Takoyaki means squid balls which are cooked in Takoyaki mould. I found this mould many years ago during my business trip in Singapore. I love Takoyaki and it was sold in Miri mall but it has closed down. Luckily I can make this myself so I will not crave to death.
Since most of the ingredients are not available in Miri, I have to make do with what I can find in the city but the taste is still very good. This is how I made my Takoyaki:

1½ cup Flour
2 Eggs
1½ cup Dashi (vegetable/shrimp stock but I made this myself using fresh squid)
½ tsp Salt
200g Tako (Squids)
1 Ikan Bilis cubes
2 inches Carrot - cut matchstick shape & chop to small bits
1 sheet Seaweed - cut to small pieces
Fish flakes for garnishing

1. Chop & boil squids with 1½+ cup water, ikan bilis cube & salt.
Drain squid & measure the liquid for making batter.

2. Mix flour, eggs, squid stock, carrot & salt.

3. Heat up Takoyaki mould on stove.
Oil the mould & pour 1/2 full with batter.
Place squids & seaweed and topped with batter until full.
Turn it with a stick and keep turning so it forms a ball until cooked.

4. Garnish Takoyaki with fish flakes and serve with mayonaise and chilli sauce or your choice of sauce/ketchup.


  1. Looks delicious, but I believe Tako actually means "octopus" and "yaki" means "grilled". Takoyaki would be octopus balls I guess :)

  2. Yes, you are almost right. Read what I write you will find the answer in the posting.

  3. kat mane nak beli acuan tu...tak pernah nampak pun..biasa beli je tokoyaki ni rupanya buat sendiri lagi puas hati...tapi dlm byk resepi mereka guna tokoyaki premix kat mane nak dpt kat sarawak ek???
