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.

Pajeon~Green Onion Pancake

Ingredients


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



Batter
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



Method


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.

  1. I love what you bring to us. Do you think I could use a little miso paste in place of Korean soybean paste? I won't see you answer unless you write to scrout1944@msn.com. Thanks

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
