I really don't know where to post this. But since little kids love to eat this pancake, i am putting this recipe here. Gina, you can move this to wherever you see fit. This is for Jo and Alannia



Ingredients

1 1/4 cup hot water
3 tbsp hondashi (fish stock particles from japanese store)
1 egg + additional for each pancake
1 cup flour
1 cup julienned cabbage (julienned very thinly)
a few pieces shrimp (or any other kind of meat, sliced thinly)
okonomi sauce (available in japanese store)
QP mayonnaise
katsuobushi (fishy flakes like the one they usually have flying around takopachi)

Dissolve hondashi into hot water. Mix in egg and flour. Mix cabbage into batter.
Heat oil on a flat pan. pour batter to form round pancake (any size you like)
arrange shrimp on top of half cooked batter.
When bottom of pancake is browned (top is still half cooked) remove onto a plate with the half cooked side facing up.
Add more oil to pan.
Fry an egg (you may break the yolk if you wish).
Before egg is cooked, return the pancake onto the pan with the uncooked side of the pancake in contact with the egg.
swirl okonomi sauce on top of the pancake and cover pan for a while.
When pancake is fully cooked, remove to a plate and decorate with QP mayonnaise and katsuobushi.

Ready to eat....

Note: you may adjust the consistency of the batter as you like by adding more water or flour. it should be the thickness of banana fritters batter. I usually do this by eye.

You can also buy the Okonomiyaki premix flour! Just add water and eggs, and the other ingredients!

I have some difficulty locating the flour but it's available in the Japanese section in NTUC Junction 8.

I tried making this from scratch before (plain flour + tapioca flour). It works as well.

As for sauce you can also use tonkatsu sauce. I can't find okonomiyaki sauce.

I didn't do the "egg topping" bit, but it's worth a try!

I find that the batter cooks more easily when it's more watery. Not too watery of course Smile
