  1. Mix up batter by putting the flour, baking powder, stock, soy sauce and miso in a large mixing bowl. Add water until a pancake-like batter consistency has been reached.
  2. Add the vegetable fillings (cabbage, brown onion, garlic and carrot, but you could use any vegetables) and mix through the batter.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan and spoon batter into the pan. Cook on both sides until slightly golden (about 2 minutes both sides).
  4. Serve with tonkatsu sauce or tomato sauce and mayo with chopped spring onions sprinkled on top and cucumber on the side.
  5. This recipe makes enough for 4 savory pancakes. Double the recipe and use 1/2 small cabbage to feed 4 people dinner.
