Takoyaki Balls or known as also Samurai Balls is one of my favorite food when I was a kid. I tasted this cuisine when I was a child in a store called Samurai in Harrison Plaza. I was so intrigued on how I could make one for my kids since they loved it. Since Japanese cuisine is one of my favorite food I searched the net and the stores near me where I could purchase the pan. Lucky for me there are Japanese stores near our area in Pasay. So needless to say I bought my ingredients and the needed apparatus. Good luck and I hope I am able to contribute my recipe.

Tips
Purchase the Takoyaki cooker/pan from a Japanese store. I purchased mine from A Japanese store in Cartimar (price is P1,400.00 Pesos)

Brush each mold with oil so the batter won't stick. You can try any other ingredients you want to mix inside the ball, endless possibility and according to your taste.

If you want to check out how to really cook the takoyaki, you could check in you tube or go to the Japanese store in Cartimar - every weekends there's a store that sells the takoyaki.
