Japanese savoury pancakes

Brought to you by Danielle Elliott

After cooking Japanese pancakes ‘Okonomiyaki’ for the 1st time last year, I love experimenting with them and adding different veg. The great thing is they use a wide variety of veg can be used as a  side, main or snack and the kids love them!!!

This is the way I make them now, if you want to give them a go. ……


1 cup of gluten free self-raising flour (you can use normal flour too)

4 eggs

2 1/2 cups finely sliced/shredded purple cabbage (or white if you want to hide it)

1 grated carrot

3 chopped spring onions

1/4 cup frozen peas, soaked in boiling water for 5 mins

3/4 cup/60g of vermicelli noodles prepped according to pack instructions.

You can add some cumin, turmeric or fresh ginger if you want to add more flavour and anti-oxidant power.


Mix the flour, eggs, cooked noddles and vegetables in a bowl.

Heat your pan with a bit of olive oil and spoon the mixture into the pan to cook the size pancakes you want. Cook on the first side for 3-5 minutes and then flip and cook the other side till crispy & golden.

You may like to serve with chilli sauce and sour cream or plain yoghurt. ⠀
