Okonomiyaki | Japanese Pancakes

Okonomiyaki is Japanese pancake made of eggs & flour mixed with few veggies, noodles & topped with a special sauce to complete the recipe. The name okonomiyaki means “As you like it” or “What to like it” & sure you can literally add anything you like. I have seen few recipe which kept on adding & adding lot of layers to this pancake. 
Okonomiyaki pancakes are topped with a special sauce named as Okonomiyaki sauce. But to customize it I followed the recipe below I mentioned & customized it to our taste buds. me & hubby like spicy things, so I added some sriracha sauce to kick some heat {Though it wasn’t enough for us :)}. Try these breakfast pancakes, sure you will love them.
