Roughly chop the cabbage into 1cm squares. Don't worry, just chop roughly.
Beat eggs in a bowl. Add the flour and the dashi stock granules, and whisk well.
Pour water into Step 2 bowl little by little while whisking. Break up the lumps and mix well.
When the mixture is done, add the roughly chopped cabbage, tempura crumbs (if you have them), and grated yamaimo yam into the bowl. Mix well from the bottom.
Heat oil in a pan or on an electric griddle, and pour in some of the mixture from Step 4. Make a 3cm flat pancake.
When browned, flip it over.
When both sides are cooked, enjoy with sauce, mayonnaise, bonito flakes, and aonori seaweed if you like.
I used shrimp this time.
Story Behind this Recipe
I often go to okonomiyaki restaurants, but one day I wanted to eat okonomiyaki at home.
These will taste more delicious with lots of yamaimo yam. When you are frying, don't press down on the okonomiyaki. There's a lot of cabbage, but if you shape the mixture carefully during Step 5, it will stick together.
