Okonomiyaki - Japanese Savory Pancake

This is one of the products that I got from the "try the World" box.  I thought it would be  special if I try to make it for Father's Day.  My husband has been to Japan quite a few times when he was still in the Navy so he is  used to eating Japanese food.  This okonomiyaki kit is very easy to prepare.  I like the fact that the  instruction is available in four langues including  English, which is awesome.  
Okonomiyaki i-s a popular dish in Japan.  It is an omelette-like pancake  made with a variety of savory  toppings.  The kit includes the basic ingredients needed to  make the savory pancakes.  The pink bag  is the yum powder, the yellow bag is the tempura crisps, green bag is the seaweed.
How to  mix the batter:

  • Add 3/4 cup of water to a large bowl follwed by the yamn powder and mix until dissolved.  Add the okonomiyaki batter mix and blend until dissolved.

I did not  have  head cabbage  in the fridge so I just picked some fresh kale  from the garden and chopped it finely.  I think I had a cup of kale in there.  I added two eggs to the batter and then added the  kale and the  the tenka or the tempura  crisps.  
I cooked one side of the bacon to make sure that  the one I will put on top of the omelette  is already  cooked.
The batter makes two  pancake/omelette.  You can use an electric griddle or   just an ordinary frying pan.  Coat the pan with olive oil  in low heat and then  pour half of the batter.  Soread it into a circular shape.
Wait till it is golden brown and then put the  bacon on top.
Slowly flip the  pancake.
When both of the pancake  is done, sprinkle the  green seaweed and you can add hot sauce or any kind of sauce as well.  I used sriracha on mine.
I cut each pancake in four  slices and served it with  pineapples slices and takaokaya or seaweed.  
The kids thought it was weird to have pancake  tha is savory but they like it because of the bacon in it, lol.
The kale was perfect  for this recipe.  Hubby thought it was really good.  He gave it two thumbs up.

I love Okonomiyaki. It's so savory and tastes even better with Japanese mayo and Bonito flakes.
