    Bergy's Note:

    These patties may remind you of Tempura but are really quite different. Serve them with a nice spicy sauce or with soy sauce. Some like to put butter on them. It depends on your meal or if you are eating them as a snack. They are very tasty. The number of srvings will depend on how you are using them. They make excellent appetizers if you make tiny pancakes

      perhaps labeling this recipe okonomiyaki is a bit misleading. for a more authentic okonomiyaki recipe, don't use evaporated milk, brown sugar, or whole wheat flour. use a fine ground flour, or you can find okonomiyaki flour at asian grocery stores. i usually add grated mountain yam to the batter. secondly, if you are going to add meat, the typical thing to add would be thin sliced pork and/or seafood like fresh or dried shrimp and calamari. finally, the typical way they are served is smothered in okonomiyaki sauce, flaked nori, japanese mayo, and red pickled ginger.

      My mother has essentially this same recipe in her recipe box and used to make it every now and then; it's really good over hot rice. I experimented with the veggies I happened upon in my refrigerater: onions, mushrooms, spinach and red bell pepper. Not bad at all--the red pepper gave it a whole new flavor. I usually substitute tofu for the meat, but I didn't have any. I put in walnut pieces, which was delicious. P.S. don't try to saute the veggies unless you can find a way to make the final product not so dough-y

      These are tasty, but I'm not sure why they would be called okonomi-yaki. This is much more like chijimi, the korean savory pancake. There's a very different process to okonomiyaki -- plus you'd need to add pickled ginger to the fillings and fish broth (dashi) to the batter to make it taste like the Japanese food. Again -- tasty recipe, but not really okonomiyaki -- it shouldn't remind anyone of tempura...
