Recipe's preparation

    Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake)
  1. This savoury Japanese pancake is super delicious and you’ll be licking your fingers from the Okonomiyaki Sauce (our recipe too!) plus the Kewpie mayonnaise (either made from Cookidoo or just shop-bought). We have broken the recipe into 2 parts below, first make the Okonomiyaki Sauce, and then the Okonomiyaki.

    Makes 4 medium sized pancakes

    1) Add all brown sauce ingredients into bowl and mix 30 seconds, speed 5. Set aside into small bowl and use for serving later.
