Monjayaki – Tonari recipe at Kaibutsu-kun


Learn how to make the nun that Haru so much called Shizu to eat! Monjayaki (or simply “nun”) is a liquid pancake much like okonomiyaki. It is a typical Tokyo dish and very popular in the Kanto region. It is known for being a dish to enjoy with friends made in a size for several people.

This dish appeared and became popular after World War II, when rice production was scarce. To make the nun, just mix the ingredients and fry in a frying pan. It is poured and eaten with a small spatula directly on the hot plate. It's a very free recipe… it even reminds us of our free way of making omelets of different flavors.

While okonomiyaki is a pancake for one person, monjayaki is prepared as a giant pancake for a table. It is usually more consistent and crunchy with a pancake texture that looks like melted and burnt cheese. Monjayaki dough is usually more liquid than Okonomiyaki.
