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.
- 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
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.
