Preparation

  1. Mix the flour, egg, dashi and the soy sauce until smooth without making any clumps.

  2. Chop the spring onions and octopus. You can chop the octopus to your liking.

  3. Heat the Takoyaki cast iron on a gas cooker or camping cooker. Put lots of oil on it and wait for a brief moment.

  4. Once the oil is hot enough, shake the dough into the cast iron form until the bowl is ¾ full. In the next step the octopus, tenkasu and the spring onions are added to the smooth mass.

  5. Turn the Takoyaki after 3 minutes. This takes a lot of skill and especially lots of training. Just give it a go.

  6. Once the Takoyaki balls are crisp and brown, take them out of the cast iron and garnish with the mayo, the Takoyaki-sauce as well as with the bonito flakes (Katsuobushi).

  7. Enjoy! Ittadakimasu :)

Table of Contents:

    Takoyaki are round octopus balls that are very popular in the Kansai region (Kyoto). Those balls are sold in every little corner in Japan, just like the hamburger in U.S.. You can find the yummy takoyaki at train stations, festivals or in shopping centres. Together with Okonomiyaki it’s one of Japan’s favourite street food. 

    Special preparation

    There are different forms used for making Takoyaki, the Takoyaki - cast iron. Those mostly consist of 16 deep round shapes that form the balls into their typical shape. These days, the catering industry uses electric Takoyaki - cast iron that shapes the balls fully automatically. You can find some fantastic videos on that.Traditionally the balls get their form by turning and rolling. In order to avoid burning the fingers, an iron rod is preferably used for this method. 

    The ingredients make all the difference 

    Takoyaki is prepared with Japanese mayonnaise, a Takoyaki sauce that is similar to Okonomiyaki-sauce, which in taste is similar to Anonori and Katsuobushi (tuna flakes). 

    Buying Octopus

     The most important ingredient, octopus is probably the hardest to get. You’ll most probably find it only frozen in Asian supermarkets. But at least you can get the Japanese mayonnaise and the other ingredients at the same time.
