I’m sure you’ve all tried some form of savory crepe, but have you tried savory pancakes?
Here are two simple recipes to test out in your kitchen. Scallion Pancakes (my personal favorite) and Kimchi Pancakes .
****If you are looking for something different another fun idea to try potato pancakes.*****
Scallion pancakes or Kimchi Pancakes
Flour (2 cups)
for Scallion pancakes chop up atleast 5 scallions
OR if you want kimchi pancakes cut up 2/3 cups worth of Kimchi
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to taste
Sesame oil (1 tbsp)
Water (enough to make the batter runny / pancake like)
***Canola oil for the pan***
(I found out from reading many scallion pancake recipes that you’re NOT supposed to use an egg in the batter like regular pancakes …. I did and it came out delicious so this is a judgement call for you
First: Mix together the flour, sesame oil, spices, main ingredient (scallion or kimchi), *egg optional*, and then enough water to make the batter to a pancake consistency.
Second: Heat up a pan with canola oil
Third: Drop batter in fist sized circles into the oil and cook on both sides until crispy
Fourth: Place finished pancakes on paper towels and dab off extra oil
Fifth: Sprinkle on shaved salt and either serve with a 1 part vinegar 3 parts soy sauce mixture or spicy may0
(I mixed mayo with Thai chili garlic sauce)
