Okonomiyaki Mix – Try the World Japan
I was super skeptical when I received the Okonomiyaki Mix in my Try the World Japan box. How could an Okonomiyaki mix possible be good?! It just doesn’t seem like something that can be cooked super deliciously at home. I was wrong, I’m actually craving it now just writing about it, it was super yummy!
Luckily there were instructions available in English!
Lots of cabbage….four cups in fact!
Nicely separated pre-packaged powders
The Try the World instructions forgot to mention that a half cup of water is needed for the recipe. How would we have made our dough?!
It easily mixes into a nice little dough
Add two eggies and lettuce and there’s a little packet of crunchies that go on top
Mix it all up but make sure not to mix it too much or the dough will get way too sticky
Now make two patties and stick it all in the pan. My pans definitely too small but I made it work
Time to fry up that bacon. I took two pieces and cut them into three parts, but I would actually recommend adding one entire piece of bacon. I couldn’ve used a bit more on my pancake!
After a little bit of frying, top with the bacon
Flip it, then cover and fry for 5 minutes. Flip once more and continue to fry without the cover for 2 minutes
Top with the seaweed packet and either okonomiyaki sauce or Japanese Mayonnaise!
I think that okonomiyaki sauce is too sweet for my taste so mine okonomiyaki really only needed Japanese Mayonnaise – which in my opinion tastes amazing on absolutely everything! This was great, the cabbage was perfectly cooked and the dough was crispy and creamy at the same time. I gobbled it up and would definitely make it again
