How to cook Okonomi Yaki (a kind of Japanese pancake)

 

This food is said “Kona Mon-粉もん”.

It’s a juicy dish mixed sliced cabbage , flour , eggs, and water and cooked.

We eat usually with Otafuku sauce and Mayonnaise!

The point of flavor is put thin sliced pork on the dough.

Someone tell you this is Japanese pancake have taste of essence of seafood , pork, and veggie.

I recommend you to prepare the topping(dried bonito flakes and Ao Nor-青のり)
