My family loves Japanese food and okonomiyaki is one of those food that we prepare again and again especially on a lazy weekend for a quick and easy lunch.

Okonomiyaki sauce and toppings

(serves 4)


1 1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup dashi or water
pinch of salt
4 eggs
4 cups packed cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup carrot, grated
1 spring onion, chopped
1/2 cup prawns or squids, chopped
1/2 cup bacon or ham, diced
Oil for frying
Okonomiyaki sauce
Japanese mayonnaise
Bonito flakes
Dried seaweed


1) In a large bowl, mix the flour, water, salt and eggs with a whisk to form a batter.

2) Add in prawns or squids and chopped bacon or ham and mix together.  Lastly, add in cabbage, carrot and spring onion and mix evenly.

3) Heat some oil in a pan. Scoop 1/4 of the mixture into the pan. Cook on medium heat until golden brown on both sides.

4) Once cooked, removed from pan and onto plate. Top with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, bonito flakes and dried seaweed.
