Making Takoyaki


Ingredients:
boiled octopus (cut into bite-size pieces)
shallot (chopped)
prawns (boiled, peeled and chopped)
batter (dashi soup, flour, eggs)

Heat pan, when hot add oil followed by a layer of batter. Proceed to place prawns, shallot and octopus into each slot when done add a layer of batter to cover.

This part is hard to describe...as it cooks start to fold the the excess batter into a ball shape.

Work quickly!

Then flip the balls to ensure both sides are cooked evenly

Remove from pan

Top with Japanese Mayo, takoyaki sauce and bonito flakes (I forgot to buy seaweed)


Ta-da! It tasted awesome!

Finish with a glass of Japanese Plum wine and you'll be in heaven!
