    Homemade Takoyaki

    I love Takoyaki and have been thinking of making it at home, so when my sister-in-law gave me a Takoyaki pan (along with a packet of Takoyaki mix) for Christmas, I was over the moon! “Takoyaki” is “Octopus Balls”.. essentially flour batter filled with octopus pieces and tempura scraps then grilled in a Takoyaki pan til slightly crispy. When done right, the result is a piping hot, slightly crispy ball with a gooey, cheesy interior (I always add cheese!). ย I don’t particularly like octopus, so the filling I use include shrimp, bacon, ham, sausage and lots of cheese! You can use whatever other ingredients you like. And because I don’t…
