Okonomi Yaki (Veggie Pancakes)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bergy

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.
