Monjayaki (Japanese Style Savoury Pancake)
R00822_Monjayaki


Monjayaki is a local dish of Tokyo, a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients which are similar to Okonomiyaki but a lot more watery and less solid. Monjayaki tastes best when it is piping hot, and is traditionally eaten straight off the hot plate with a small spatula called moji-bera. The proper way to eat Monjayaki is to scrape a small portion with the moji-bera and press down on it to get the piece to stick to your spatula.
Cooking Time: < 15mins

  5. Mix everything up to form a pancake and let it cook thoroughly.
