Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pancake made of batter mixed with shredded cabbage and a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki meaning "grilled" or "cooked". So from its very concept it is easily adaptable to suit your own taste preferences.
