Quick and Easy Korean Potato Pancake: Ingredients

• 2 potatoes, peeled

• 1⁄2 peeled onion

• 1 seeded green chili, thinly sliced

• Salt to taste

• 2 tbsp of rice bran oil

Quick and Easy Korean Potato Pancake: Method

• Blend the potato in a mixer or a grater.

• Drain the water from the blended potato, and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

• Blend the onion in a mixer or a grater.

• Mix the potato on a sieve and the onion in a bowl. Add some salt.

• Empty the water in the bowl and add any leftover potato starch from the bottom of the bowl into the potato and onion mixture above. Stir it well.

• Heat the pan on high heat and add some oil. Once the pan is heated, scoop out potato mixture and place it onto the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-high.

• Once one side of the pancake is almost cooked, garnish with the chili.

• When one side of the pancake is completely cooked, turn it over. Lightly press it with a spatula to flatten a bit.

• When the other side of the pancake is completely cooked, turn it over again to see whether it is cooked. If you prefer golden crispy pancakes, cook them both sides twice.

• Plate and serve hot.
