I have been watching K-dramas since the Movement Control Order started. I am now into my 5th drama. Every drama features yummy Korean foods that our favorite stars eat and that made me crave for some Korean street food. Since missy loves the Korean pancake (Pa Jeon), I decided to make some for her. I found the recipe from an online website (sorry I couldn’t link as I have forgotten where I saw it).
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Some water
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 large peeled garlic clove
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
Instructions from the website
- Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Allow the mixture to come to a boil, then give it a good stir and turn the heat down to medium-low. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, until slightly reduced and thickened.
- Slice the scallion into 1-inch pieces.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg and grated garlic. Add some water. Stir gently with a spatula until just combine. Add in scallions.
- Heat two tablespoons of the vegetable oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot and shimmering, pour in half of the batter and use the spatula to spread the batter out toward the edges of the pan.
- Fry for 4 to 5 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown and the vegetables are lightly charred. Flip and cook another 4 to 5 minutes on the other side.
- Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and repeat the process with the second half of the batter and veggies. Slice the cooked pancakes into pieces and serve.
