  • 100 g Chinese Chives
  • Onion
  • 80 ml Water
  • 40 g Flour
  • 30 g Potato Starch
  • 15 g Chinese Chicken Broth
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil


  • Cut the chives into pieces about 3~4cm wide and slice the onion.
  • In a bowl, add the flour, potato starch, and chicken broth
  • Also add in the cut vegetables and water, then mix everything together, making the batter.
  • In a frying pan with some sesame oil, begin pouring in the batter.
  • Once one side is nicely browned, flip and cook the other side.
  • Cover and steam for a bit, then remove the lid and cook until a little crispy.


As all you need to do is mix and cook them, making these Korean pancakes is quite easy. The batter has enough flavor on its own that you don’t really need any sauce, also making it a good option for a kids snack. Switching out and adding your favorite vegetables works well too.
