Kimchi and potato pancake

(Hosting Weekend Herb Blogging!)

Kimchi Potato Pancake

It is a busy weekend here on A food lover’s journey. Yesterday, I posted about Vietnamese preserved mustard cabbage for Delicious Vietnam. And now, let’s turn to another famous Asian pickles, kimchi.

 I made kimchi once in a while, but most of the time I just buy a small container from a Korean grocery in the CBD. Uncooked, I am the only one who ever touches the stuff. But when the kimchi is used as ingredient for various dishes, it is a different story! We all love the chicken kimchi pizza. And recently, we have also enjoyed kimchi and potato pancakes!

kimchi. hot. spicy and so tasty.

 These pancakes are a breeze to make, and so versatile, too. Add seafood, drained canned tuna, chopped cooked meats if you are in the mood for something more substantial. I am pretty happy with the vegetarian version though. They have that spicy tanginess that goes so well with the fried pancake texture.

I have the honour of hosting Weekend Herb Blogging #309, which turned 6 last week. WHB is now coordinated by Haalo from Cook (almost) anything at least once.

Kimchi pancakes #2

 Kimchi and potato pancakes 

Ingredients
3 large potatoes
100g sour cabbage kimchi
80g plain flour
100ml water
 ½ tsp salt
 Pepper
(Optional) a small can of tuna (drained), or 100g or so of chopped seafood (fish fillet, prawns etc.)
 Oil to shallow fry
To serve: kewpie mayonnaise or sriracha

Method 
Peel the potatoes, cut into thin strings and soak in lightly salted water for 5-10 minutes.
Take the kimchi out of the container. Do not squeeze out the juice, cut kimchi into small pieces (best to use scissors).
In a large mixing bowl, put in kimchi, flour, salt, pepper, drained potato string and seafood if using.
Add enough water to combine all the ingredients together. Mix quickly until just combined.
Add oil in a hot frying pan so you have about 1cm of oil. When the oil is hot, spoon ¼ cup of mixture per pancake into frying pan. Cook two sides until golden brown. Serve hot with : kewpie mayonnaise or sriracha

Oh, nice, it's kind of like a hot latke. :) I've gotta try this next time I've got some kimchi to use up.

These pancakes sound great! I love kim chi and he loves potatoes. Sounds like a dish we'd both enjoy :)

Nic@diningwithastud 2:00 PM  

Love kimchi! These look amazing!

I love your post. Korean culture is very interesting. They have a different fashion style that is unique and aggressive (I know that is an entirely different blog...)
Their cuisine is not in any way less aggressive than their fashion sense. Very interesting dish. Must try...

Yum, the only time I tried Korean was when my best friend who studied in Seoul came to visit me here in Melbourne. She was the one who taught me about kimchi and I started liking it. Thanks for sharing this wonderful snack. I never saw kimchi as being a potato cake, intesting indeed!

Your pancakes look so delicious. They look like they have a bit of a crunch too, which I love. I've never had kimchi. It's now another thing on my to try list! :D

Jo 11:03 AM  

Delicious looking pancakes and I do love kimchi. I really can't imagine that I have friends who absolutely hate it! Cheez they don't know what they are missing.

janet @ the taste space 12:05 PM  

I just made a whole batch of kimchi and this looks like a great way to use it. :)

Yasmeen 12:12 PM  

Ooh, I think you've provided the right recipe for me to reenter the world of kimchi. When I first tried it, I loved it. Ate so much, just couldn't get enough! And then... I couldn't take it anymore.

I love the idea of making it into a fritter with potatoes. The mild-spicy-tangy flavors and texture combination is wonderful.

forestlily 12:49 PM  

Hi, Anh. Thank you very much for visiting and leaving your nice comment the other day.

And what a delight to get to know your blog! Lovely pictures and beautiful written recipes! I love kimchi, too. I have never thought of combination of kimchi and potatoes, making pancakes. How creative! Will come by again.

I've never had kimchi before - shocker, I know!

Those potato pancakes are so drool-worthy!

Jamie Jewell 1:30 PM  

I love Kimchi. We love eating that dish when we visit South Korea last May 2011, too bad I didn't had the chance to eat this fried one.

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen 2:53 PM  

You have me wanting to try Kimchi again. My first experience was not a good one but these sound so good.

Sips and Spoonfuls 4:35 PM  

Am I the only one in this whole wide world not to have tried kimchi?! Love the way you have stacked these in the last photo!

shez 8:18 PM  

I eat kimchi by the tub - it's one of my favourite foods. Love the idea of this pancake. It would make a great starter.

Kate at Serendipity 5:11 PM  

These are beautiful! I love kimchi. I love potatoes. I love potato pancakes. Hmmm....

Thanks for posting this! (gorgeous photos too)

Nami | Just One Cookbook 5:34 PM  

I eat kimchi and potatoes separately and never had them together. My kids are not into kimchi because it's spicy, but eating together with potatoes is a brilliant idea! I love your photos Anh. I can't say it enough!

foodwanderings 2:21 AM  

Srsly Anh. These pancakes look ah-mazing. I got to come up with so many pancake recipes in December and recognized how original yours is. Though mine won't have kimchi in them I wish you could send me some!! :)

Jamie 9:26 PM  

Mmm these look too good and I love the asian twist on the plain old potato pancake! Yum!

kankana 11:19 PM  

Kinchi with potatoes.. that's an interesting combo! Tangy and comforting at every bite.

mycookinghut 8:10 AM  

Looks really yummy!! Love the combo!

Monet 2:29 PM  

Like everyone has said, I love this combo! Thank you for sharing your wonderful pancakes and words my friend. No better way to end my weekend. I hope you have a week full of family and feasting. Blessings from Austin!
