As its name suggests in Japanese, okonomiyaki means “cook as you want“. There are no rules for ingredients.
I made a recipe that tastes close to the real thing okonomiyaki Japanese but adapted for the French.
It is one of the daily dishes for the Japanese, like pizza for the Italians or crepe for the French.
