Resep: Cheese Okonomiyaki Recipe (Savory Japanese Pancake)

A fulfilling Japanese snack, my version of Okonomiyaki with bacon and cheese. You can do it without bacon if you don't eat pork or replace it with beef bacon, most of people use pork belly but I thought why not bacon? Talking about the ingredients, you surely can add pretty much anything from chicken to seafood and for the veggies, cabbage is a must, in addition I like it with sweet corn.

Some of the uncommon ingredients such as okonomiyaki sauce, dashi, aonori, and katsuobushi can be found at certain supermarket in Jakarta such as Grand Lucky, Ranch Market, KemChick, Papaya Fresh Gallery, and AEON Supermarket in Serpong.

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup cabbage
  • 1/4 cup ham / smoked beef
  • 1/2 cup assorted seafood or chicken
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 stalks scallion, thinly sliced
  • 2-4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 tsp dashi
  • salt to taste
  • okonomiyaki sauce
  • cheese
  • mayonaise
  • aonori (green nori)
  • katsuobushi (bonito flakes)
  • sliced scallion

Watch the video for the directions to make Cheese Okonomiyaki. Personally, I like to make smaller pancake and eat it directly from the pan (the best way is to use portable stove, so you can enjoy okonomiyaki in dining / living room with your love ones).
