  • Dough
    • 1.5 cups flour
    • 7 oz. water
    • 2 eggs
    • Cabbage
    • 1 package of firm tofu, cubed
  • Possible ingredients to put into/onto Okonomiyaki

    • Aonori*: Green, dried seaweed.
  • Sauces
    • Brown okonomiyaki sauce*

  • Cut four large, green cabbage leaves without the hard, white core in thin strings (ca. 4 mm).
  • Mix the water, flour, eggs and the cabbage strings together.
  • Add the cubed tofu
  • Fry the dough like a pancake in a small frying pan
  • Before turning the okonomiyaki over, and while the dough is still quite soft, you may put other ingredients on top of the dough.
