Gochujeon/Korean Green Pepper Pancakes ~~ Korean Cuisine

If you are following my blog since few days,you might have noticed that am posting a month of blogging marathon with world cuisine starting with alphabets. After Jordanian cuisine, now am taking you all to Korean cuisine.Rice is the staple food of Koreans usually rice is accompanied by various side dishes, seasoned vegetables, soup, meat and stew. A Korean traditional meal is not complete without kimchi, a mixture of various pickled vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, radish, green onion and cucumber. Certain types of kimchi are made spicy with the addition of red chili pepper powder, while others are prepared without red chili peppers or are soaked in a tasty liquid. However, garlic is always used in kimchi to add to its flavor.Koreans have great variety of noodle dishes,various types of soups with or without meats and vegetables. Great varieties of side dishes are served during Korean meals.They have their own way of serving their dishes.Rice and soup are served on individual bowls, but side dishes are served in small dishes at the center of the table to be shared. Because each region of Korea produces different wild vegetables and ingredients, obviously there are hundreds of different side dishes.Rice is not only their main dish, they make special rice cakes for many occasions, and their desserts goes always for a tray of tea and cookies.

Korean Green chilli pepper pancake, Gochujeon,Eggless korean pancake


I opted for an authentic Gochujeon,made with green chilli peppers. This pancakes goes for simple ingredients, which attracted me to give a try. Since this recipe goes for green peppers, any kind of peppers works here. I got this Gochujeon from here, the author Maangchi shared this green chilli peppers pancakes as a mild spicy and less salty version eventhough her grandmon who passed this recipe makes extremely salty and spicy gochujeon. The important ingredient for making this pancake is the fish sauce, this sauce is easily available in every chinese stores, thank god am living in Chinatown. Obviously i got my small bottle of fish sauce to give a try to this gochujeon. They came out simply fabulous,Maangachi suggested to serve this pancakes with rice but we loved this pancake simply with tomato ketchup.
