This side dish is made with crabsticks, eggs, flour, and different kinds of vegetables. This food brings back memories of my school days. When somebody brought this side dish to school, it was very popular with their friends. Depending on what you have or what you like, you can substitute, add, or delete some of the vegetables. You can also use shrimp instead of the crabsticks. If you have a chance to make a Korean lunch box for somebody, this is a good food for it.
Yield: 1 Dozen Pancakes
Short Korean Lesson
- MatSal (맛살) = Fake Crab Stick
- GoChu (고추) = Hot Pepper
- 4 Korean Crabsticks (1 Cup Chopped)
- 3 Eggs
- ⅓ Onion (⅓ Cup Chopped)
- 1 Green Onion
- 1 Tbsp Carrot
- 1 or 2 Hot Peppers
- 6 Tbsp Flour
- ¼ Tsp Salt
Chop 4 Korean crabsticks (1 cup), ⅓ of an onion (⅓ cup), 1 Green Onion, 1 Tbsp of carrot, and 1 or 2 Hot Peppers finely. If you do not like hot peppers, you can use sweet peppers instead.
Break and then beat 3 eggs.
Add the chopped vegetables and crabsticks to the egg and then mix everything together.
Add ¼ tsp of salt and mix again.
When you scoop the batter, it should not run off the spoon. Get a spoonful of batter.
In a oiled pan, put a spoonful of batter and make the shape round. Plenty of oil gives better flavor. Fry them on medium with patience.
When the bottom of the jeon becomes golden brown, flip it over. When the other side of jeon becomes golden brown as in the picture, it is done.
They look pretty and delicious. Of course, they taste good too. I want to share this crabstick jeon with you. Here you go~~~ Thanks!
