Takoyaki balls by Chelsey Roza

Ingredients
200g flower
2 eggs
450 ml water
Daishi broth

Filling
100g freshly cooked octopus cut into pieces
1 finely chopped piece of bunches of onions
Red Ginger
Tempura flakes

Toppings
Tokoyaki sauce
Japanese mayonnaise
Aosa seaweed powder and/or aonori
Katsuobushi bonito flakes

1.  Start making the batter. Take a large bowl and mix 2 eggs, 200 g flour, 450 ml water and a little dashi broth. Put this aside. When you have the ready made okonomiyaki flour, follow the instructions for making the batter and you are ready to go.

2.Place your takoyaki plate on the stove on medium heat and heat a small amount of oil in each hole.

3. Cut your octopus into small pieces. Place a piece of octopus in each of the semicircular holes and fill each hole upwards with the batter mixture. You can even run the batter out of the hole to make it easier to turn it over later.

4. Now you can add the finely chopped spring onion, red ginger and tempura flakes to each hole. The amount you add is up to you, but only a small amount of each gives enough flavour.

5. Once the takoyaki are about half done, about 1-2 minutes, you have to turn them over. The best way to do this is to use a small wooden skewer to pierce the outside of the batter and turn it into the hole. This takes some practice to run smoothly, so keep trying if you make a mess of it.

6. You can usually only turn each takoyaki around for about three quarters of the round, so let it boil a little more before turning it around again. By now, all your takoyaki should be round, so keep turning them in the holes to make sure they cook evenly on all sides. This takes about 3-4 minutes until it is golden brown on the outside.

7. Put a few takoyaki on a plate and rub them with lots of takoyaki sauce and Japanese mayonnaise. Then sprinkle a little seaweed powder and some bonito flakes on top and enjoy. Leave something to cool down and enjoy a hot meal.

Enjoy!!
