Hotteok, usually defined as sweet korean pancakes, are one of the most popular street snacks in Korea, especially during winter.
It’s very tasty and very easy to make.
WHAT DO WE NEED:
- 250 gr Flour
- 50gr sugar
- 175 ml Water/milk/soy milk
- 1 pack of yeast
- 2 tbs Brown sugar
- 1 tbs Cinnamon powder
- 2 tbs chopped walnuts
- Honey: 1 tbs (optional)
I’ve also made some using red paste bean (from the previous post) and a sweet potato filling; but the “traditional” filling is my favorite.
HOW TO :
Pour the water into a bowl. Add the sugar and yeast, stir well.
Add the flour and mix it with a spatula, or by hand. (Spatula is the way to go if you don’t want it to be too messy).
Let the dough rise (at least 1 hour).
Pretty simple, mix all the ingredients together.
See, it was easy
Shape and cook your Hotteok:
Divide dough into desired number of Hotteoks, a ball shape would be the best. The dough will be a little sticky, so you might need some flour.
Flatten the dough ball, put some filling in the center, and then seal it.
Heat up the pan over medium heat, add oil.
Place your hotteok on the pan (sealed side down) and let it cook for 30 seconds.Turn it over and press the dough with a spatula.
Cook 3 minutes on each side.
It tastes the best right away. I kept some for today’s breakfast and although they were still tasty, the texture wasn't as good.
Feel free to post some of your recipe :3
