quick before I forget
I've been meaning to try my hand at these for a while and really they couldn't be easier. I'm writing to share and so I don't forget because there are surprisingly few recipes I could find out there. I made double this quantity and that saw me texting neighbours to offload excess! This lot makes 3 big or 4 medium sized okonomiyaki.
Crack an egg in a bigish bowl.
Add 3/4 cup of water or dashi or veg stock and give it a whisk.
Sift in a cup of flour and whisk until combined.
Using a big spoon mix in 1/4 small head of cabbage finely shredded - plus any other bits you like (I added a little bit of carrot and spring onion but meat, octopus etc are all OK).
Fry big spoonfuls in the fry pan with a litttle peanut oil over a medium to high heat, squishing out flat to make them pancake like.
Plate up with okonomiyaki or tonkatsu sauce (brown sauce) and a squiggle of kewpie mayonaise and cut into wedges pizza style.
