Recipe Of The Day: Japanese Love Okonomiyaki

I can’t get enough of Korean and Japanese dramas! So from there, I was really curious on how to cook their dishes. I once tried making sushi, not really difficult — but for me, it’s a bit time consuming. Or maybe I just need lots of practice!

I would love to go to Japan and Korea, learn their culture and taste all their delicious dishes! I can’t wait! I would visit soon after I graduate (hopefully! — time to save some serious cash!!).

Today, I’ve cooked Okonomiyaki! I can’t believe how easy it was to prepare and cook this dish! I don’t know where I can buy Japanese ingredients, so I googled stores that I can go to! Mama helped me the other day so I’ve bought a lot of stuffs, eg. Kewpie mayo, Okonomi sauce, ramen noodles and kimchi! It was a bit expensive but it was okay. It’s something different and I would probably go back to that store because the manager was really nice 🙂


Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “what you like” or “what you want”, and yaki meaning “grilled” or “cooked” (cf. yakitori and yakisoba). Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region. (link)

Okonomiyaki Yey!

My ingredients are:

1/2 large lettuce
spring onions roughly chopped
turkey and vegetable nuggets (6pcs. roughly chopped) — you can put any meat or toppings!
All purpose flour (1cup)
Dashi or any stock (1cup)
1 large egg

Mix all until just combined. Then fry it up! 🙂

Mixture Okonomiyaki

I’ve used a non-stick frying pan with just a little oil.

Frying it up!

You can eat it with rice or on its own!

Okonomi Yum!

Next will be Takoyaki! I just need to find a Takoyaki pan/grill. 🙂
