How to Make Monjayaki - Video Recipe

Monjayaki is a local dish of Tokyo. It is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients.

Ingredients are similar to Okonomiyaki (Japanese-style savory pancake) but very watery and less solid.

My darling is from Kansai (関西: the western region of the main Japanese island) so he prefers Okonomiyaki to Monja. LOL

To eat, you use a tiny metal spatula to scrape off the small portion of the cooked mixture. Obviously, it damages the pan, so I prefer to eat it out at the restaurant. haha

How to Make Monjayaki

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 2

500ml water
3 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
300g (10.6oz.) cabbage
10g (0.36oz.) Sakuraebi (dried small shrimp)
50g (1.8oz.) Tenkasu (crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter)
((you can add other ingredients))
kimchi, seasoned cod roe, cheese, corn, tuna, Mochi, noodle snacks, etc…

1. Place the solid ingredients on the pan. Cut and cook the ingredients.
2. Form the ingredients into a donut shape, then pour the batter in the middle of the donut and bring to a boil.
3. Mix everything up and leave it to be cooked. Eat by scraping off and browning a small portion of the mixture.
