Mung bean pancakes

I discovered these pancakes while watching Asian street food documentary in Netflix . Loved these beautiful thick cakes being deep fried dunked in hot oil to be crispy and golden brown hue on the outside. Moong dal chillas are quite common in Indian households but we make it thin and shallow fry with little oil drizzled.

In Korea they add eggs ,kimchi and soy sauce and pork. I made it completely vegetarian and dairy free. I did not have kimchi ,added cabbage with chili paste, and soy sauce. You can purchase the authentic Gochujang sauce and kimchi from amazon.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups moong dal soaked for 4 to 5 hours
  • 2 tbsp. kimchi or 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Gochujang paste or red chili paste
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup oil for frying

Preparations

  • Make a coarse paste of moong dal
  • Add kimchi ,chili paste and soy sauce etc in the batter.
  • Add little water if required
  • Heat the pan with oil
  • Add the dal batter with a round ladle.
  • fry in low heat till crispy and golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve with your favorite ketchup
