Known as Japanese comfort food, okonomiyaki is a savory pancake that is all at once sloppy, crispy, gooey, savory, sweet, and umami. Our okonomiyaki is made of red cabbage and topped with pickled pink ginger, scallions, and dried seaweed, but since okonomi translates to "how you like," you can make okonomiyaki with any mix of ingredients and toppings you choose. Recipe adapted from Just One Cookbook.
Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat. (You will cook one okonomiyaki pancake in a skillet, so you may have multiple skillets on the stove if you feel comfortable.) Once hot, add 1/4th of the cabbage and batter mixture and spread in a circle on the pan. You can make it as thin or as thick as you like. Cover and cook 5 minutes. Once the bottom has browned, flip over, cover, and cook 5 more minutes. Transfer to a plate.
