KIMCHI PANCAKES/GIMCHI BUCHINGAE (4-6 servings as appetizers)
What you will need:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup rice flour
  • 1½ cups cold water, plus more as needed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup baechu kimchi (napa cabbage kimchi), coarsely chopped
  • 2 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 oz uncooked pork, diced into small pieces
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, rice flour, water, and egg and mix lightly. The mixture should be the consistency of pancake batter but doesn't have to be smooth. Add a little more water if necessary, but remember that the kimchi will add liquid as well. Stir in the kimchi, green onions, pork, and salt
  2. In a large skillet, heat about 1 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Ladle batter into the skillet and spread it out to an 8-inch circle. Cook until edges turn brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip it over, add a little bit more oil around the pancake, and cook for another 3-minutes or so until cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding oil as needed. Serve the pancakes hot out of the skillet. Cut into wedges or serve whole
