I had been itching to get a Takoyaki maker for a while, and the funny thing was, I placed an order for one online, only to find that it’s a “mini takoyaki” maker when it arrived!
What is Takoyaki? Ask Wikipedia XD Before I moved to Canada, Singapore sells Takoyaki at some of the Malls too. So yummy ^^;
With the smaller Takoyaki Maker, I liked that it is rectangular shaped — easier to store. But it was hard to have anything in the middle with the balls so small ^^; Husband said it looks like Dollfie sized takoyaki :P
In the end we bought an actual version which made the regular sized takoyaki at a local Japanese goods store downtown – Konbiniya. We bought a packet of the flour mixture because it was on sale at the time too. Haven’t tried it yet ^^;
Had to test it out the day we got it! So far, I have made a couple bunch of sweet ones using pancake style batter and red bean paste as the filling. The one below is savory batter, and the inside is random bits of cooked meat/cheese. (drool)
So yummy! But after cooking it, I smell like food afterwards ^^;
