    I've been making okonomiyaki for many years, the way a Japanese woman taught me. The word translates into "grilled whatever you like" ~ & the Japanese do add all kinds other meats & vegs/seaweed to it, besides the basics vegs in this recipe. I've always thought of the batter as very plain, a canvas upon which to add colors, textures, flavors & nutrition. Your version is interesting in that you add some flavor to the batter by using sugar & milk. Thanks for sharing this.

    Traditionally the mountain yam "yamaimo" is used. It looks like a forearm and when it is peeled and grated, it is quite slimy, but it is so good when cooked. In Japan and in some parts of the US where there are big Japanese communities, you can go to Okonomiyaki restaurants and make these at the table- that's right get all splattered and oil, even with the aprons that they provide. I personally prefer to make them at home- giant size- so that when its all over I can quickly run into the shower! Japanese actually like it with mayonaise (Kewpie brand of course!) and Okonomiyaki sauce (Bulldog brand of course!) but it is also good with a ponzu-type of sauce with vinegar and soy sauce, or a Fruit and Vegetable Sauce (Bulldog brand again!)
    Thanks for posting by the way!
