AT A GLANCE
Okonomiyaki is a savoury Japanese pancake. It may look a little crazy, but it tastes delicious.
|01||Whisk dashi stock and flour together in a bowl until smooth. Add eggs, zucchini, carrot, spring onion and 150gm cabbage and mix to combine (do not overmix), then season to taste and set aside.|
|02||Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add batter, press with a spatula to make even and cook until golden and starting to set (3-4 minutes). Place bacon over okonomiyaki, carefully flip over and cook until bacon is golden and crisp (3-4 minutes). Turn over again and cook until golden and cooked through (2-3 minutes).|
|03||Drizzle okonomiyaki with mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce, scatter with fried noodles, remaining cabbage and extra spring onions and serve with pickled ginger and nori.|
Note Dashi powder is a great option when you need to make dashi stock in a hurry: make it according to packet instructions. Dashi powder, Japanese mayonnaise, okonomiyaki sauce and nori are available from Japanese grocers.
