Julienne the cabbage. Break 2 eggs into a bowl and add the milk. Combine together.
Add the cabbage, natto, and dashi stock to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
Place the other egg into a small bowl and beat.
Heat oil in a pan. Pour in the batter from step 2. Flatten the mixture into a pancake.
Pour the egg from step 3 on top of the cabbage pancake. Cover the pan with a lid and cook until the edges turn brown. Turn the pancake over and cook.
Serve the cooked pancake onto a plate and garnish with mayonnaise and bonito flakes.
Note: You can also make several small pancakes and garnish with a variety of flavours. I recommend this.
Try topping it with ketchup and cheese, and sprinkle on some black pepper. So good!! Tabasco sauce is also great too!!
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to eat okonomiyaki since I haven't eaten it in a while. But there are so many calories...in a typical okonomiyaki. I made these okonomiyaki as I would a healthy omelet, and this is the result. I mixed in my beloved natto too!
It is important to mix the egg into the batter well, and to pour beaten egg over the top before cooking. You can crumble the pancake when you turn it over, if you prefer. Or, shape your pancakes into different shapes, or perfect circles. The okonomiyaki are also great if topped with spicy chilli oil (ra-yu).
