Takoyaki Recipe

Takoyaki is a popular Japanese street food that consists of savory octopus-filled balls. Here is a detailed recipe on how to make this delicious dish at home:

  • - 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • - 1 1/2 cups dashi stock

  • - 2 eggs

  • - 1/2 lb cooked octopus, chopped into small pieces

  • - 1/4 cup green onions, chopped

  • - 1/4 cup pickled ginger, chopped

  • - 1/4 cup tenkasu (tempura scraps)

  • - Takoyaki sauce

  • - Japanese mayonnaise

  • - Aonori (dried seaweed flakes)

  • - Katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, dashi stock, and eggs. Mix until smooth and well combined.

2. Heat a takoyaki pan over medium heat and brush each mold with oil. Pour the batter into each mold, filling them almost to the top.

3. Add a piece of octopus, some green onions, pickled ginger, and tenkasu into each mold. Use a skewer or chopsticks to gently mix the ingredients into the batter.

4. Cook the takoyaki for a few minutes until the bottom is golden brown and crispy. Use a takoyaki turner or skewer to flip each ball over and cook the other side until golden brown.

5. Continue flipping and cooking the takoyaki until all sides are crispy and cooked through.

6. Remove the takoyaki from the pan and place them on a serving plate. Drizzle with takoyaki sauce and Japanese mayonnaise.

7. Sprinkle with aonori and katsuobushi before serving.

8. Enjoy your homemade takoyaki hot and fresh.

Takoyaki is best enjoyed immediately after cooking, as they tend to lose their crispiness if left to sit for too long. Serve them as a snack or appetizer at your next gathering and impress your guests with this delicious Japanese treat.
