Mix the flour and water (or bonito soup stock).

Heat a medium-size frying pan on medium heat. Add the oil. Add half of the mixture (Step 3). Arrange in a circle about 1 cm. high. Bake on medium heat about 5 minutes. Don't push with a spatula because that will make the negiyaki hard.

Turn with a spatula and bake the other side on medium heat about 3 minutes.

step 6:

Coat the pancake with 1/2 to 1 tablespoon soy sauce or sauce of Japanese–Style Pancakes. Sprinkle green laver on top. Remove from the pan.
