I ate my first okonomiyaki not in Japan but in Paris. Kanna prepared some for us in her atelier at Cité des Arts and it was a big hit! Remembering how much I liked it, she brought me this from her Japan trip 🙂
And one evening, around 11 PM,
A & I got hungry.
So I decided, why not try and make my first Okonomiyaki!!!
OKONOMI means anything you like, so for the ingredients add whatever your heart desires ;p
I like mine with mushrooms, shrimps, lardons/bacon, onions
MY FIRST OKONOMIYAKI CREATION!!!
For the toppings,
add the okonomiyaki sauce, furikake (rice topping), toragashi (red pepper mix)
mayonnaise (which I didn’t have at this time ;p) and the dancing bonito flakes.
Mmmmmm not bad for my first attempt 🙂
I enjoy eating this because I love my dish with different flavors and textures. This was a bit crispy outside and soft & moist inside, a bit heavy for a midnight snack but it was defnitely oishi. Kanna would’ve been proud if she tasted it 😉
