and move the rolled omelet to the farthest side of the pan
Pour the thin layer of egg mixture again into the pan and make sure to spread the mixture underneath the rolled omelet. It helps to glue the omelet and to roll it properly
Roll again once the egg mixture sets at the bottom and start rolling it towards the end of the pan. Repeat the process until your egg mixture is finished. Note: The quantity of egg mixture used here gave 5 layers in a round frying pan but it may create more layers if you use a tamagoyaki pan.
Now remove the rolled omelet from the pan and transfer it to a cutting board and allow it to cool down. Cooling down the rolled omelet helps to slice them perfectly
Slice the Tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette) into circular pieces. Now the Japanese Rolled Omelette is ready for you to taste and enjoy
