Tamago Nigiri Recipe

Tamago Nigiri Sushi
The Tamago Nigiri is a great starter to introduce children to sushi. The pretty little omelette draped over a bed of sushi rice, wrapped in a ribbon of Nori makes it look like a fun snack to have. Since everything in this Sushi is cooked, children won't shy away from this sushi with the reason of "questionable ingredients". It's so easy to make that you can even invite the kids in on the fun of making them. Watch the smiles of pride as they gobble down something that they made themselves.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups Sushi Rice
  2. 4 Eggs
  3. 3 tbsp Mirin (low alcohol rice wine)
  4. 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  5. 1 tbsp sugar
  6. 1 rectangular pan
  7. 1 nori sheet
PREPARATION
  1. Make sure that your hands are always moist and cold before you start to shape your Nigiri. Prepare ice water with a dash of rice vinegar for you to rinse your hands with.
DIRECTIONS
Making the topping
  1. Mix in all the ingredients together to make egg mixture. Make sure to use a fork or chopsticks, not a whisk, so you don't infuse so much air into the mixture
  2. Grease your pan with cooking oil and then heat over medium heat
  3. Once the pan is hot, turn the heat settings to low. Pour in the egg mixture to fry. The batter should roughly be 1cm deep.
  4. Once the egg begins to set, carefully roll the omelette towards you.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 until you run out of the egg mixture.
  6. Once your tamago is ready, place it on the white mat to tighten the tamago. Take the tightened tamago to a cutting board and slice into 2cm thick slices. Set aside to cool.
Making the Tamago Nigiri
  1. Grab 20g of sushi rice. Roll and shape until you create a rectangular base with rounded corners.
  2. Lay a piece of sliced egg on top of your rice base
  3. Cut the nori into 1cm wide strips. Wrap a strip around the rice and egg. If the strip is too long, cut to adjust to the correct size.
  4. Repeat until you finish the rest of the egg slices and rice.
  5. Serve with a dipping sauce of wasabi and soy sauce
