    In this episode, we'll be showing how to make two electric griddle dishes perfect for house parties. The first of these is okonomiyaki, a popular standard throughout Japan. We'll be mixing vegetables and mentaiko seasoned cod roe into the batter to make the Yukimasa family's okonomiyaki recipe, and we'll show you how to cook it up nice and fluffy. Our second dish is easy fried udon noodles with curry sauce — add curry powder to the same sauce recipe Chef Rika uses for her okonomiyaki, to make fragrant and flavorful fried udon noodles!
