  • Summary

    Buchimgaru, or Korean pancake mix, is widely used when making dishes such as this kimchi-jeon. Our homemade version calls for a combination of all-purpose flour, rice flour, cornstarch, and baking powder, and keeps the pancakes crisp and flavorful without the added preservatives often found in packaged mixes.

    • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon gochugaru (Korean hot red-pepper powder)
    • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
    • 1 scallion, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)
    • Pinch sugar
    • 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed, and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup rice flour
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 1/3 cups cold water
    • 1 cup cabbage kimchi, drained, squeezed dry, and chopped, plus 2 tablespoons liquid reserved, and more chopped kimchi for serving
