You might remember a little while ago that I was lucky enough to pick up a takoyaki pan from Japan City.
Takoyaki are one of my favourite dishes to order when I am at a Japanese restaurant. They are delicious balls of batter fried in a special pan that allows you to form the batter into round balls as it cooks.
Takoyaki generally contains small pieces of octopus and pickled ginger, but I have also tried takoyaki with a sweet corn filling. You could probably substitute any other delicious savoury filling if you are not keen on octopus!
It took a couple of tries to get the hang of using the pan, and a few trips to different shops to find all the ingredients. But it was worth it in the end!

These were absolutely delicious, and I am hoping to try making these again this weekend! They would also be great in a bento lunch!
