Chop the onion. The picture shows how finely to chop.
Mix the flour, water, and egg together. Be careful! Regardless of the amount of onions, do not add more water.
Add the onions and lightly mix into the batter. Leave the batter to rest for about 1 hour. Extra water will seep out of the onions during this time.
While the batter is resting, fry the pork slices, and set aside.
Pour the batter into 1.5cm thickness for best results and lay the pork and toppings on top. Turn the pancake over when the bottom browns.
Story Behind this Recipe
An okonomiyaki fan taught me this recipe. If you use onions, Awaji Island or Hokkaido onions are great. Crispy and sweetly spicy okonomiyaki sauce is also a good match. Great while drinking a beer or Highball.
- The amount of water differs from the instructions on the okonomiyaki flour package, but the onions will release water, so there's enough! - You can add a second egg to the batter if you wish.
