TAKOYAKI Party (Octopus Balls) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

How you make the batter is the key. My mom uses Takoyaki flour and tasty Dashi broth, then makes the batter bit loose and less salty. In this way we can eat Takoyaki forever with No Sauce 😂👍

Serving Takoyaki with Dashi broth is our typical family style. Sometimes we put sauce then pour over the Dashi but this time, no one used the sauce because the batter was a success. Making the batter from scratch is not easy for the beginners, so I recommend using Takoyaki flour for No Sauce like this one 😉

Takoyaki is a popular Japanese ball-shaped snack 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). Slightly crispy on the outside and creamy inside.
