Maangchi's Kimchi Pancakes - Kimchijeon



Another delicious recipe from Maangchi - Kimchi Pancakes or Kimchijeon in Korean ;). I had always wanted to try this recipe because I love Korean pancakes and I love kimchi, so nothing could go wrong, especially because Maangchi's videos are always so clear and easy-to-follow :).




This time I used my homemade kimchi (recipe can be found here) - my first time making kimchi, and I was amazed how easy it was actually making kimchi yourself at home!! I always hesitated making kimchi at home because I thought it would be too hard to make, but I was completely wrong. The process itself was very easy with 100% success rate if you follow the step-by-step instructions from Maangchi, you just have to be patient because there's a quite long waiting time - 4 hours in total to get your kimchi ready (but basically, you don't really have to do anything during these 4 hours, you just leave your kimchi alone and do your own things while waiting).

Now, let's watch the video below (from Maangchi) to see how to make kimchi pancakes :)! I made both types, Kimchijeon with chopped kimchi and Kimchijeon with whole kimchi leaves.

Here is my adapted recipe for Kimchijeon with chopped kimchi. I added some seafood too and oyster sauce instead of salt (I love my oyster sauce...!!)

  12. Wow! this looks so healthy and I'm going to put that into my baking list. I think it is so much better to make homemade ones rather than premix pancake flour. It's so easy. Thanks for sharing dear!

  17. @ Fresh Local and Best - I love ordering Korean pancakes too when I visit Korean restaurants:).

    @ Carolyn - I am addicted to these pancakes as well ;).

    @ Allie - thank you, I am glad I've given you more ideas!

    @ NQN - Thank you, you're sweet!

    @ Jen - I love spicy food but cannot eat too much of it either ;)

    @Angie, Eliana, Roshan - Thank you :).

    @ Weng - It's not worth it using a pancake mix for this one, because you can so easily make it at home yourself, taste better too!

    @ Sarah, Mary, Monet - Thanks for the kind comments!

    @ Maren - Yea, Asian foods can be quite complicated sometimes, but this recipe here is quite easy to make!

  20. I'm always surprised at how easily so many things can be made at home =] I can't really stand spicy food so I don't really like kimchi....
    but your pancake looks delicious!! Especially with your additions- I love replacing salt with oyster sauce =D
