The okonomiyaki お 好 み 焼 き is one of Japan's characteristic dishes and precisely one of Osaka's specialties that many know and love. Here the recipe for you to try to make them at home.


The recipe for okonomiyaki provides many variables depending on the taste that one prefers, because there are many types, such as those with meat (mainly pork), fish, vegetables, and many more.

6/7 spoons filled with flour
2/3 cup of lukewarm water
hondashi (granular broth)
goods shoga (red ginger in brine)
sauce from okonomiyaki
aonori (dry algae strips)

Begin washing and squeezing the cabbage leaves well, once ready we begin to slice it as thin as possible, taking care to remove the thickest shingles.

Take the shoga goods and cut it into small squares and add it to the bowl in which you put the crushed cabbage. Shoga goods could be one of those difficult to find ingredients, but it is not one of the indispensable ones, it gives a more decisive taste to the keniomiyaki but you could do it.

In the cup of lukewarm water, dissolve half a hondashi sachet (granular broth) and let it reel for good, in the meantime break the eggs by baking them well and add the flour (preferably sifted to avoid lumps) and the "broth" dissolved in the cup. Mix all well until you get a homogeneous, dense, not too watery compound.

When ready, personalization time comes with sauces and more. In Japan, they use so much the mayonnaise that they squeeze it well on the mukomiyaki by drawing streaks on it, but first brush it all with a sauce for okonomiyaki that you will surely find in ethnic shops or large supermarkets such as Otafuku, Ikari (い か り) the Fugetsu (風月), but there are many more.
