Servings 3 Servings


  • 1 cup chopped kim chee, approximately 3/4 inch
  • 5 tablespoons kim chee juice
  • 2 green onions, sliced 1 inch
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 0.5 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. In a bowl, combine the ingredients except the oil and mix it with a spoon. (Just incorporate the ingredients, overworking will make it tough)
  2. Heat a 10 inch non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  3. Place 1/3 of the kim chee mixture in the pan and spread it thinly and evenly in the pan.
  4. Cook it for about 1-2 minutes until the bottom gets golden brown and crispy.
  5. Using a wooden or rubber heat-proof spatula, turn over and cook until golden brown.
  6. Flip once more and cook again to further crisp for 1 minute. Repeat on the other side.
  7. Repeat with the last 2/3 of the mix.


The pancake can be served as a side dish alone or with a sauce made up of shoyu, sesame oil, vinegar, minced scallion, and sesame seeds.
