Sweet Onion and Natto Oyaki (Flat Cakes)

When sweet onions are in season, try this recipe!
Even my meat-loving husband will gobble these natto treats down ♡

Ingredients

Sweet new harvest onion
1
Natto (combined with provided sauce)
1 package
Flour
6 tablespoons
Sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
Aonori
1 tablespoon
Water
100 ml
Salt
a small amount

Steps

1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the water in a bowl, and mix until even. Add water, and briskly fold.
2. Grease a frying pan with oil (not listed in ingredients), heat the pan, then ladle the batter in spoonfuls onto the pan to make small coin-sized fritters.
3. Flip them over when they brown to fry the other side, then they are done when the onions become translucent!
4. They're tasty served with ponzu or okonomiyaki sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

Once, I bought some sweet onions and natto when I'd forgotten that I'd already ordered them for delivery from my co-op, and so ended up with excess sweet onions and natto!
I came up with this recipe as a way to use them up.
