By Pavani @napavani
Blogging Marathon# 38: Week 3/ Day 1
Theme: One Dish, Different Countries
Dish: Korea -- Kimchi Pancakes
Being a food blogger, I am always looking for new dishes to make. I rarely repeat or make the same dish again unless it is an everyday dish that the family is used to. My husband was saying the other day I cook for the blog and not for them. Mmmmm, I think I'm guilty of doing that, but I don't usually comment when he says that because I need my taste-testers happy and not grumpy. Kimchi Pancakes (Kimchijeon) Talking about new dishes, when I made this Kimchi -- I wasn't actually sure what to use it in. Then I found Kimchi fried rice recipe which I really liked. But as I said before, repeating dishes is something that happens very rarely, I looked for something else to make with kimchi and I found these Kimchi pancakes on the Kitchn and they seemed simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients.
Kimchi Pancakes (Kimchijeon) We are starting our 3rd week of Blogging Marathon today and my theme for this week is 'One Dish -- Different Countries'. So I'll be making 3 different pancakes from 3 countries in the next 3 days. Starting off with Korean Kimchi Pancakes.
Kimchi Pancakes (Kimchijeon) My homemade Cabbage Kimchi is not as red in color as the pancakes in the Kitchn post, but otherwise the taste of these pancakes was awesome.
