“Super Quick” Korean Pancakes


Today was one of those days that I was to cook lunch for just my son and I (then get him back to school) all within an hour.  Its rare that I don’t plan every meal at least the day before but this is a great one for a last minute healthy meal.

I think between preparing and cooking, I was done in less than 15 or 20 MINUTES ! Not bad, I say 😉

I used brown rice flour this time but I have access to great quality organic “fresh stone ground” flour so have used that too.

This is the base recipe but so many things could be added.  Today it was, leftover cooked rice, braised fennel and spring onions served with a bit of home made Kimchi and a green salad on the side.  Would be nice with red cabbage coleslaw too.

Quick Korean Pancakes

  • Servings: 2 as a light meal or 4 as a starter
  • Print


  • Vegetable oil for the pan
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour (I used brown rice, but a mix of all purpose and rice works well)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup very finely chopped STUFF (green beans, spring onion, grated carrots ar nice) and/or chopped leftover meat or seafood.
  • Fresh coriander to finish if you have it

Dipping Sauce

  • 3 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Soya Sauce (or Tamari)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Pinch of chili flakes (optional)

Fill a pitcher with some ice and at least 1/2 cup water and set aside.  Place a small frying pan over medium heat with a touch of oil.  In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until frothy.  Add flour and salt and combine.  Add Veg/Meat and 1/2 cup ice-water, mix well.  Using the same 1/2 cup measuring cup or a ladle, pour the batter into the hot pan and cook for about 2 minutes per side or until crispy.  Serve hot or at room temperature with the dipping sauce.

Some nice things to add to these pancakes:

Any leftover meat, shredded or chopped

Leftover vegetables

Spring onions

Fresh herbs

Chopped cooked (or raw for that matter) fish or seafood

Green beans, carrots, courgettes, peas etc…..

Kimchi (added to the batter)

THE POSSIBILITES are endless 😉

Careful, these are VERY moorish 🙂

Bon Appetît !
