Okonomiyaki - Kansai-style

Okonomiyaki - Kansai-style

Using a pan, just add your favorite ingredients and fry up; its really simple. This is great for finishing up leftover cabbage!

Ingredients: 4 okonomiyaki pancakes

All-purpose flour
200 g
200 ml
Dashi stock granules
2 heaping teaspoons (8 g)
Shredded cabbage
1/2 small head (about 380 g)
Nagaimo yam (if you have it)
10 cm (about 150 g)
Your favorite ingredients
as much as you like
Okonomiyaki sauce, bonito flakes, mayonnaise, etc.
to taste


1. Thoroughly mix the flour, eggs, and dashi stock granules together.
2. Add in grated nagaimo yam. I put it into a plastic bag and crush it with a rolling pin.
3. Add in the cabbage and ingredients of your choice, and mix some more.
4. Lightly coat a pan with oil (not listed), add in the mixture from step 3, mold it into shape, and cook over a relatively strong heat. I covered with a lid.
5. Once it has turned golden brown, flip over, let it cook through, and flip it over again.
6. Add on the toppings, and it is done! This time I used leftover mochi from New Years, tempura bits, and cheese.
7. The okonomiyaki goes well with wine spritzers. A wine spritzer is a carbonated wine beverage.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to use up the leftovers from New Years, so I made this.
