Pajeon~Korean Green Onion Pancake

I love this version of Pajeon or Korean Green/Scallion Pancake. It's a quick and easy snack to whip up. The secret ingredient other than scallion is the soybean paste. If you like, you may also consider adding sliced mushrooms, peppers, bean sprouts, or even some diced seafood into the pancake batter.

Recipe adapted from Maangchi.com

Pajeon~Green Onion Pancake


10 Stalks Scallions/Green Onions, cut into 5” length
Vegetable Oil for frying

½ Cup All-Purpose Flour

About 1/2 Cup Water + 1 Tbsp, if needed

1 tsp Korean Soybean Paste
½ tsp Sugar

Vinegar Soy Sauce (Cho Ganjang)

2 Tbsp Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp Rice or Korean Apple Vinegar
1 tsp Honey
¼ White Onion, diced
1 Green Chili, sliced
1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds


In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the vinegar soy sauce and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, water, soybean paste and sugar. Mix well until the batter is smooth.

Heat a non-stick pan and add about 3 Tbsp of vegetable oil. Put the green onions on the pan parallel to each other, in a rectangle shape. Then pour the batter evenly over the green onion.

Cook on one side until golden brown. Flip and cook the other side. Remove the pancake and transfer it to a serving plate. Serve warm with the vinegar soy sauce.
