This delicious "fast food" from Japan is filling and healthy! Don't forget a side of soy or okonomiyaki sauce. This delicious "fast food" from Japan is filling and healthy! Don't forget a side of soy or okonomiyaki sauce.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 egg, beaten
    1 cup flour
    3/4 cup water

    1/2 c carrot shreds
    1/2 c corn kernals
    4 shitake mushrooms (can sub others)
    1 c shredded Chinese cabbage
    8 oz shrimp


To make the batter, mix the egg with the flour and water. Certain styles of okonomiyaki allows for the cabbage to be added to the batter. Others, place it on top. For ease of cooking, try mixing all the toppings into the batter except the shrimp. It looks less authentic, but tastes just as yummy.

Heat a griddle to 375, and lightly grease with either canola oil, or non-stick spray. Pour 1/4 of the batter onto the griddle. If toppings aren't mixed into your batter, pile them on top immediately so they bond. Once the batter is firming up like a pancake, quickly flip over and continue to cook until batter is set.

For extra fun, only mix the cabbage into the batter and allow family members to add their own preferred toppings. Other vegetables can be a hit, and so can other proteins like squid, fish, or even chicken.

Sprinkle with seaweed flakes and enjoy!
