Hi, everybody! I’m going to introduce 2 kinds of kimchijeon to you today: chopped kimchi pancake and non-chopped kimchi pancake.
The kimchijeon made with chopped kimchi is very easy and simple to make. You don’t need any special ingredients as long as you have some kimchi in your fridge. I usually make this style of kimchijeon at home.
The kimchijeon made with whole kimchi leaves is what I would call upgraded kimchijeon. ; )
Have you ever seen this kind of kimchijeon? My late grandmother used to make it for us. I thought this style of kimchijeon looked very special when I saw her cooking this pancake for the first time. I remember what I thought when I saw her making this pancake: “Hmm, grandma treats the kimchi leaf like a slice of fish? Interesting!” but I never told her what I thought. I just watched what she was doing.
I miss my grandmother now. She would be so proud of me if she knew I was posting her recipe here!
Which recipe would you like better? : )
In the video, I’m showing how to cut the big round chopped kimchi kimchijeon (12 inches wide because my frying pan is 12 inches wide) into bite sized pieces, but as I mentioned in the video, you could serve it right out of the pan without cutting. It’s usually served as family snack that way. Use your chopsticks to tear a piece of the kimchijeon from the plate. It may be difficult to do alone because the rest of the kimchijeon should remain on the plate for everyone else. So one of your family members should grab the pancake with her or his chopsticks so you can tear more easily. Helping each other is very important when you eat this way!
“Let me eat some, I need someone’s help! Grab the corner of this pancake for me, plz!”
If you cut it into bite sized pieces, it’s usually served as a side dish. It’s a popular side dish for lunch box, too.
Enjo~yee the recipe! : )
