This has always one of my favorite things to eat in Japan and I was quite happy to find the premix Okonomiya flour from Dasio which makes it even easier to make this tasty dish at home.


Ingredients (1-2 pax) 

  • 100gm of Dasio Okonomiyaki mix
  • 90ml water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 – 1/2 of a small cabbage
  • Some frozen mixed veggies
  • 200gm of bacon or thinly sliced pork belly
  • A bit of Olive oil
  • Japanese mayo

Okonomiyaki Brown Sauce

  • 3 tbsp of tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp of soya sauce


  1. Cut or shred cabbage into small pieces
  2. Mix water, egg plus okonomiyaki mix in a big bowl until there are no lumps
  3. Cut some of the bacon / pork belly into small pieces
  4. Mix both cabbage and the meat into the batter – there will be enough for 4 portions.
  5. Heat olive oil in frying pan and scoop in one portion.
  6. Flatten the portion to ensure even and fast cooking
  7. Pan fry for about 2-3 minutes
  8. Add few pieces of bacon / pork belly on top of the pancake
  9. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes -try not to add too much batter as it might not cook thoroughly.
  10. Check that pancake is cooked and serve hot with sauce and mayo
