Okonomiyaki, Japanese pancakes

Japanese pancakes

Savory delicious Japanese pancakes, these pancakes can be made with anything your hearts desires.

The name is derived from the word okonomimeaning “what you like” or “what you want”, and yaki meaning “cooked”or “grilled”. So basically cook what you want. Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with the areas of Kansai or Hiroshima in Japan, but is widely available throughout the country.

Make individual Okonomiyaki or a big one for sharing.

 

Ingredients

3 eggs
3,75  dl vegetable broth or dashi
5 dl all-purpose flour or whole-wheat pastry flour
5 dl finly chopped/thinly sliced cabbage
1 onion finely sliced
4 dl prawns, sliced in two
Chopped nori
Chuno Sauce
Mayonese

Quick Chuno sauce
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Worchestershire Sauce

In a large bowl whisk together flour, stock and eggs. Add chopped cabbage and mix so that the cabbage is gently crushed into the batter, fold in prawns and season with salt.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat until shimmering. Add 1/4 of the batter, gently pushing the batter down with a spatula until flattened. Cook for about 4 minutes on both sides. Serve immediately with mayonnaise, Chuno sauce and a sprinkle of finely shopped nori on top.
