Literally translating as “fried stuff you like”, okonomiyaki is one of the reasons why I'm in love with Japanese food. My version of this cabbage based savoury pancake is simple, easy and quick to prepare. I use prawns, and store bought pickled ginger for a fun sushi inspired mix. —jessicabrook

In This Recipe
To make the batter place the flours and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and eggs and whisk until smooth. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
Add the cabbage, plums, pickled ginger, prawns and half the green onions and mix until combined.
Place a non stick frying pan or flat grill pan over medium heat and lightly brush with oil. Spoon a quarter of the mixture into the pan and spread to a 15cm circle. Cook for 6-7 minutes.
Turn and cook for a further 5 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.
To serve drizzle with mayonnaise, sprinkle with bonito flakes and remaining spring onions.
