If you're looking to try something a little different this Shrove Tuesday then, these savoury kimchi pancakes are a winner. Crispy, piquant and moreish; this dish punches way about its weight in terms of flavour - all you'll need is a few humble ingredients and 20 minutes tops!
Makes 4 Large pancakes
Dipping Sauce - Optional
Sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl
Add the salt to the flour and mix thoroughly
Add the water to the bowl and mix until all lumps have been incorporated and a nice smooth batter is formed
Whisk the beaten egg into the batter
Finely dice the Kimchi and mix thoroughly through the batter
Heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan - think at least 2 TBS - you want the outsides to be nice and crispy
Once the oil is hot, spoon in 1 C worth of batter mixture
Leave the pancakes until they are nearly cooked through - the edges will begin to change colour and crisp up but unlike traditional pancakes, bubbles wont form on the surface
Flip the pancake and continue to heat until cooked through and a nice golden brown
Serve with diced spring onion and sesame seeds to garnish!
Optional - Make the Dipping Sauce
Finely dice the chilli and add to an empty jar
Add all other ingredients to the jar and shake up
Pour into a bowl and serve!
