Veggie Okonomiyaki

A traditional Japanese street food, these pan-fried savoury pancakes are just as delicious when made at home. We’ve substituted the traditional ‘otafuku’ sauce used in this dish with an umami-rich blend of oyster sauce and tomato ketchup.

30 Minutes




Make Batter

Preheat oven to 150C fan-forced. Place stock in a measuring jug and add 60ml (1/4 cup) boiling water. Stir to dissolve stock, then add 125ml (1/2 cup) cold water. Place flour in a bowl make a well in the centre. Add the vegetable stock and egg to the well and use a whisk to combine the wet and dry ingredients. Set aside.



Prepare Cabbage

Remove core from cabbage and thinly shred half the cabbage. Place in a bowl with rice wine vinegar and half the sesame seeds. Set aside. Roughly chop remaining cabbage and thinly slice spring onions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside.



Cook Mushrooms

Slice mushrooms. Heat 10ml (1⁄2 tablespoon) oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add mushroom and cook, tossing the pan, for 4 minutes or until light golden. Set aside. Wipe out the pan.



Combine Batter

Add roughly chopped cabbage to batter with mushroom and white spring onion. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.



Cook Okonomiyaki

Lightly oil frypan and place over medium heat. Add 1⁄2 the batter into pan and spread out to a 15cm diameter circle. Do not press the mixture down. Cook, shaping the edges with a spatula to form a circle, for 7 minutes or until base is browned. Flip over and poke a few holes in the top with a skewer to allow steam to escape. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Keep warm in the oven while you cook remaining okonomiyaki.



Plate up

Place oyster sauce and tomato ketchup in a bowl and mix to combine. Divide okonomiyaki between plates and top with sauce. Drizzle over mayonnaise and top with cabbage slaw, remaining sesame seeds and green spring onion to serve.
