Good Food Friday : Okonomiyaki

I whipped up this awesome pancake for lunch last Sunday – it took minutes to make and was lip smackingly delicious. If your not familiar with Okonomiyaki – it’s japanese pancake and can virtually be made with anything you have in your fridge. You can substitute suitable vegetables, making it really easy to quickly make up for a lunch when unexpected guests drop over or like me, when the craving hits!

Okonomiyaki

4 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1 potato, grated.
1 carrot, grated
1 leek, chopped
Oil to fry pancakes

Sauces
Okonomiyaki sauce (you can find this at the japanese grocers or use kekap manis available at the supermarket)
Japanese mayonnaise (I like the kewpie brand – also available at the supermarket)

Method
Beat eggs in a large bowl. Once mixed well, combine all other ingredients. You may add more water if necessary.
Heat oil in a frypan over a medium heat. Using a ladle, spoon in one full ladle to pan and allow mixture to spread out evenly – sometimes using the base of the ladle to flatten out.
Cook both sides until golden brown.

Serve with sauces.

    Ohhhhh I could talk for a VERY long time about the merits of combining Japanese mayo and Kecap Manis. I put them both in rice paper rolls – they literally jazz up ANYTHING!
