Takoyaki - Video Recipe

Takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced octopus, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

When I was small, I cooked Takoyaki once a month at home. My mom gave me the pan we used then. However, as you can see, the cast iron pan is not easy to use. I recommend you getting a non-stick Takoyaki pan online! It is affordable and saves your time! haha
