Homemade okonomiyaki - so easy!


Okono

So, I recently discovered an awesome YouTube channel called Waoryu Only In Japan, and have been binge-watching episodes over the past few days. And somehow, as a result, I developed an intense craving for Japanese street food... especially after the Dotonburi and Hirohima Okonomiyaki lunch experiment episodes! I decided that I HAD to make some Okonomiyaki, and so I YouTubed a few recipes to see if I could make it at home. To my delight, okonomiyaki IS very easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand, except for dashi and bonito flakes. But, as always, I improvised and the results was just as delicious.

Check out my recipe after the jump...

Serving: 1 large okonomiyaki for 1-2 people

Pancake ingredients
1 cup finely-chopped cabbage
3/4 cup flour (I used self-raising)
1 egg
1/2 cup water
Salt
1/2 teaspoon ikan bilis powder
* Extra ingredients - basically anything you want to add, like chopped shrimp/sausage/cold cuts etc

Okonomiyaki sauce
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon honey
Japanese mayonnaise (do not mix with the above)

Method
1. Mix the pancake ingredients together into a batter
2. Heat some oil in a frying pan
3. Once the pan is hot, pour the pancake batter in
4. Once the pancake has firmed up a bit, push the sides in with a spatula
5. When one side is done, flip the pancake
6. When both sides are done, turn off the heat and slide the pancake onto a plate
7. Spread the okonomiyaki sauce on top and squeeze on some Japanese mayo
8. Lastly, garnish with spring onions and bonito flakes

Enjoy!
