Classic Kimchi Pancakes with a curried twist. My mother's recipe, my father's favorite Korean snack. Light and crispy with a beautiful marriage of kimchi and curry, it's a match made in Heaven.


Unbleached flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Sweet rice flour 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Pinch
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Fermented kimchi 1 Cup (16 tbs) , chopped, drained
Curry powder:
Ginger 1/2 Teaspoon
Cumin 1/2 Tablespoon
Coriander 1/2 Tablespoon
Turmeric 1/2 Teaspoon



1. In a bowl, whisk the flour, sweet rice flour, salt and all the curry powder.

2. Stir in the water then add in the kimchi. Don't over mix or this will produce a dense pancake.

3. In a well oiled pan, slicked with a high heat oil {like coconut, canola, grapeseed, veggie, etc}, pour in c of batter {to make approximately 6 pancakes}.

4. Only flip when each side is crisp and golden brown.
