Korean Vegetable Pancakes

PREP TIME
10 minutes
COOK TIME
15 minutes
SERVES
4
Ingredients

½ cup plain (all-purpose) flour

½ cup potato starch or cornflour (cornstarch)

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

1 egg

¼ cup finely chopped kimchi

1 tbsp juice from the kimchi

2 cups finely julienned mixed vegetables (e.g. carrots, zucchini, capsicum)

5 spring onions (scallions), thinned out lengthways and cut into roughly 4cm batons

vegetable oil, for shallow frying

¾ cup (180ml/6 fl oz) of cold water

 

Dipping sauce:

¼ cup soy sauce

1 tbsp white vinegar

1 tsp sesame oil

½ tsp sugar

 

Steps
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 150C/300F.

  • Step 2

    For the dipping sauce, combine the ingredients in a bowl and set aside until ready to serve.

  • Step 3

    For the pancakes, combine the flour, potato starch, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Add the egg and ¾ cup (180ml/6 fl oz) of cold water. Whisk until well combined. Then fold through the kimchi, kimchi juice, vegetables and two-thirds of the spring onion.

  • Step 4

    Heat enough oil to just cover the base of a shallow frying pan over medium-high heat. Scoop ¼ cupfuls of the batter mixture into the pan. Spread out a little with the back of a spoon. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden and the batter is cooked through. You’ll need to do this in batches, so transfer cooked pancakes to a baking tray, season with a little more salt and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest.

  • Step 5

    Sprinkle with remaining spring onion. Serve with dipping sauce.

Yummy

I just made these, super yummy! I made a tweak because I am terrible at following recipes to a tea and used cold Soda water because I think it makes it even lighter. I served with Korean mayo and extra kimchi on the side

Will certainly make again and really like the idea of experimenting with all sorts of veges

I used beans, carrot, capsicum and courgette

Delicious

This recipe is delicious and versatile. I usually follow a recipe to a T but second time around, I made a tweak, I used cabbage and yellow onions instead of scallions because that’s I I had on hand. Turned out soooo good! Marion, you made my taste buds and belly happy!

Delicious!

These were sooo good! Learning curve in a new kitchen and not having the oil as hot as I thought, but once I got going, came out as expected! Didn’t have sugar, but made the dipping sauce without and it came out delicious. Enough for this part time vegetarian and her meat eating hubby!
