The Okonomi-yaki Cookery

This is how to cook Hiroshima's okonomi-yaki using hot plate at home.

  1. Spread base(A mixture of flours, water, and etc.,) .
    Hot plate's temperature is medium position. When you spread base you make a circle quickly from core to out avoiding run through same place. Diameter is about 20cm.
  2. Put grained fish and tang on the base.
  3. Hot plate's temperature is high position(over 200℃).
    Put a full bowl of cabbage.
  4. Place fried flours on the cabbage.
    ※It is delicious to put teared fried dry squid.

  5. Put sliced stone leek.

  6. Put bean sprouts on the stone leek.

  7. Put sliced porks on the whole.
    Place three sliced porks avoiding overlapping each other.
  8. Pour base mixture on top.

  9. Lift carefully and turn okonomi-yaki bottoms up.

  10. Separate noodles. (Use salad oil for separating
    steamed noodles. Use water for separating boiled noodles.)
    Put contents such as vegetables into base.
  11. Fry noodles with yakisoba sauce beside okonomi-yaki.

  12. Make noodles roundly.
    During those process, vegetables are steamed.
