I decided I wanted to try and make one of those Japanese omelettes that have the tomato ketchup and mayo sprayed all over them.
However when I went searching for recipes I came across something more interesting in Harumi’s Japanese cooking (p108): okonomiyaki, a Japanese-style pancake topped with egg. Apparently the name is a portmanteau of ‘okonomi’ meaning ‘anything you want’ and ‘yaki’ meaning cooked!
Harumi’s version has a pancake base, with squid, pork, cabbage & bean sprouts filling, topped with noodles then fried egg! I’m going to use bacon for the pork :)
It all looked good while cooking.
Things got a bit messy getting things out of the pans… but I managed to stack it all together, mostly…
Despite all varied parts, it actually tasted pretty good. Certainly good hangover food!
