Guide for Tamago:

  1. Heat pan to medium and oil pan with the sponge or small paper towel.

  3. When 80% done (still runny), start to fold making about an 1 inch width rectangle.
  4. Oil pan and ladle the next layer and make sure to let some of the new layer under the folded egg to prevent overcooking.
