Making Takoyaki

Filed under: school, seikatsu — myyearinjapan @ 5:10 pm

Takoyaki is a fried dumpling filled with octopus (tako in Japanese). The dumpling also get filled with things such as cabbage, tenkasu(tempura crumbs), and pickled ginger. The cooked takoyaki balls are then covered with mayonaise, a glaze sauce, fish shavings and seaweed pieces.

Some of the other people in my dorm borrowed a takoyaki machine and made some recently. Here are some picture of the process of making the takoyaki.

I like the cute picture of the octopus on the takoyaki machine.
