Gather Your Ingredients and Begin Prepping.
Before you begin cooking, make sure to gather all of your ingredients. You'll need two cups of all-purpose flour, one cup of kimchi and any extra vegetables you'd like to include, one teaspoon each of sugar and salt, half a teaspoon of pepper, two large eggs, one cup of water or stock, canola oil for frying, and any extra garnishes that you'd like. Now it's time to start prepping - cut the kimchi into small pieces and prepare your other ingredients as needed. When everything is ready, it's time to start making the pancakes!
Mix the Batter and Start Frying.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk in the eggs and then very gradually add water or stock until a thick batter is formed. Fold in the kimchi, vegetables or extra garnishes. Heat up enough of the canola oil to fill up 1/4 inch of a large cast iron skillet - when it hits 375 degrees Fahrenheit you're ready to start cooking! Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and fry each pancake on both sides until golden brown and cooked through; this should take just 1-2 minutes per side. Serve them hot with any toppings you'd like!
Give the Pancakes a Little Crisp with Egg Wash and Sesame Seeds.
Before putting the batter in the pan, finish off your pancakes with a delicious egg wash. Start by whisking two eggs and brush the mix onto each side of the pancakes. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and you’ll be sure to get that extra bit of crisp and crunch! Enjoy your kimchi pancakes hot or cold with any toppings you'd like, such as sour cream, spring onions, or even mayo.
Slice Up That Kimchi!
Once you’ve gathered all of your ingredients together, it’s time to start your kimchi pancake journey. Don’t forget to properly prepare the kimchi – begin by slicing the kimchi finely with a sharp knife over the bowl. Then add your other ingredients, such as the flour, eggs, and seasoning into the same bowl. Mix everything together and be sure not to overmix to form a smooth batter!
Serve and Enjoy Your Home-Made Kimchi Pancakes!
Lastly, don’t forget to fry your pancakes in a large skillet and flip them over after three minutes or until golden brown. When finished, serve the delectable pancakes with some sesame seeds and sliced green onions. You can also dip them into some soy sauce for added flavor. Enjoy!
