Simple Okonomiyaki “Japanese Savory Pancake” (Bilingual Eng-Indonesia)

This afternoon, carving for Okonomiyaki, Japanese savory pancake, made of flour and stock, filled with cabbage and green onion, topped with Okonomikayi sauce, nori and bonito flakes (do’t forget the mayonnaise). The point of Okonomiyaki is soft and smooth pancake instead of hard one. I used Yama-imo (Japanese winter yam) for special texture in my Okonomiyaki, the grated Yama-imo is light rubbery and sticky. Here is the recipe for it.



  • 4 tablespoons of cake flour (tepung untuk cake)
  • 3 tablespoons of chicken stock (kaldu ayam)
  • 1 tablespoon of grated Yama-imo (yam khas Jepang)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 egg (telur ayam)
  • little salt (sedikit garam)
  • black pepper (lada hitam)
  • 1 cup of chopped cabbage (kubis yang diiris kecil-kecil)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped green onion (bawang prei yang dirajang kecil)
  • 3-4 stripes of bacon (bacon –> iris menjadi 4 potong)


  • 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce (saus tomat)
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (saus Worcester)
  • 1 teaspoon of soy sauce (kecap asin)


  • some thin sliced nori (rumpus laut Jepang –> rajang kecil)
  • mayonnaise (Mayones)
  • bonito flake


  1. Preheat a griddle/ TEFLON/ non stick pan on MEDIUM-HIGH. Pour 1 teaspoon of oil. (Panaskan Teflon dengan api MEDIUM-BESAR. Beri sedikit minyak goreng.)
  2. Make the batter : Mix together flour, stock, salt, Yama-imo, pepper, egg and baking powder. Put in the cabbage and green onion. Mix well. (Membuat adonan: Campur rata tepung, kaldu, garam, Yama-imo dan merica, telur ayam dan baking powder. Masukkan kubis rajang dan bawang prei rajang. Aduk rata.)
  3. Pour slightly the pancake mix onto the pan and press it making 2 cm tall disk. Directly place in bacon on the top of the pancake. Cook for 2 minutes. (Tuang perlahan adonan dadar pada wajan dan tekan rata hingga tinggi dadar 2 cm. Segera letakkan irisan bacon diatas dadar dan masak selama 2 menit. )


  1. Slightly and carefully flip the pancake and cook the pancake again on MEDIUM for 5 minutes. (Hati-hati balik okonomiyaki dan masak lagi dengan api MEDIUM selama 5 menit.)


  1. Put the pancake on a plate and brush with Okonomiyaki sauce. Sprinkle with nori, spread some mayonnaise and the last, put on the bonito flake. Serve warm. (Letakkan Okonomiyaki pada sebuah piring, olesi tipis dengan sausnya, taburi dengan nori, beri mayones secukupnya dan terakhir letakkan bonito flakes. Sajikan hangat!)
