Korean Kimchi….a great food to go with almost any Asian food. I’m always thankful to my Korean friends for introducing me to their food and teaching me different ways to eat kimchi. It’s such a healthy, vegetarian dish.

We have been enjoying kimchi every meal since I made it a few days ago. There are quite a few dishes that I would want to make using kimchi and one of them is Kimchi Pancake. I made some yesterday. I wanted something light before I went for badminton and kimchi pancake was just the right one. It is easy to make once you have the kimchi. My simple recipe here to share:

Ingredients A (batter)
2C Korean pancake powder
1C kimchi (slice it short)
1/2C kimchi water
1 & 1/2C water

Put everything in a mixing bowl and mix well. The Korean pancake flour is very special The texture of the pancake is a little chewy which makes the pancake very delicious. However, if you are not able to get this flour, you can use your normal pancake batter but it will taste a little different. It will still be very good though. The kimchi water is already salty so I did not add anymore salt. You can season according to your taste.

Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Add a small scoop of the batter into it. Top with some spring onion. When the bottom is brown, turn over. Fry until it is cooked and dish up to a plate. Serve hot with dipping sauce if you like or eat it with more kimchi. We ate it with more kimchi. It was just fabulous.

I love Korean food. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a real authentic Korean food. I also love kimchi mixed with rice. I love their noodles and their different condiments. They also have this sliced meats where you cook in front of a grill and wrap it in lettuce with some rice and sauce. I also like glutinous rice balls with red bean filling inside. And so much more.

And I haven’t squeeze the Kimchi into my schedule yet and some other fermented vegetables. But I want to make them.

Divina, thanks for comments. Once you make the kimchi, then the rest comes easy. There are quite a number of food that you can make with kimchi. Homemade is always best. I also love the glutinous rice balls with red bean paste filling.The grilled meat must be the bulgogi which is really awesome.

Alexandra, I think you should come here & I’ll make for you! If not, you have to try making there. It’s easy to make, trust me.
