OCHIKERON Recipe: Okonomiyaki グルテンフリーお好み焼き

March 2023 (vol. 185)

Okonomiyaki is Japanese savory pancake.

I know ingredients are hard to get overseas, so here I will show you how to enjoy Okonomiyaki using the ingredients available overseas 🙂

Instead of using flour, I used a lot of cabbage. Perfect for those who are on gluten free diet 🙂

Of course, you can add more fillings if you like!!!
