Pics from my little kitchen ❤


Makes around 8 meatballs
Original Recipe from COOKPAD


Ground chicken –  100g (I actually used ground turkey this time)

Cake flour –  1 tablespoon
Miso – 1 teaspoon
Soy sauce – 1 teaspoon

Sake – 1 tablespoon

Green onions (chopped up) 2 tablespoons


  1. Mix the miso, soy sauce, and sake in advance.
  2. Mix the chicken/turkey into the sauce from step 1 and add the potato starch and green onion. Mix from the bottom to incorporate air.
  3. Spread oil in a pan and fry the meat mixture shaped into patties over medium to low heat. Cook until they are cooked through and both sides are golden.
  4. If you want the insides to be fluffy, cover with a lid, if you prefer a springier texture, don’t cover.
  5. Top with japanese mayonaisse and okonomi!

Huge tip!  If you are frying a new batch right after your first one, make sure you clean it completely.  The sauce will burn!  I really loved the taste of these meatballs.  I think chicken meat will be better than turkey.  Because turkey doesn’t have as much fat – it was not as moist as chicken would be.  BUT – I still think the Turkey meatballs tasted great!  Next time, I will make these with ground chicken!
