Tako means octopus and Yaki means frying. People living in Kansai sometimes cook it at home.


Takoyaki is a ball-shaped Japanese food made from wheat flour, diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger and etc. We cooked takoyaki using the takoyaki machine yesterday at home.

When we cook takoyaki at home, we include the chopped cabbage.

We usually use takoyaki powder sold in supermarkets. We mix it with water, eggs, salt, and so on. As soon as we pour the mixture, we put the chopped cabbage, diced octopus, pickled ginger, tempura scraps into the pan.

When the outsides are crispy enough, we cut and and turn them about 90 degrees using a chopstick to let the uncooked batter be cooked as well. We turn them over a little and little.

Takoyaki balls are completed in the next picture.

Lastly, we put takoyaki sauce, mayonnaise, dried bonito shavings, and aonori on the top.
