Homemade Korean PancakesJune 21, 2008 | 2,073 views
Aunt buy a pre-mixed flour for the batter, easily obtainable from the supermarket. The ingredients may vary, according to personal preference.
Close up shot of the pan-fried pancake with prawns, kuchai (chives), scallions and onions.
Aunt generously peppered her version with middle-sized prawns, from Kuala Selangor no less. The fresh prawns are sweet in nature, and provided a nice bite with its springy texture. If I remembered correctly, she mentioned about the addition of cheese in the pancake too, but of course, I could be wrong. Hehe ….
The pancake should not be eaten alone. Pair it with the Korean Bibimbap Chilli Sauce named Bibimbap Gochujang. Made from seasoned red pepper paste, with various vegetables thrown in for good measure, the sauce added a sweet,sourish, and mildly spicy taste to the pancakes. Korean meals are never complete without this bottle of goodness. Pick it up from a store near you. (Hehe … Sounds like an ad, ya?)
Of course, you can choose to have it plain, or with other sauces, such as the Okono-miyaki (Japanese pizza) sauce and mayo combination (see pic above). But then, it defeats the purpose of an authentic Korean pizza, no?
