originally got the idea of making okonomiyaki after
reading Ranma 1/2. Well, in one of the more recent
issues Ukyou (the character whose schtick is cooking
okonomiyaki) acquired an assistant who kept botching
up the recipe due to stinginess. Thinning out the batter,
not enough toppings, et cetera. But one of his variants
was actually a hit: tiny okonomiyaki that only had one
topping. Hmm, why not try to make something like that?
I chopped up the cabbage into one-inch strips to make
it easier to pour, and made chibi okonomiyaki.
They didn't end up "silver dollar" size
- I'd need to cut the cabbage much finer than I did.
But, still, these came out kind of cool. Next time I'll
top them with jumbo shrimp so they really will only
need one topping.
And with this are steamed taro with okonomiyaki sauce;
steamed broccoli with Spanish
tamarinds; a fruit
salad made with kiwi fruit, mango
and canned palm hearts; and coconut
