Japanese Okonomiyaki Pancake Recipe – Osaka style
Okonomi means ”all that I really like”, and yaki means grilled or fried in Japanese. This easy savoury Japanese pancake is made Osaka style which is the most simple version and makes a great lunch. Add anything to the dish, it’s all about what you fancy.
Mix eggs and dashi. Add flour, sugar, sesame oil and soy sauce and mix well into a batter Add finely chopped cabbage and small pieces of bacon. The cabbage should be covered by the batter. If this is a bit too thin add a bit more flour.
Heat a pan with a little oil and put half of the batter onto the pan. Fry for 3-4 minutes at medium heat. Turn over the okonomiyaki by placing a plate on top. Turn the pan and let the okonomiyaki slide back onto the pan. Fry for another 3-4 minutes. Repeat with the second okonomiyaki. Garnish with okonomi sauce, Japanese mayonnaise, finely sliced spring onions and katsuobushi.
