Tips & Note

This okonomiyaki is jam-packed with yam potatoes and the outside has a lovely crispy finish because of the potato starch and baking powder. It's important to keep the frying pan hot. To make a nice plump okonomiyaki, shred the cabbage really finely and mix lightly. It's so delicious with ponzu sauce on top!
