10 TIPS TO MASTER KOREAN PANCAKES
1 / It’s usually 1 : 1 (pancake mix : water) ratio. 1 cup will make about 2-3 pancakes.
2 / Finely chop ingredients or in thin shreds so you can spread thin and flat.
3 / Add 1 big ice cube in the batter mix for extra crispy pancakes.
4 / You only flip twice but press down with spatula to make sure its cook thoroughly.
5 / Add more oil around the edges and in the middle by lifting the pancake, again for extra crispy pancake.
6 / Season your mix lightly with salt even if you make sauce to dip
7 / Easy dipping sauce to make: soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds (+green chili for extra kick).
8 / Flavorful combo: chives + green onion + perilla OR zucchini + onion + dried shrimp OR kimchi + kimchi juice + sugar + gochujang + green onion.
9 / Make the pancake ahead of time, refrigerate then reheat on pan (without oil) on low-med heat. This also makes it crispy and flavorful.
10 / Make it on a rainy day, eat it with Korean rice wine (Makgeolli) and share it with your friends & family.
