Made these over the weekend with a "Dutch pancake maker" that i bought from Woolies...For those who dont know what it looks like - Now there was something funny about this "Dutch" pancake maker...it was made in Asia somewhere and has an octopus cartoon on the grill top...I think it is a takoyaki grill, rebadged. Ingredients : Batter (should be on the thin side) - 1 2/3 cup flour 2 1/2 cup dashi soup - I use instant bonito stock powder from the asian markets. 2 eggs pinch salt. Now u heat the pan, pour in the batter and add: Click to view full size! chopped spring onion, chopped pieces of boiled octopus tentacles, pickled ginger, and some dried red shrimp if u want. Grill the takoyaki balls, flipping with a pick to make balls. Ie as the bottom forms, flip so the uncooked batter runs and makes the circle whole. When browned, remove takoyaki from the pan and place on a plate. Put sauce and mayonnaise on top and sprinkle bonito flakes. Click to view full size!
