Okonomiyaki

Well. It’s been about a year since I put a recipe up. Here is a recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pancake dish, apparently meaning ‘whatever you like’. I’ve gone moderately sane here.

Okonomiyaki 

Ingredients

  • 100g flour
  • 4 or 5 eggs
  • 1/4tsp baking powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Half a white cabbage
  • 4 spring onions
  • Pork belly (optional)
  • Okonomiyaki sauce and kewpie mayonnaise… Or;
  • A 50/50 mix of brown sauce and Worcester sauce and regular mayonnaise 

Method

If you’re cooking pork belly, chop it up fine and lightly fry it for a few minutes, then transfer to a bowl.

Beat together the flour, eggs, baking powder, salt and pepper till you have a smooth batter.

Chop up the spring onion and shred the lettuce. Beat this (and the pork belly if you’re having it) into the batter mix.

In a small pan over a lowish temperature, spoon in the mixture to make a pancake about an inch high. Push in the edges as you go, and let it cook for about 5 minutes.

Then you need to flip it. Probably easiest to turn the pan over onto a plate, then slide it back into the pan.

Give it another five minutes then serve it. If you can, put the sauce and mayo in a crisscross fashion. It looks nice. Not essential though.

Eat up!
