Superb! Pork and Egg Okonomiyaki

Superb! Pork and Egg Okonomiyaki

This okonomiyaki is my husband's pride and joy, and it tastes better than any restaurant version. You can try it with various toppings once you master the basic recipe.

Ingredients: 4 okonomiyaki pancakes

White flour
200g
Yamaimo or nagaimo
150g
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Water
250ml
Japanese dashi soup base
1 1/3 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Cabbage
1/2
Tempura crumbs
to taste
Green onion or scallion
1 bunch
Chikuwa
2
Eggs
4

Steps

1. After mixing the flour and salt together, add water little by little to keep it from balling up. Add the Japanese yams, dashi soup base, soy sauce, and stir until smooth.
2. Divide the flour, cabbage, green onions, tempura crumbs, and chikuwa into 4 individual bowls and mix (it tastes great with natto).
3. Once the electric griddle is heated, coat with oil, pour in the batter, and lay the pork belly on top. Flip over once they have browned nicely.
4. When flipping over, do not press down with a spatula, just use the edge of a spatula to poke it at several places to add air vents!! Eat it with bonito flakes, aonori seaweed flakes, and okonomiyaki sauce.
