Takoyaki Flour


I received a pack of Takoyaki flour in the mail recently. It was from a dear friend of mine, Jepunlauee. She insisted on sending me this flour after I asked her for a homemade recipe of Takoyaki batter when I saw her post pics of her cute daughter making this snack at home. Takoyaki is a Japanese snack that I'd purchase ever so often as it is my favourite.

Thank you Jepunlauee!



If you have no idea what Takoyaki is here is a picture of what it looks like.

Takoyaki is a special batter mix, cooked on the rounded mould (see below) and filled with diced octopus. Other flavours that are sold in Singapore Takoyaki vendors are ham and cheese and prawns. Once filled, they are turned with sharp sticks and served with Mayo, Okonomi Sauce, Bonito Flakes. In Singapore they are sold at S$2.30 per box of 3 balls.


The stove-top pan looks like this. Another version are the electric ones.



I had waited for her to go online because I wanted to thank her for the flour but I believe she is now busy with some family matters as she had made an emergency trip back to her hometown to be at her mother's side as her mother is ill. Her sister, Kacang had also flown back with her. Your thoughts are with me, whatever the outcome. Take good care, both of you.
