• Dumplings are humble and homey. They make people smile. I have loved them since childhood, and this site focuses on cooking and finding the tastiest morsels. It's also the companion to my cookbook, Asian Dumplings.

I saw that pan and I thought "banh khot". Those takoyakis are tasty, esp with the octopus fillings.


As can be seen in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7G6KT-JGIwA&feature=related

If you poor the batter so it overflows the cups in the pan, and then as the batter sets use your skewer to cut the batter around each cup and fold it over the top as you flip the takoyaki, this will help prevent ending up with pacmen...

Thanks for inspiring me to make takoyaki this weekend. It has been ages...


oh goodness, little bits of heaven are staring me in the face

Binh -- banh khot is on my list!

Jesse -- love that tip on preventing Pacman takoyaki. The extra bit of batter should definitely do the trick. There's a little clean up between batches but it should lift off the pan easily.

Oyster Culture -- you are too much. Takoyaki are oddly lovable.


I have to get one of those pans! The uses could be endless, and these dumplings sound delicious.

My husband's youngest niece (who is Japanese-American)is wild for these. I remember her driving with her aunt all the way from Sacramento to the South Bay just to score some. Actually, now that you've shown me I can make them in my ebelskiver pan, I can whip some up for her the next time she visits.


Delicious I going to get those pans

Carolyn, What's with young people and takoyaki? You'll be the most favorite auntie to that lucky young woman!


The recipe testers did an amazing job. And yes, they volunteered and I didn't have to do much recruiting either

I would suggest Dan is wrong. There's still a lot of low hanging fruit
out there -- and new fruit to pluck every day.

O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet south,
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour

I was wondering is there an alternative topping for these besides things like mayo and ketchup, because I don't really care much for that
