Podcast with Virtuelicious – Pancakes

Are you looking for inspiration to make this pancake day a bit different? If you love pancake day as much as we do then you’ll love this podcast!

Avni Gohil, Queen of Quick Cooking, invited me to join her in a podcast the other day. Avni, a Thermomix customer, fan and business owner of Virtuelicious, main aim is helping you spend less time in the kitchen. Her meal kits and planner are fabulous and I’m not just saying that. I was blown away when I used her hummus and falafel kit. We did a Tasty Thursday session together last year.

So this time, Avni invited to me join her podcast to have a chinwag about our favourite pancake recipes including Indian and Japanese pancakes. We discuss how to make pancakes that are suitable for different occasions and food intolerances.

Here’s the YouTube video link:

If you have enjoyed the podcast and are here for the first time, why don’t you book yourself on a Thermomix demonstration to see what all the fuss is about.

Enjoy one of the easiest and most delicious delicacies in Japanese cuisine with this Thermomix okonomiyaki savoury pancake recipe. Okonomiyaki literally means ‘grilled as you like it‘, and is made from seasoned flour, cabbage, and various fresh meats and vegetables mixed together and cooked in a frying pan just like a pancake.

Prepare this easy recipe for lunch or dinner, and watch it become a family favourite.

While the first side is cooking, try frying up some yakisoba noodles and flipping the pancake onto these when cooking the other side for Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki.

During the final stage, try breaking an egg on the top of the pancake, then cover with a wok lid to quickly steam-cook. Serve when the yolk is slightly runny.

Recipe for Okonomiyaki sauce: 20 g honey, 30 g Japanese soy sauce, 60 g tomato ketchup, 40 g Worcestershire sauce – mix together and drizzle on top of the pancake.

Kewpie mayonnaise can be substituted for any other mayonnaise too.
