Korean Pancake Version 2 (kim-chi bu chim gae/kim-chi jeon)

Here's the second version of the Korean pancake, the spicy one. If you don't recall my first version, the non-spicy one, you can click here. It was in my past post... hehe~

If you need some guidance with the ingredients, you can check my Korean Cooking 101. ;)

mixing powder
seafood mix
green onion
kim-chi & juice
olive oil or any oil
soy sauce
garlic salt
sesame seeds
red pepper powder

Step 1:
In a bowl, mix the mixing powder and water until you get a liquid-y consistency.
I used this mixing powder I bought from the Korean market.

If you don't have a mixing powder, you can use flour. In a bowl add flour, pinch of salt, 1 egg, and water until you get a liquid-y consistency.

Step 2:
Now you add the ingredients you want in the pancake. I added seafood mix, onion, and green onions.

It's the same process as the first version except...
Now you need to cut kim-chi into small pieces. Throw the chopped kim-chi and juice into the pancake. The key to making this pancake is using the old kim-chi and juice. If you use the new kim-chi, it won't taste that good... hehe~ :X

Step 3:
In a frying pan, put olive oil or any oil you prefer. Now scoop some pancake mixture you just made and fry both sides. The key in making the pancake as thin as possible! ;)
Now you can eat with soy sauce mixture. In the soy sauce I added chopped green onions, garlic salt, sesame seeds, and red pepper powder. In my case, we didn't even need the soy sauce mixture because I added way too much kim-chi and juice... lol~ It was spicy without the soy sauce mixture! :X

This is my nail of the week (NOTW #6). It's very simple and boring... hehe~
I just want to enjoy the black nail polish color until Spring comes around... hehe~ I used OPI Baby It's "Coal" Outside! It's such a beautiful black nail polish with silver glitters. Gorgeous! :)

apparently if you use cold water, it makes it crunchier~
omg did you ever look at the back and see the calorie intake of the powder?
If I weren't so crazy about them, I probably would have cried. lol
I'm hoping I'm remember the right thing...I have horrible memory :X

are you all better now?

Kimchi pancake looks equally as yummy as before!! love the black nails!

Ahleessa said...

Kathryn! :) I know we haven't talked in a long while... hehe~ I haven't heard anything about the Ellen show *sigh*. I don't know what's up with that... hehe~

The kim-chi needs to be old as in it doesn't taste fresh anymore... hehe~ I hope that answer your question. Call me if you need more explanation! :P

gio said...

Audrie said...

Yum your food always looks so delicious!! the korean pancakes look so simple to make I gotta try it sometime, thanks for another recipe :) My nails of the week look very similar to yours! It's also black with silver shimmers.

ndoodles said...

I admire you for always trying to finish your products! I need to do that too!

Jen said...

Hey Ahleessa! I tried this recipe today (I love Korean pancake!) but I couldn't get it to be crispy at all. Any advice?

The first few times it might not have been thin enough, but I think the last one was as thin as it should be and still not crispy. I put in a lot of kim chee and onion so maybe too many water ingredients? Maybe more or less oil? Or heat? I tried changing the heat but it didn't seem to make much difference.

Sorry to bother you, I really want to learn to make this!

Jen said...

Thanks so much for your advice on the kim chee pancake! It was really helpful, I'm definitely going to try it again soon. I'll let you know how it goes!

Thanks for the recipe. But the fact that you put a picture of your nails is so damn stupid you tramp. Your ugly nails are a disgrace to all mankind. Please stop posting pictures of your nails with food. Nobody gives a damn about them. AND again.. thanks for the recipe :)

Ahleessa said...

Anonymous: Glad you like the recipe, but this is a beauty blog. I was showing my nail of the week.

That's really nice of you to call me a tramp. If calling someone that makes you feel better, that's nice to know... lol~ :)

Hi Ahleessa, you are making me really hungry! Haha

I love your blog!!! Have you been able to try Sulwhasoo or Whoo products? From reading your posts, you live in L.A correct? There are a lot of Amore shops (sell Laneige, IOPE, and Sulwhasoo) and some LG counters (sell Coreana, Charmzone, Whoo, OHUI, SooRyeHan).

I hope you get a chance - you will not be disappointed!!!

P.s, to that rude comment... some people are very immature.

Keep up the great work Ahleessa <3!!!
