  • Heat a skillet over medium heat; add about 1 teaspoon vegetable oil. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter into the hot skillet, creating a pancake that is 1/4-inch thick; flatten and smooth the edges using a spatula. Cook pancake for 3 minutes; flip, pressing lightly, and cook for 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining vegetable oil and batter.

  • Whisk green onion, soy sauce, sesame seeds, red pepper powder, and sesame oil together in a bowl; serve alongside pancake.

Made as written and these were excellent! The only thing missing is a little bit of Sriracha. I was worried about how loose the batter was but they turned out beautiful. If you like Kimchi you should really give this a try! Read More

I will make this again. My husband lived in Korea for a year and misses the food. He told me about 'Kimchi Pancakes' and I was pretty sure that they would be gross. Quite the opposite these were delicious. The hubby loved them. The only change I made was that I didn't want yellow onion and instead used a bunch of chopped green onion (it's just a flavour preference on my part). Thanks! Read More

I’m half Korean and it’s been a good while since my oma has made these. I made a few tweaks to your recipe instead of 2 cups of water, I used 1 1/4 cups of water & the rest with kimchi “juice”. And added fresh sliced jalapeños to the mixture. Turned out pretty good. Thank for sharing your recipe. Read More
