Asian Cuisine is a treasure of flavor and aroma, making it a big deal worldwide. Recently Japanese cuisine has gained popularity because people dig into its subtle flavors and acquired taste. Takoyaki is one such specialty of Japanese Cuisine. The term Tako means “octopus” and yaki means “fried.” This recipe originated in the mid-1930s in Osaka.
A street vendor who was experimenting came up with this new recipe. The vendor used octopus as an ingredient along with wheat flour. This recipe came to be known as takoyaki today. It is an octopus-filled ball of dough cooked in special takoyaki pans. Its texture is crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, with a few chunks of the octopus to chew. It is often served with the toppings of any sauce, Japanese mayo, and bonito flakes.
The history of takoyaki is very important to Osaka’s culture and it is celebrated at the Takoma Takoyaki Park. Enjoy this special taste of Japan through this cookbook if you are looking for something healthy and delicious.
