The Osaka classic Okonomiyaki has now been turned into a waffle:

the okonomiyaffle is here.

The classic Okonomiyaki is made with cabbage, katsuobushi and nori seaweed topped with mayonnaise and sweet worcestershire sauce. Mmm... it is so delicious. However, my recipes does not allow for mayonnaise nor sweet anything sauce, but fear not - It will be super tasty, fast to cook and easy peasy to make - just like all the other recipes.

Okonomiyaki waffle Ingredients:

Yield: 2-3 waffles

Prep time 7 minutes

Cooking time 5 minutes per waffle

  • 2 medium sized potatoes (150g)

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 tsp finely shredded fresh ginger

Step 1.

Peel and grate the potatoes. Slice the ALL cabbage finely - Put half aside for toppings.

Mince the onion, grate the ginger and combine the four.

Step 2.

Add eggs, and everything else.

Step 3. Turn on waffle iron, I set it on 4/5 spray with a tiny bit of oil.

Place 1 large spoonful of mixture in the middle of the waffle iron, then a spray of oil, close it up and cook for about 5 minutes - until it's golden brown. Place the okonomiyaki on a rack and cover with tin foil

Step 4.

Repeat step 3. one-two more times.

Cut the cucumber and carrot into julienne ( matchstick shape) Mix both with cabbage, sesame and soy sauce with lemon juice.
