Kimchi Pancake:

Dipping Sauce:


  1. Chop the kimchi into bite sized pieces. Slice the scallion into 1 inch pieces. 
  2. Into a large bowl, combine the flour, potato starch and salt and stir. Then add in the kimchi, kimchi juice, scallion and water. Stir the mixture until a thick batter forms and everything is well combined. 
  3. Heat a large pan over medium high heat. Brush the pan with 1 tsp of oil (omit for oil-free). Pour all the batter onto the pan. Spread the batter to create an even layer. Fry until browned and crispy and the edges look slightly cooked. Flip the pancake and cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until browned and crispy. 
  4. While waiting, prepare the dipping sauce by combining all the ingredients together. 
  5. Once the pancakes are finished, slice into 6-8 pieces and serve with the dipping sauce. Enjoy!
