How to make it
- Wash and then cut zucchini into matchstick pieces (see pics above). Peel and julienne carrots or grate for smaller pieces. Set aside in a large mixing bowl.
- Combine ingredients (minus the dipping sauce) together in the mixing bowl until a thick batter is created. It should be similar thickness as regular pancake batter, so adjust the amount of flour and water accordingly.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add a generous amount of olive oil. When hot, pour half of the batter evenly over the pan. Cook for about 7, 8 minutes or until the bottom and its edges are browned. Carefully flip over and cook for about 5 more minutes or until browned.
- Meanwhile, mix the ingredients for the dipping sauce and set aside. Sliced/diced green onions, onions, green or red peppers are common ingredients for the dipping sauce.
- Transfer to a paper-lined plate to remove excess oil and let cool for a few minutes. Plate whole or cut pancakes into desired pieces with the dipping sauce. Enjoy
- *Like with many Korean pancakes, be sure to use a generous amount of oil when frying, the pancakes don't stick to the pan and allows even cooking. There is nothing worse than torn/ripped pancakes unless the recipe calls for it.
