Hiroshima Okonomiyaki Recipe | Cooking with Dog


Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” First, let’s make the batter for okonomiyaki. Combine the cake flour and water in a bowl. Mix it with a balloon whisk until there are no pockets of dry flour. Let the batter sit for ten minutes in order for it to reach the correct consistency. Meanwhile, remove the core of the cabbage. Take out the center part and then shred the leaves. Now, let’s make Hiroshima Okonomiyaki. Coat a heated griddle with vegetable oil. Stir the batter and then pour it onto the griddle. Spread the batter into a round shape using the back of the ladle. Make sure to leave a bit of batter in the bowl for later use. Sprinkle on the bonito powder. Place the shredded cabbage onto the batter and sprinkle on more bonito powder. Layer the moyashi bean sprouts on the cabbage. Crumble on the ikaten, deep-fried dried squid coated with batter. Finally, line up the pork belly slices on top and cook for about 5 minutes. Make sure the okonomiyaki isn’t stuck to the griddle. Season the pork slices with the salt and the pepper. Stir the remaining batter and pour it onto the okonomiyaki. This will help to combine the vegetables and also prevent the pork from getting tough. Now, flip the okonomiyaki with the turners. Gather the scattered vegetables and reshape the okonomiyaki. And now, coat the griddle with vegetable oil and add the fresh yakisoba noodles. Sprinkle on the sake, salt, and the pepper. Divide the noodles in half and stir-fry the yakisoba. Add the okonomiyaki sauce. Continue to stir-fry, distributing the sauce evenly. Shape the noodles into a circle and brown the other side. Now, lift the okonomiyaki with the turners and place it onto the noodles. Clean the griddle with a dampened kitchen towel and then recoat it with oil. Add the egg, break the yolk, and shape it into a circle. Quickly place the okonomiyaki onto the fried egg and then flip it over. Coat the okonomiyaki with a generous amount of okonomiyaki sauce. Sprinkle on the bonito powder and the aonori seaweed. Finally, top with the chopped spring onion leaves and now it is ready to serve. Hiroshima Okonomiyaki is distinguished by its thin crepe-like batter and thick layers of toppings. To fully cook the inside, preheat the griddle to a high heat. You can also use udon, soba or pasta instead of yakisoba noodles. Good luck in the kitchen.

  1. I really appreciate for you sharing some authentic Japanese recipes. I would love to do these recipes but it's so hard to find some Japanese ingredients 😢😭

  2. This is the nicest okonomiaki recipe I have seen it looks REALLY good !i like that it's not really doughy.😸

  3. Me and my dad made this recipe together a few times. It is delicious with a soft and custard-like center. We found Okonomi sauce at a nearby H-Mart.

  4. I’ve made cake-less okonomiyaki before, and it’s anazing.

    Could the process be done in a non-stick frying pan? Or is the extra space of the griddle crucial?

  5. Chef is so skilled! I'm too nervous to try Hiroshima style okonomiyaki because if I make a mistake, the whole thing will come apart and break! Chef's okonomiyaki is beautiful and neat and looks super tasty! I think I will need practice before I can try to make it.

  6. This is easily something you could make using ingredients bought from any supermarket. Thanks!

  11. 당췌 정체를 알 수 없는 음식인데 한국에선 잘 본 적이 없는데 일본에서는 파는 듯…

  12. I like it so much. I often eat Okonomiyaki while I was at Hiroshima, I like the taste of one shop near Hiroshima University. He use only twin eggs in his cooking.

  13. I miss Japan. Okonomiyaki and takoyaki were both big favorites of mine. I do still make it myself, but it never compares to what I had when I was in Japan!
