I served an Online cooking class of Okonomiyaki to celebrate my guest’s 4th wedding anniversary.
Making Okonomiyaki is simple, but preparing a variety of Japanese unique ingredients is difficult ,especially abroad.
Nagaimo(Japanese yam), Tenkatsu(Tempura scraps), Okonomi sauce(Otafuku bland), Dried bonito flakes, Benishoga(Pickled red ginger), Dried green seaweed etc.
However, a few ingredients could be substituted as below.
Nagaimo ➡︎ Tofu or Potato or Potato starch
Okonomi sauce ➡︎ Worcester sauce , Oyster sauce , Ketchup and Sugar
Tenkatsu ➡︎ Potato chips
And I always customize the filling by adding Calamari, Cheese and Kimachi.
We celebrated their Wedding anniversary after cooking.
My online Okonomiyaki cooking class was a good gift to them.
