Okonomiyaki is a dish I've tried before with mediocre results. Previous versions have been heavy with lots of moisture-laden vegetables and a thick batter that resulted in dense pancake. This version from Midge at Food 52 won the "Best Street Food" competition and I couldn't agree more. You could certainly add some more veggies - pretty much whatever is in your fridge. We had it straight up with just cabbage and green onion, a lot more like a potato latke than a zucchini fritter. The best part was the Sriracha mayo that I made with homemade mayo because I had some leftover egg yolks floating around my fridge. Even if you think you don't like cabbage, give this a try. It stays a bit crunchy in the middle while the cabbage on the edges become tender and sweet. Not to mention, it takes about 20 minutes from fridge to table.
