Easy Okonomiyaki recipe

Easy Okonomiyaki

Serves 2

Okonomiyaki

  • 130g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150ml water
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g washed and shredded cabbage (tough parts removed)
  • 2 slices of ham, thinly chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Simple Okonomiyaki sauce

  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar or white wine vinegar

Garnish

  • 2 washed and chopped spring onions

Mix the flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Add the water and whisk until most of the lumps have gone. Add the eggs and continue to whisk until combined.

Sprinkle in the cabbage and ham, season with salt and pepper and mix together.

Place a large non stick frying pan on a medium heat and pour in the vegetable oil. Once it’s hot spoon in the mixture and use a couple of spatulas to flatten it to around 1.5cm thick. Push in the edges to keep it round in shape.

Cook for around 5-7 minutes. Once the edges start to brown carefully flip over and cook on the other side for a further 5-7 minutes. Once cooked through slide onto a plate.

Mix the Okonomiyaki sauce ingredients together and spread over the top, then combine the mayo ingredients together and drizzle on top. Sprinkle with chopped spring onions and eat.

    I might just give this a go, sounds rather simple. I’ve always been afraid of making those because all the recipes I’ve read before required tons and tons of ingredients but not here! Thanks for sharing.

      I think you could make it more complicated, but try this first which will give you a good idea of how it tastes and how easy it is to do!

    My bf has been wanting to make this at home ever since he got back from a trip to Osaka. It looked intimidating to me, but your version looks so simple and good! Thanks!!
