Takoyaki is one of my favorite snack, creamy inside with a bite of surprise in the core and slightly crispy on the outside. Takoyaki is best eaten while still piping hot with oozing sauce and mayonnaise. Since that cooking is my passion, trying to cook takoyaki is definitely on my list. So today after got the mold from my aunt (or snatch it exactly :P) i drag myself to the kitchen and create this lil round heaven, with a lot of moderation 😛
1 cup (125gr) cake flour
2 cup (480ml) cold water
1 tbs instant beef stock
salt and pepper to taste
scallion sliced to taste
leek sliced to taste
salt to taste
how to make:
1. On a bowl whisk together flour with cold water, add the beef stock,egg, season and mix well. set aside
2. Mix together filling ingredient and set aside
3. preheat your cast iron mold on a medium high heat and brush with oil.
4. pour the batter into the hot mold until 2/3 part of the mold, scatter the filling inside.
5. after a minute or so flip them 90o (with a bamboo skewer or a stick)so their uncooked inside is flowing out and make another part of a circle.
6. after another minute flip them upside down until u can see their round part.
7. continue flipping until they turn golden brown.
8. take them out and enjoy with takoyaki/okonomiyaki/tonkatsu sauce and mayonnaise.
if you find it hard or too lazy to shop you can omit the sauce and just go with mayonnaise, or if you prefer you can use whatever sauce that ready in your pantry (ketchup, hot sauce, soy sauce, tabasco, or even chocolate sauce if you dare). Or if you feel like making it from scratch, you can follow this recipe. I made mine with omitting garlic, ginger, and sake, since i’m so lazy, and my sauce end up great as another famous brand.
Happy cooking and g’luck!
