Asian Keto Okonomiyaki Recipe

Asian cuisine is getting more and more popular day by day. The reason for this is that these foods are uniquely delicious and healthy. The world is really lucky to have such a cuisine.

So how did we find out about this awesome cuisine? This, of course, did not happen all of a sudden.

The history of the spread of Asian foods to the rest of the world is as old as the discovery of America.

When it was realized that there were new transportation routes in the New World, food and the food cultures of different countries started to move from continent to continent.

The beginning of widespread and popularization of certain Asian dishes in the last twenty years dates back to 19th century America.

Immigrants from the Canton region of China were settling in California. Thus begins the story of America’s meeting with this cuisine.

Only the Chinese ate in the small restaurants that were opened in America at the beginning. After many years, young urbanites who found Chinese food exotic made it even more popular.

Keto Okonomiyaki Recipe

Asian cuisine is very popular these days with a variety of dishes to choose from. One popular dish from Japan is the Okonomiyaki and we've made a keto vegan recipe that you can try!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


For the Pancake

  • Less than 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • ¼ medium size cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk powder
  • 60 grams of soy flour
  • Medium size fresh ginger
  • Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Shoyu Mayo

  • Soy sauce
  • Vegan mayo
  • Sweetener

For The Top

  • 1 Avocado
  • Nori sprinkle


Step 1

You can start by preparing the ingredients.

Cut the ginger into thin slices like a potato. They should resemble a match in thickness and size, perhaps a little thicker.

Then slice the cabbage and put it in a bowl. If you have these two ingredients ready, you can start making the pancake.

Get a deep mixing bowl for this.

Put the soy flour in the mixing bowl.

Add 1 tablespoon of psyllium to it.

Add salt too.

Step 2

The basis for the pancake is almost ready. To continue:

Put sliced cabbages in this powder mixture.

Add the whole ginger.

Now you can add the water. But add it in a controlled way, little by little, checking the consistency by mixing it with your hand.

Add the remaining cabbage slices and add a little more water and keep mixing until you get a sticky consistency.

There is a good test for those who think about how to make the consistency as desired. Take a fist-sized piece of the mixture and make a ball in your hand.

If the ingredients stick together enough to take the shape of a ball, you have done this job.

Step 3

Now get a small bowl.

Put about 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise in it.

Add 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. If you like the taste of soy sauce, you can add more than 1 tablespoon. The same can be done by reducing it for those who don’t like soy.

Mix well and taste. If it needs something, you can add it. For example, if you think the soy is too much, you can add a little more mayonnaise.

Add a pinch of sweetener. This step is optional. If you have added the sweetener, mix it for a while.

Step 4

Now you can move on to cooking the pancake. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts. Make round shapes and start preheating your pan.

Add coconut oil to the preheated pan. Continue processing on medium heat. When the oil is completely melted, take 1 portion of pancake dough.

Place it inside the pan while it is still around. Spread into the pan with the spatula or back of a spoon and lower the heat

Try to keep the round shape. Don’t let the thick dough make you think that things are going wrong. Because we want exactly that thickness.

Continue cooking by pressing a little with a spatula and giving it a flat round shape.

Let it fry like this for a while.

Then, using a plate, turn the dough over. Let the other side cook.

At this stage, you can add a little more coconut oil to the pan if you think it is needed. Both sides should get a golden-brown color. If it is not enough, you can continue frying.

Step 5

Fry the remaining 2 pieces of cabbage pancake dough in the same way.

Place the cooked ones on a flat surface such as a cutting board or plate.

Take 2 tablespoons of the mayonnaise mixture, pour it over the pancake and spread it on the surface.

Crush a ripe avocado, take 1 tablespoon of it and place it in a flat circle in the middle of the pancake.

Sprinkle nori around.

To continue decorating, take the mayonnaise into a bag, make a thick hole in the bag and squeeze it over the pancake to decorate it.

Cut it into slices like pizza and voila! It’s perfectly ready.
