The recipe for Ajitama (soy sauce flavored eggs)

Ajitama is a wonderful side dish for everyone.

Ajitama are eggs with soy sauce flavor. You have seen it maybe on Ramen as topping. I enjoy eating it when I drink beer. It’s very easy to cook, so I would like to share the recipe with you.


  • Eggs
  • Water: 4 tea spoons
  • Soy sauce: 2 tee spoons
  • Mirin: 2 tee spoons
  • Sugar: 1 tea spoon
  • Cooking wine: 1 tea spoon


  • Boil the eggs 7 minutes (put the eggs in the hot water after it starts boiling).
  • Put the eggs into cold water. It makes it easier to peel them.
  • Wait 5 minutes and peel the shell from the eggs.
  • Put all ingredients except the eggs into a small pot.
  • When the sauce starts boiling turn off the head and wait until it has cooled down.
  • Put the eggs and sauce into a ziplock. Keep it in the fridge for 1 day. And you can start eating.
