  • 1 cup Takoyaki Flour
  • 500 ml Water
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup Boiled octopus cut into cubes
  • cup  Panko breadcrumbs or Tenkasu
  • 1 tsp patis (fish sauce)
  • Green onions  (optional)
  • Nori flakes (optional)
  • Mayonnaise (as required)
  • Takoyaki sauce (as required)


  • Preheat and grease a Takoyaki pan.
  • Combine Takoyaki flour with the egg and water to create a batter. Once you reach a homogenous consistency, transfer the batter into a squeeze bottle, piping bag, etc as per convenience.
  • Mix the filling ingredients together, the octopus with fish sauce and if you have it, the green onions cut into small pieces and the nori flakes as well.
  • Pour batter into the mold up to the brim. Add in the filling immediately (the octopus).
  • While the batter is slightly cooked, but moldable mold it into the shape of a ball until the ball is brown. With a designated takoyaki maker this is easily done by turning the balls in the round holes.
  • Transfer the balls once they're brown all around into a dish. You can top with your favorite toppings, serve it with your favorite condiments and you're done!
