I have read a great deal about these classic Osaka-style Okonomiyaki – described as everything from Japanese pancakes to pizza – but to me, they’re more like a Japanese take on the good old Kiwi corn fritter. The name translates as “Grilled what you like” and in Japan they’re made with grated nagaimo or yamaimo, a glutinous yam, but I’ve found they still work perfectly in this slightly simplified version. Feel free to add fillings “as you like” and enjoy for lunch or a casual dinner.
