Cooking Cooking: NA NA NA TAKOYAKI

When I was surfing on the internet I found takoyaki mix powder. I thought OMG NOW I CAN MAKE TRY TO MAKE IT BY MYSELF :D. But the problem was that I didn’t have a pan to make it in. I came with the idea to make it with a popcake maker, and I ordered the mix. The next problem was the pop cake maker because I didn’t have one. But this year ( I ordered the mix last year around December) I got one for my birthday.


Now I want to share my takoyaki experience with you!


If you don’t know what takoyaki is, takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling.
It’s made of batter, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

I don’t like fish and octopus (but I want to try the real takoyaki in Japan ) so this is the recipe that I followed:


– 200g (7oz.) takoyaki flour
– 2 eggs
– 600cc water
– cooking oil

– Smoked chicken , in pieces
– tenkasu (tempura scraps)
– aonegi (green onion)
– beni shoga (red pickled ginger)

- okonomiyaki sauce
– mayonnaise
– katsuobushi (bonito flakes)
– aonori (green laver)


  1. In a bowl, mix takoyaki flour, the eggs, and water (add little by little).
  2. Set up the popcake maker and grease the molds with cooking oil and wait until it’s hot
  3. Pour batter into the molds to the full.
  4. Put beni shoga, tenkasu, aonegi, and the smoked chicken in the molds.
  5. Close the popcake maker and wait for around 8 minutes
  6. If they golden brown you can take them out.

How to serve:
Place on a plate and top with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, katsuobushi, and aonori.


Here some pictures of my process

IMG_0594My first takoyaki! those ones failed but the other ones were perfect

IMG_0596Add some yummieness and it’s complete!

My takoyaki were a little different because I forgot the beni shoga and I couldn’t find katsuobushi  so I left that out but they turned out really good! I really like the flavor .
