Korean Pancakes

This post will be a review on Ottogi Korean Pancake mix.

Recently.. on one of those weekly grocery runs with my parents, I came across this pancake mix! I love Korean pancakes. The ones where they add seafood, bell peppers, mushrooms or a combination of everything.

All you have to do with this mix is add water! Mix mix mix and throw in anything you would like in your pancake. For me, I added a batch with kimchi and a batch with mushrooms and onions. I loved both. The one thing I disliked about this mix is the oily-ness of it. I am not sure if it is the mix itself or the way I pan fried it.. The pancakes came out on the oily side and not as crunchy as the ones I get at Korean restaurants.

Taste: 3.5 stars out of 5 (the mix has a good flavor but slightly over oily)
Texture: 3 stars out of 5 (chewy)


  1. I am trying to read the instructions on the packet and not being Korean finding it difficult. Its not as simple as adding water, there is egg water , I think oil and a packet of yeast. Could you put the exact recipe up. I would really appreciate it if you did.

    Many Thanks

  3. Hi Julian!

    The pancake mix I got had English instruction on it. And all it said was get this amount of mix and combine with this amount of water. Really simple(:

    Sorry.. I am not Korean. Don't think I can help you with your doughnut mix. Maybe try google translating it? Btw, is it a Korean styled doughnut mix?

    Thanks for dropping by!
