For this week’s cooking club, Tammi also showed us how to make a Japanese Cabbage Pancake. This seems like a simplified version of Okonomiyaki that Yumiko made. Yumiko’s Okonomiyaki was awesome and had a lot more ingredients. Tammi uses prawns and cabbage — a simpler version but much more quicker to make.
There are only 5 ingredients in this recipe:
- 1/3 piece of a small cabbage
- 6-7 pieces of prawns
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper
You may substitute the prawns with mushrooms, green onion, peppers or carrot if you prefer a vegetarian pancake. For those who prefer other meat can also substitute the prawns with diced ham, diced cooked chicken, bacon, cheese, etc.
The pancake is great for a quick snack or brunch. Thanks again to Tammi for such a simple and healthy recipe. I will definitely make this for my family and will try out a few different ingredients. I think it would also be great with some thick sauce but got to figure what sauce goes well with it. Anyone has any recommendation for a good sauce for this?
