Takoyaki is a very casual fast food in Japan. It might not be easily found at Japanese restaurants in the US or other parts of world even though it is a very popular dish. Takoyaki tastes a little bit like round shaped , but it has a much different flavor from the Tako (octopus) cooked inside them. In most parts of Japan, people don’t treat Takoyaki as a meal. Many people typically think of Takoyaki as something you get from street vendors at festivals and events.
In western Japan, in the Kansai area where we are from on the other hand, Takoyaki is very popular not only as a snack but also as a meal. Many households in Kansai have Takoyaki pans at home so they can cook for dinner. Takoyaki is actually very filling since flour is used as a main ingredient just like pancakes and bread. With savory , similar to Okonomiyaki sauce (or even Tonkatsu sauce), it can be a very good main dish for dinner.
It is very easy to make Takoyaki batter, and it’s even simple to cook, however, you must have a Takoyaki pan. If you don’t have it, it’s not possible to make Takoyaki. Luckily, today we can easily buy online. Some Takoyaki pans are cast iron pans to use on a stove top. These work best on a gas stove. We tested on a flat electric stove, and it worked beautifully too, even though it took a little longer to heat up the pan and cook. They also sell that are portable and great for Takoyaki parties to cook right at the dinner table. If you decide to buy a Takoyaki pan, don’t forget to get a (turner). It often looks like a small ice pick, though some are flat on the end as well. If you don’t have one, you can use something pointy, or skinny and thinner towards the end like a skewer. (A fork does not work well.)
Takoyaki is literally baked or fried octopus, so if you don’t use octopus, is it not really Takoyaki anymore? ….that’s not true! Put whatever you want inside Takoyaki. We use cheese or sausage for kids, shrimp pieces when octopus is not available, vegetables like chopped cabbage, anything you want, really. They are best eaten hot right out of a pan, so get a Takoyaki pan and enjoy fresh home made Takoyaki!
