③ Heat a tamagoyaki pan and add just enough sesame oil to spread thinly in the pan. Pour in 1/4 of the egg mixture. When the egg is half-cooked and the edges are fully cooked, use a pair of cooking chopsticks to roll up the egg toward you. Push the rolled-up egg to the side of the pan away from you and add another 1/4 of the egg mixture. Let it cook as described above and roll as described above. Do this two more times.
