Pajeon (Korean Green Onion Pancakes)
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped Napa cabbage (35g)
  • 2 green onions, julienned (20g)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet pepper (45g)
  • 1/3 cup cake flour (42g)
  • 1 heaping tbs rice powder (16g)
  • 1/2 cup cold water (125g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt (300mg)
  • 1/4 tsp Accent (MSG) (1g)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
Cake flour makes a crispier pancake than all-purpose flour. If you cannot find rice powder (which is different from the grainy 'rice flour'), substitute with more cake flour. This recipe is a great way to eat a good quantity of kidney-friendly vegetables.
