You need the half-sphere shapes to really make that round ball shape.
Now typically filled with octopus meat, takoyaki's predecessor was filled with beef!
You need to use a long skewer or a pointy chopstick to avoid your hand getting too hot.

    a takoyaki pan (see Cook's Note), 1 or 2 skewers or chopsticks and a pastry brush. Whisk together the Dashi and eggs in a large bowl. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk just until.

    Tip 3: Flip 90 degrees and stuff in the extra batter. Break the extra batter around the hole with skewers. Once the bottom of the takoyaki balls is crispy, rotate 90 degrees to let the uncooked batter pour out into the hole. Stuff and push in the extra surrounding dough inside the balls.

    Put a piece of octopus in each mould, then tenkasu, shallots/scallion and benishōga on top of octopus. Leave some tenkasu, shallots/scallion and benishōga for the second batch (1/3 in my case as my pan makes 16 balls at once). Pour the batter over the mould and fill the entire surface of the pan/griller.

    Takoyaki literally translated means octopus fried, but they aren’t just fried octopus – they’re tiny, piping hot balls of batter filled with green onions, ginger, crispy tempura bits and octopus. It’s crisp, it’s gooey, it’s delicious. The best Japanese street food. Takoyaki is one of Osaka’s quintessential street foods.

    August 27, 2020. Savory, salty, and just generally delicious, takoyaki is an incredibly popular Japanese street food. Tako means octopus and yaki indicates the cooking method, in this case, pan-frying. Sometimes called “octopus balls” in English, takoyaki is made of a batter infused with dashi (dried kelp and fish flakes) which is filled.
