Healthy Microwave Okonomiyaki - Video Recipe

This is an award winning recipe :D

Silicon tools are now popular in Japan. There was a contest using a microwavable silicon pot and I won a grand prize! You can substitute it with a deep microwavable deep dish or container, of course.

I hope all ingredients are available around!

Note: Depending on the heat of the microwave, cooking time may differ.

Healthy Microwave Okonomiyaki

Number of servings: 1

Necessary Equipment:
microwavable deep silicone pot, dish or container

120g (4.2oz.) thinly sliced pork

2 tbsp. tenkasu (crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter)

* 2 tbsp. flour
* 1 egg
* 3g (0.1oz.) katsuobushi (bonito flakes)
* okonomiyaki sauce

1. Grate the yam and mix A in a large bowl. Add shredded cabbage and tenkasu, and mix well.
2. In a microwavable deep silicone pot (dish or container), spread 1/3 of the mixture (1.) in a thin layer, then place 1/3 of thinly sliced pork on top. Repeat the steps for 2 more times.
3. Cover the pot (or cover plastic wrap) and microwave for 10 minutes at 500 watts. *Depending on the heat of the microwave, cooking time may differ.
4. When you uncover, be careful as steam and water are very hot. Top with B and serve!

  1. i love okonomiyaki (and the sauce!), it tastes very yummy:) it's interesting that there's yam in the recipe. do all okonomiyakis have yam in them too? i used to think it's just flour!

    haha u're quite right abt the onigiri being alittle strong flavoured, i was way too generous with the seasoning. i didnt have kitchen weighing scale etc. so i had to estimate, n the estimation went wrong ><

  2. p.s. i also love the korean version, kimchi pancake. very similar to okonomiyaki, but its main ingredient is KIMCHI~ yumms *_*

  3. hi mica,‬

    ‪you know okonomiyaki and the sauce! that's great ;)‬

    ‪good question!!! yes! all okonomiyaki contains yam, and the okonomiyaki flour sold at stores contains yam powder! in that way you don't have to grate yam… but it is always delicious if you grate the fresh one, you know!‬

    by seeing the color, i think half the amount of the seasoning is enough ;) but don't worry! you can do it the next time!!! hehe

  4. yep mica!!! i love korean ver, too!!! we call that chijimi in japanese.

  5. Love it Ochi! =D love your youtube videos! =D xx

  6. hi candy,

    thanks!!! i will upload new one soon :D

  7. Hi! I love okonomiyaki! Just to note for US people (maybe others as well). In the US we have a sweet potato also called a yam. This is different from the yam used in okonomiyaki, which is a kind called nagaimo.

  8. yes, it's hard to find nahaimo. I'm from New Zealand.
