Japanese Vegetable Pancake (Okonomiyaki) Recipe
When I lived in Melbourne, there was a great little Japanese lunch bar behind my office building. I loved ducking in for Okonomiyaki and Yakitori (Japanese Vegetable Pancake with Chicken skewers). Admittedly, the thick, sweet Japanese soy sauce and mayonnaise drizzled liberally over them is what I love about these pancakes (and they’ve got vegies in them, so they must be healthy!). I haven’t found them as readily available here in Brisbane, so thought I’d give them a try.

Japanese Vegetable Pancake (Okonomiyaki)
The recipe makes four large pancakes and are deceptively filling. I didn’t have any mayonnaise and just used barbecue sauce. Hubby and I enjoyed them, the toddler wasn’t so keen!
these look yummy! I think i’m going to give it a try and hope the toddler likes them. He loves regular pancakes, maybe I can convince him it’s a regular pancake! 🙂
That looks good and different too. Thanks for linking up!
I decided to cook these tonight since its Shrove Tuesday. I also added some grated carrot and finely chopped red capsicum. Oh my good, they are to die for! Especially paired with yakitori sauce and the japanese (kewpie) mayonnaise drizzled over it. I teamed it with some chicken skewers marinated in the yakitori sauce and it was heaven! Thanks for sharing!!
Sounds delicious! Thanks for letting me know.
