Japanese food is definitely on my top things to make. Its versatile, delicious and easy.  Okonomiyaki is one of my go to meals when I crave Japanese. Okonomiyaki can be made just with cabbage but you can add your own twist to it. Try out seafood, chicken, tofu. Get creative!!

Start by slicing the cabbage. You want the cabbage to be in thinly sliced pieces. For each okonomiyaki you will need about 1 cup of chopped cabbage.


Slice the some scallions as well. They should also be thinly sliced. Add the scallions to the sliced cabbage and coat the entire thing with 1/2 cup flour.


Add 1 egg and about 1/2 cup dashi stock to the cabbage mixture. Mix until you get a nice batter the consistency of pancake batter.

On med-high heat, heat a frying pan and add oil. Place a ladle full of batter into the pan and spread out the mixture with the ladle.


Fry the okonomiyaki on one side until it gets a nice brown colour. Flip the pancake and fry the other side for 5-7 minutes until the pancake has cooked through. Keep flipping until you get each side nice and brown.


Once the pancakes are ready, garnish with toppings, Japanese mayo and okonomiyaki sauce. Yum Yum!!

  2. I ate okonomiyaki at least one time a week when I lived in Hiroshima. Now I’m feeling nostalgic and hungry at the same time! Thanks for the recipe. Do you use a vegetarian dashi stock?

      I’ve made a vegetarian version for my vegetarian friends. It does give it a different flavour than using bonito dashi but both are delicious. You can even try mixing both dashi stocks until you get a you like!!
