Small Comfort - Okonomiyaki
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ c. or more of chicken broth (the batter should be the consistency of pancake batter)
  • pinch salt
  • 1 c. shredded green cabbage
  • 6 scallions, chopped
  • 1-2 oz. precooked filling of your choice
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • mayonnaise
  • Okonomi Sauce
  • Bonito flakes
  • seaweed
  1. Combine the flour, eggs and broth in a bowl and stir until combined.
  2. Add cabbage scallions, and filling, and stir until the vegetables and filling are thoroughly incorporated in the batter.
  3. Heat oil in an 8-10" nonstick skillet.
  4. Add cabbage mixture, and cook until browned and crisp. Turn (it may be easiest to do this by sliding the pancake onto a plate and then turning it from the plate back in the pan.
  5. Cook until other side is brown and no batter oozes out when you press.
  6. Top with any combination of the toppings, and enjoy.
All amounts are approximate -- this is, after all, as you like it.
