Okonomiyaki: Recipe

Ingredients for one pancake

Cooked bacon 2-3strips cut into small pieces
Cabbage 3/4 cup shredded
A few prawns   ingredients
Baking powder 1 teaspoon
Cake flour 4 tablespoons
Salt 1/6 teaspoon
Chopped green onion 1/2 cup
Water 3 tablespoons
Egg 1

Ingredients Okonomiyaki sauce and toppings

Okonomiyaki Sauce
Ketchup 3 tablespoons
Soy sauce 1 teaspoon
Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon
Mix the above together
Okonomiyaki Toppings
Mayonnaise 1 tablespoon
Aonori (dried green seaweed) and dried bonito shavings (to taste)

step 1
step 2

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder and sift. Gently mix in the water. Next, add all the remaining ingredients and mix them together thoroughly.

step 3

Heat the griddle (or frying pan) and lightly oil. Spoon the okonomiyaki mixture on the griddle and spread it into a round shape about 1.2 to 1.5 cm thick.

step 4

When air bubbles start to rise in the middle of the okonomiyaki, turn it over with a spatula and fry while pressing down on it slightly until done.

step 5

Spread the sauce over the okonomiyaki, top with mayonnaise if you like. Sprinkle on the aonori and dried bonito. The okonomiyaki is now ready to eat.


For an easier way to make okonomiyaki, use ready-made pancake mix in the place of the dry ingredients.
