okonomiyaki

Submitted by: SUNNY112358

Introduction

This is a cheap, filling Japanese dish, usually eaten out. The name literally means 'fry to your taste' because you can choose the ingredients you want to add to the basic batter and cabbage. I give you a version with prawns, but you can use squid, chicken, frankfurter or wiener sausages, or whatever else you like. The word 'yaki' is loosely translated 'fry' but in restaurants this is cooked on a tabletop griddle. At home I improvise with a heavy non-stick pan.
