Once you learn how to make kimchi pancake on your own, there’s no way you’d pay for it at a Korean restaurant ever again. Honestly. It’s so easy! It involves only a few ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen, and you can jazz it up however you’d like.
The basics to a kimchi pancake are: Kimichi (the napa cabbage kimchi sort), all-purpose flour, kimchi brine, scallions, sugar and oil. You can get creative with bits of squid if you want to make a seafood pancake, or add some white onion for that delightful crunch. But the basics are your foundation, and that’s what we’ll be making today.
Here are the brands of kimchi and gojuchang used for this recipe.
