    6. Spread some vegetable oil in both the holes and connecting flat part of the Takoyaki pan
    7. Pour the batter to fill the holes of the pan

    9. Once the bottom of the batter becomes baked and hardened (after 2-3 minutes), turn each piece 90 degrees with a skewer. Then flip all of them and keep turning each piece to make an even brown colour and rounded shape for 3-4 minutes until cooked.
    10. Place the cooked snack balls on a plate and finish off with your prefered toppings and / or sauce.
