By Food E Fare

Tamago Kake Gohan, also known as TKG, is a simple Japanese dish consisting of hot rice topped with a raw egg, soy sauce, and sometimes other seasonings. Here's a basic recipe:


  • Cooked Japanese rice (hot)
  • Fresh raw egg (ideally pasteurized)
  • Soy sauce (to taste)
  • Optional: Green onions, nori (seaweed), furikake (rice seasoning), sesame seeds, or other toppings of your choice


  • Cook the Japanese rice according to package instructions or using your preferred method. Make sure it's hot and freshly cooked when serving.
  • Crack a fresh raw egg into a small bowl, ensuring that there are no shell fragments.
  • Pour the hot rice into a serving bowl.
  • Immediately after, pour the raw egg over the hot rice. The heat from the rice will partially cook the egg as you mix it in.
  • Drizzle soy sauce over the rice and egg mixture according to your taste preferences.
  • Gently mix everything together, ensuring that the egg coats the rice evenly.
  • If desired, sprinkle additional toppings such as thinly sliced green onions, shredded nori, furikake, or sesame seeds on top for added flavor and texture.
  • Serve immediately while still hot.


It's essential to use fresh, high-quality eggs for this dish, and some people prefer using pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk of foodborne illness. Additionally, Tamago Kake Gohan is often enjoyed as a simple and comforting breakfast or light meal in Japan. Adjust the seasoning and toppings according to your taste preferences. Enjoy!
