It’s been a long time :) But with all the wedding preparations and university it was difficult for me to keep posting… (And no, the wedding isn’t over, it’s in less than 2 weeks!! O.o)
This time I just wanted to show you my first ever home-made Okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancake)! :)
Ever since our return form Japan I’ve wanted to try to make some at home (since we also bought Okonomiyaki sauce in Tokyo and brought it back with us).
And tonight was the night ;)
I used the recipe from “Cooking with dog” on YouTube:
(I just noticed they also have a new version… But hey, the old version we tried was also delicious!)
Since I couldn’t find some of the ingredients we changed the recipe up a bit. So for example I left the Japanese mountain yam, the dried bonito flakes, the tenkatsu, the octopus, the pickled ginger, the anori, the pork and the Japanese mayo out.
You could ask: “Then what was left of the recipe?”, and well not too much. But only using cabbage, green onion, some mushrooms and shrimps as “filling” it turned out very delicious! So I can’t imagine what it would be like using more delicious ingredients! It would be epic! ;)
I love this recipe because you can make it your own! Experiment with it. I just did the basic version tonight to try it for the first time, but it’s really easy!
So finally I leave you with a picture of a slice of our Okonomiyaki:
If you are somewhat of a foodie like me please try this recipe!!! :)
Until next time,
