Okonomiyaki  with Furikake

Okonomiyaki is a popular Japanese savory pancake dish that is often referred to as a "Japanese pizza" or "Japanese pancake." It typically consists of a batter made from flour, eggs, shredded cabbage, and various toppings and fillings, such as meat, seafood, or vegetables. Furikake is a Japanese seasoning made from a mixture of dried fish, seaweed, sesame seeds, and other ingredients.

To make Okonomiyaki with furikake, you can follow these general steps:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup chopped cooked meat or seafood (optional)
  • Furikake seasoning
  • Okonomiyaki sauce (a thick, sweet and savory sauce available at Asian grocery stores)
  • Japanese mayonnaise
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, water, and eggs. Whisk together until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Add the shredded cabbage, chopped scallions, and cooked meat or seafood (if using) to the batter. Mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of vegetable oil.
  4. Pour a portion of the batter onto the pan, shaping it into a round pancake shape, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  5. Cook the okonomiyaki for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until it becomes golden brown and crispy.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the okonomiyaki to a serving plate.
  7. Sprinkle furikake seasoning generously over the top of the okonomiyaki.
  8. Drizzle okonomiyaki sauce and Japanese mayonnaise in a crisscross pattern over the top.
  9. Optionally, you can garnish with additional chopped scallions or other toppings of your choice.
  10. Cut the okonomiyaki into slices and serve while it's still warm.

This recipe is just a basic guideline, and you can customize it by adding or substituting ingredients to suit your taste. Feel free to experiment with different toppings and fillings to create your own unique variation of Okonomiyaki. Enjoy!
