Cooking time

35 minutes

Fans of Japanese food will already know the many-splendoured virtues of okonomiyaki, savoury pancakes packed with flavour and amazing textural contrasts. Let’s make ours with a mixture of grated sweet potatoes, shredded cabbage, scallions, and the secret ingredient: rice flour, the key to the okonomiyaki’s singular toothsomeness. On the side, broccoli florets roasted in a mix of miso and ponzu offer a beautiful counterbalance. And because all good fried Japanese treats deserve a silky mayo dipping sauce, you’ll be making your own with a touch of teriyaki. Serve this to friends, and watch their jaws drop.

Roast the broccoli
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the broccoli into long, thin florets, including the stem. In a bowl, combine the miso and ponzu sauce; stir to combine thoroughly. On a lined sheet pan, toss the broccoli with ½ the miso-ponzu mixture and a drizzle of oil; season with S&P. Arrange the broccoli in a single, even layer. Roast in the oven, stirring halfway through, 15 to 18 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the broccoli roasts, peel and grate the sweet potatoes. Roughly chop the cabbage. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Prepare the okonomiyaki batter
In a large bowl, combine the grated sweet potato, chopped cabbage, white bottoms of the scallions, rice flour, all but 2 tbsp of the mayonnaise (double for 4 portions), ½ the sesame seeds and remaining miso-ponzu mix; season with the spice blend. Stir until just combined.

Cook the okonomiyaki
In a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a thin layer of oil on medium. Working in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan, add 2 tbsp of the batter to the pan for each okonomiyaki, flattening with the back of your spoon (be careful, the oil may splatter). The batter should make 6 to 8 okonomiyaki (double for 4 portions). Cook, 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer immediately to a plate lined with paper towel and season with S&P.

Make the teriyaki mayonnaise
While the okonomiyaki cook, in a small bowl, combine ½ the teriyaki glaze, the remaining mayonnaise and 1 tsp water (double for 4 portions); stir to combine thoroughly.

Plate your dish
Divide the miso-roasted broccoli and finished okonomiyaki between your plates. Drizzle the okonomiyaki with the teriyaki-mayonnaise and remaining teriyaki glaze. Garnish the okonomiyaki with the crushed nori, remaining sesame seeds and as many of the green tops of the scallions as you’d like. Bon appétit!
