This time, I used tonkatsu sauce because it’s thick and similar to takoyaki sauce. On the other hand, Worcestershire sauce is very thin type. So, it’s not really suitable for making homemade takoyaki sauce.

If there is only Worcestershire sauce, you should probably add some corn starch or potato starch to make the sauce thicker.

Chuno sauce (thickness is medium) is also available if you have one.
