Okonomiyaki is one of Japan’s most well-known and well-loved festival foods. It is made from seasoned flour, cabbage, egg (for binding) and any variety of meats and vegetables. These ingredients are all mixed together and cooked on a hot plate, just like a pancake. They are then smothered in delicious okonomiyaki sauce and other toppings. For other okonomiyaki flour options, take a look in's Flour & Panko section.

How To Use

• Add 100g okonomiyaki flour to 100ml water in a bowl and mix well. Add 300g chopped cabbage (about half a head), 1 egg, and 100g of your favourite okonomiyaki fillings (squid, prawn, pork, tempura pearls, beni shoga ginger, etc.)
• On a hot plate or saucepan over a medium heat (200C), add a little vegetable oil before spooning out half the okonomiyaki batter into a circular shape. Allow to cook for approx. 4 minutes.
• Carefully turn the pancake over and cover with a lid. Allow to cook for a further 5 minutes.
• Remove lid and flip over once more. Allow to cook for another 1 minute.
• Transfer to plates and serve with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, bonito fish flakes, and/or beni shoga ginger.
• Repeat from Step 2 with the rest of the okonomiyaki batter.

Delicious! Totally makes a difference for making proper okonomiyaki - the tempura flakes and the yam powder are the real game changers.
