Food Trip Friday--Okonomiyaki


Okonomiyaki at Gaja

This is a request recipe of a friend of mine, Sreisaat. Okonomiyaki is literally means "add what you like" and described as a Japanese pancake but it doesn't taste like pancake. It is traditionally eaten at restaurant equipped with teppan ( iron griddle) and is served with a pancake -like batter and the customer will cook the okonomiyaki by themselves using a short metal spatula. It is so easy to make and of course you can make them right at home-- you can find most of the ingredients at your favorite asian supermarket. Making okonomiyaki is convenient if you have the Okonomiyaki flour in hand and cook them on a electric hotplate but if not, you can still make it from scratch using your frying pan.


Okonomiyaki at home

Okonomiyaki--3 to 4 servings

Batter:
150 g cup All Purpose Flour ( or Okonomiyaki flour )
1 Egg, medium size
170 ml Water or dashi soup stock

Fillings:
300g Cabbage, thinly sliced or diced
2 stalks Green Onion, chopped
1/4 cupTenkasu ( tempura flakes )
Pork or Beef ( thinly sliced, shabu-shabu style)
Negi ( leeks )
Chikuwa
Optional:
Bacon strips
Raw shrimp
50ml Yamaimo--you can leave without yamaimo on your batter if you can't find one(yamaimo helps bind the batter )
Directions:
1: Mix together the batter and ingredients evenly but do not over mix. Be sure to let some "air" go into the ingredients.
2: Add oil to your flat frying pan and pour the mixture making into a circle, on medium heat, cook until a bit brown
3: Flip the dough using two spatulas to turn over then cover and lower the heat. Do not press down to it.
4: When both sides of the okonomiyaki are cooked, spread some okonomiyaki sauce ( you can replace it with Worcestershire sauce or any strong flavored sauce will do ) with a brush, Kewpie mayonnaise--in a zigzig form, top with bonito flakes and sprinkle with ao-nori( small flakes green seaweed ).
5: Serve hot.

Notes:Okonomiyaki takes longer to cook than you might expect and the finished product doesn't hold together nearly as well as a pancake.

It's been a while since I last ate at a Japanese resto but I do remember the iron grilled and the way they cook the food in front of us, it's not like you Okonomiyaki thought but it's really fun watching them doing that.

Clarissa, thank you for posting this! Alam mo I enjoyed eating okonomiyaki with the local soda. The soda was served in a traditional bottle na may round glass sa loob - nakalimutan ko na ang tawag dun e. I will try making one at home next week and pray that they would hold together hihihihi.

We Ate This!

I don't eat pancakes, but that's something that I will most likely try because it looks different. Hahaa. And your photo, is that your finish product? It's picture perfect Clarissa, as if it's from a Cooking Show. Coolness!
