How to cook Okonomiyaki pancake

Method
STEP 1

Combine the flour, baking powder, egg and stock. Mix until smooth, whisking out any lumps without overmixing. Add the potato, season with a little salt and white pepper, cover and rest for at least 2 hrs.

STEP 2

While the mix is resting, combine the ingredients for the sauce, stirring until it’s smooth. Set aside.

STEP 3

Remove the batter from the fridge and add the cabbage, spring onion, ginger, soy, mirin and chosen seafood. Stir to thoroughly coat the mix in the batter.

STEP 4

Heat a thin layer of oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Pour the mixture into the pan, keeping it as circular as possible. Fry for 3-5 mins. Use a palette knife to help you flip it over and cook for a further 3-5 mins, using a lid at intervals to trap the heat so it cooks through. Test to see if it’s ready by sticking a chopstick into the middle. If it comes out dry, it’s ready.

STEP 5

Flip onto a board and serve with the sauce and garnishes to taste. Eat straight away.
