For great, authentic-tasting takoyaki.

Making one of the best dishes to come out of Osaka is now easier than ever with the help of Nippn Ohmai's takoyaki flour. The perfect takoyaki requires a well-seasoned savoury batter that, when cooked, is crispy on the outside and soft and viscous on the inside; and this flour has been specially formulated to do just that. It also comes well-seasoned with light soy sauce flavours, so all you need to make your takoyaki is fresh octopus, an egg, and your favourite fresh fillings.

Although Japan is known as a rice-eating nation, wheat has been used there for well over 1000 years. Many of Japan's favourite dishes are wheat-based, including udon and ramen noodle dishes, gyoza dumplings, okonomiyaki, and dorayaki pancakes. Take a look at japancentre.com's Flour and Panko section for our full range of specially made and seasoned flours for using to make Japanese cuisine.

How To Use

• Combine 1/2 contents of pack, 750ml water and 1 egg in a large mixing bowl. Whisk briskly until combined and lump-free.
• Cut 100g fresh octopus into bite-size pieces. Slice up your other fresh ingredients (we recommend ginger and spring onion, but you can use whatever ingredients you like).
• Heat and oil up a takoyaki pan. Fill each cup with takoyaki batter, then insert one piece of takoyaki, as well as your other seasonings, into the batter.
• When the outside of the batter is cooked, flip over using a bamboo skewer. Continue to rotate the takoyaki balls around until cooked all around.
• Serve with plenty of takoyaki sauce, bonito fish flakes, aonori seaweed and any other desired toppings.

The whole world needs to eat this! There are plenty of online instructions but the staff will help you get it right! You'll need the right pan or skillet. There is a similar Scandinavian pan if you struggle finding a takoyaki griddle. Watch a YouTube video and see how the pro's do it!
