My first time tasted Okonomiyaki was in a colleague's house (i think about 20 years ago). I saw he prepared by adding flour, egg, cabbage & etc, and i was caught by the brown sauce (now i know this sauce is Okonomi sauce) that he was topped on the pancake..it was too yummy..
Nowadays we easily found Okonomiyaki in pasar malam (night market). The pasar malam at my place (The longest pasar malam in Malaysia) also selling this Okonomiyaki..
The important sauce in this pancake is the Okonomi sauce..All the Japanese ingredients i use here you can find in Jusco..
Once the pancake is done, then start to top up with:-
1st apply with Okonomi sauce and mayonnaise. I even made it with pattern ^_^
Then sprinkle some Furikake (dry Japanese condiment, your choice of flavours)
Last top with Bonito flakes
My kids love this pancake very much. They were asking for more...
This is my simple version of Okonomiyaki..
