Does anyone have TMX conversion to make okonomiyaki?
Thank you.

Hi Dede, it's Japanese savoury pancake with cabbage.  I might serve it with TMX mayonnaise and tomato sauce.

Thank you JD  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*  will try this out, hope kids like this.

Love okonomiyaki. I'd imagine you could chop the cabbage following coleslaw directions, set aside and then do the batter?

Sounds interesting. Let us know how they go, I must admit I do usually like to see reviews before I give something a try. I think its that I don't like wasting ingredients if I thing it wouldn't get eaten.

Wow!! Thanks for the request Denzelmum. Never heard of 'em but made them tonight thanks to JD's link. They are a fantastic 'slack night' meal in front of the telly watching footy. Kinda like a springroll in a pikelet. Kids and hubby give them a thumbs up.  :D

Wow, you're quick Nay-nay!  Dede, one good review from Nay-Nay.  I was working today, late to pick up DD from after school care and missed the bus, decided to have left over nasi kuning (Indonesian yellow rice) leftover from the other day for the kids.

Nay-nay, I was wondering how many this recipe served.  Thinking of making it tomorrow (swimming night) as you say it's quick for a slack night!

I think it was about 9 - 10 large ones. I must say I ate 3 and was stuffed very full. I also didn't mention that I think there was way to much mix for the TMX so I had my very large mixing bowl that everything got mixed in. I milled the cheese and put it in bowl then cabbage,carrot, shallot whizzed and in bowl then the wet ingredients and flour whizzed and mixed into bowl - As I mentioned I have never heard of these before and had no expectation as to what they are suppose to be like so added a couple teaspoons of baking powder so they had a little air like a pikelet and we did enjoy them.  ;)

Thank you Denzelmum for your original request, Judydawn for tracking down the recipe and Nay-Nay for your "tweaks".

We all loved this recipe, vegetarians and omnivores alike!  How quick and easy is it with TMX--imagine all that grating if you didn't have one! For those who give this recipe a shot, Nay-nay is absolutely right, the mix is way to much for the TMX bowl, so I also milled the cheese and tipped into a large mixing bowl, then chopped the veg, tipped into the bowl,then mixed the batter and sitirred it into the other ingredients.  I also added a few tsps of baking powder. I made 10 pancakes about the size of a small saucer.  I served it with thermomix mayo and bbq sauce.  When you buy them the sauces are often squirted on in a lattice like pattern, but I just dabbed on the mayo.  Next time I'm at an Asian grocers, I will look out for real okonmiyaki sauce.

Thanks again everyone for a healthy, tasty and easy meal idea!

For just the 2 of us, I was going to make half quantity Lellyj, do you think that quantity would fit back into the TMX OK?
Just loving the reviews of this one and can't wait to find out for myself what it tastes like - maybe Wednesday night's tea.

Judy, I just tested the volume of my mixing bowl with the tmx jug and yes I think a half mix would fit in, but it was no drama to dump the cheese and veg into a bowl and then stir through the batter either.  I should have pointed out that I used a standard 375 ml tin of evaporated skim milk as that's what I had in the cupboard and only added 50 ml of water.

I hope you and your husband enjoy it too.

Thank you, guess I will play it by ear with the quantity of liquid then - is it supposed to be a thick batter or thin (before adding everything back into it).
