Zubereitung / Instructions
  1. Your imagination is your limit. In Japan the dough is prepared to taste as well.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients first, then add the eggs and water.
  3. Whisk the dough until smooth.
  4. Add cabbage, spring onion and other optional ingredients to taste.
  5. There should be enough batter to cover all ingredients while the ingredients shouldn't be swimming in it.
  6. Heat oil in a big pan on medium heat.
  7. Add one big scoop of the batter to the pan and press it on a little.
  8. On low to medium heat let the dough simmer until it starts to get cooked on the upper side.
  9. Carefully turn your okonomiyaki over once the bottom is golden brown.
  10. Once the other side is cooked golden as well it's ready to be served.
  11. Evenly spread both mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce on top.
  12. Add a dash of algae powder and lastly the Bonito flakes. (Note: The bonito flakes will begin 'dancing' because of the heat. Weird but harmless)
