『Funwari Kaisen Okonomiyaki | Japanese Grilled Seafood Pancake』 Hi everyone, I’m MASA ah.. This time I would like to share a Japanese grilled pancake to you all it’s called Okonomiyaki Meaning of Okonomi is “what you like” which is containing a variety of ingredients & grill This time I’m going to introduce a very simple & tasty Okonomiyaki Alright ! Let’s do it ! * cake flour – 100gm (sieve ) * salt – some * Bonito flakes – some ( give a knead by hands ) Can make a fluffy texture with this Japanese yam * Japanese yam – 50gm ( process by grater ) Original recipe is used Japanese Dashi but this time I’m going to use milk can gives a extra rich flavor * milk – 100cc / # Of course can use Japanese Dashi if is not used to it with milk ~ ^^; Alright ! A batter is done ~ * cabbage – 200gm * finely diced / # Does not have to be over chopped, it will comes out a lot of water & without mouth-feel # If is cut it too big pieces, it will easily disperse while make in a shape.. * squid – 1 piece ( small ) * cut into a smaller slices * shrimp – 8~10 pieces ( small ) If you want to add more seafood ingredient, can add scallop will be good (^o^)/ if is too big (scallop), you can cut into smaller piece Alright ! Next I’m going to prepare the batter & cabbage combine together Please be careful of this step because the cabbage will easily comes out a lot of water after combine together and will dilute the batter so please remember, after mixed well all the Okonomiyaki ingredients have to pay fry immediately, OK * put half of the chopped cabbage into a small bowl * add half of the batter * add 5~6 pieces of shrimps * half portion of the squid slices Have to pay attention for the amount of seafood if is add too much of seafood, it will comes out a lot of water while heating ah.. I was too excited that’s why keep repeating which is means the batter can’t become firm, OK ~ * egg – 1 piece * mix well… / # If is over mixed will become chewy texture ! * low heat If use the gas stove, control the heat which is remain the medium-low heat & steam grill until golden brown * fill in some oil * remove excess oil with kitchen paper * pour the cabbage mixture onto the frying pan ~ ! * adjust the shape with wooden spatula Does not press on the surface, just spread approximately thickness the middle of the air will go away & could not make a fluffy texture whole it straight for the wooden spatula & spread evenly the size roughly same as big as your hand Does not have to be make it too big, otherwise difficult to flip over (°∇°;) so it’s best to make a shape slightly thicker size simmer grill for 3~4 minutes over low heat & pan fry the bottom side until golden brown * after 3 minutes… let me take a look at the bottom side first use a spatula to check whether the bottom side is golden brown almost done Nice golden brown after flip cover with lid over low heat & simmer for 3 minutes or until golden brown If you’re new to making Okonomiyaki you can try this way let’s imagine this is Okonomiyaki if you’re worry to flip may break it sliding down the Okonomiyaki on the plate first cover up with frying pan turn over the plate that’s all & see which movement is easier to flip, OK ~ * after 3 minutes… * turn the Okonomiyaki over one more time ~ (≧∀≦)/ For the first grill is 3 minutes ( over low heat ) & flip over cover with lid & simmer grill for 3 minutes after 3 minutes, remove the lid & flip over again & pan fry uncovered for 3 minutes so in total roughly take 9~11 minutes to cooked the Okonomiyaki * another 3 minutes later… * place on the cutting board * divide into 4~6 pieces You can check whether inside is cooked while cutting * drizzle Okonomiyaki sauce or Tonkotsu sauce over / # Can drizzle any amount as you want for the dressing ~ ! How to decorative with mayonnaise ? * squeeze small amount of mayonnaise over plastic wrap * wrap it up & poke a hole by toothpick * sprinkle with seaweed powder ( Aonori ) * sprinkle with Bonito flakes ( Katsuo bushi ) Alright ! A tasty looking good Okonomiyaki is done ~ ! Let’s give a try ~ It’s best to cut it first then only drizzle the seasonings, mush easier to pick it up Awesome ~ ! Itadakimasu ~ Hmm ~ ! Really tasty ! Should have a glass of beer right after tasting very fluffy for the texture & flavorful with the seafood ah.. very simple, made primarily from batter & chopped cabbage and various topping options to make a very tasty Okonomiyaki Well, let’s try it ~ !
