Vegetable Pancake (Yachaejeon: 야채전)

(mid-tempo lighthearted music) – Hi, everybody, spring has come. (birds chirp) I love this kind of really warm weather. I love it outside, really, really feel really refreshing. Today’s recipe is yachaejeon,
vegetable pancake. (pancake sizzles) To celebrate this springtime, I wanna flip my pancake, right? (laughs) Are you in the kitchen right now? These guys are from my
refrigerator, just I found, and this is a leek. If you don’t have leek, you don’t have to use this. And this is green onion. Green onion definitely
you guys have to use because make it really tasty. And this is sweet potato or carrot, onion, and zucchini, and green
chili pepper or jalapeno. And this is mushroom, just you can use shiitake mushroom, or any white mushroom, and this is portobello
mushroom, only one (laughs). With any vegetables you can make a nice, delicious vegetable pancake, yachaejeon. Non-stick skillet, this is
my 12-inch non-stick skillet. I always hide this somewhere. So let’s start. So I will use just four green onions, cut around one inch size. This amount of leek, just slice. And zucchini,
I will use around this amount. Cut into matchsticks. This is jalapeno, slice thinly. If you can’t eat spicy food, just skip it. Let’s measure, I need like 2½ cups, so this is my cup. This is around one cup. And let’s add onion. Slice this. Let’s see. Another one cup, so total two cups, and we need half cup. So I use this sweet potato. When it’s cooked with other vegetables it’s really, really good, tasty. I’m using my knife because
no time to find my peeler. So this amount. I think this is, yeah. So let’s see, half cup, so 2½ cups all vegetable mix. So all leftover vegetables
I’ll put in my plastic bag, and keep in the refrigerator so that I can make more anytime, one more, two more, you
know, I can make this. My mushroom is lonely because I didn’t take
care of this guy (laughs). Okay, and I’m just going to
cut it, just slice thinly. I will use 3/4 cup
flour, all purpose flour, 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup. You guys know that 1/2 cup
plus 1/4 cup equal 3/4 cup. And salt 1/2 teaspoon, 3/4 cup water, so 1/2 cup, and mix. As you see lots of vegetables, less flour, so we eat lots of vegetables. Let’s heat the skillet
over medium high heat, vegetable oil about two tablespoon. I’m using a generous
amount of vegetable oil, now I use two tablespoons,
later one more tablespoon because it has to be
really crunchy outside. So if you use just less oil, it’s not going to be crunchy. That’s a kind of tip. I’ll put this all. (pancake sizzles) Just spread this evenly
thin, thin pancake. And I will turn down the heat to medium. And then, I will just add mushroom. Okay, so now, just only one minute later, I can see the bottom is just
moving around like this. I like to make some of my
sauce, dipping sauce. Soy sauce about one tablespoon, and vinegar around two teaspoons, hot pepper flakes, this is optional, you don’t have to use if you don’t have, and sesame seeds. Mix it. That’s it, this is my dipping sauce. Couple of minutes I cook this. You can see on the
bottom, bottom side is a little, sound, you can hear that, eh? So you can use your spatula, just turn, or just like me, flip. Let’s flip, why? To celebrate spring. And then I’m going to turn up the heat, and one more tablespoon vegetable oil. Just lift one edge and tilt, so this oil is going to the center. It has to be really crunchy. I’m gong to cook around
three minutes from now, but I’m not going to leave here. I will keep an eye on this because I need to take
responsibility, isn’t it? (mid-tempo playful music) Hey, look at that, isn’t it pretty? This mushroom is really, really pretty. It look like it’s inlaid. Turn off. (pancake sizzles) Here you go. So sauce. Mmm, so good, really delicious. Let me taste one more. Mmm. Mmm, (giggles) crunchy outside, inside is kind of really soft. And all this vegetable’s taste
is all different texture. Kimchi, mmm. Little by little,
already 1/3 is gone. And also this kimchi is well fermented, and go well really, really together. In Korea, when we make this yachaejeon, we serve this as snack. But sometimes just like
me, I eat as lunch. Usually, like rainy days,
especially on the weekend, all family are at home, and mom is making this kind of pancake. And when she makes this
pancake in the kitchen, that smells like a kind of
oily smell and vegetable, some nice kind of smells,
it all gives off. And make all the family
members just excited. You guys can make this on
a rainy day and make this, and then, “Oh, today, I
like to make my house,” “so really mood very nice, festive,” “so I make this just like Koreans.” You can say that (laughs). Today we made yachaejeon,
vegetable pancake. Enjoy my recipe. See you next time, bye! (cheerful guitar music)

  1. Hi Maangchi
    I am from India & live in the southern part of the the country……we have a similar receipe over here….. called VEGETABLE UTHAPPAM…… but instead of all purpose flour we use a ground batter made of rice & lentils……add as much as veggies as possible……& make something called chutney as side dish……
    I am surprised at the similarities between our types of cooking 🤩🤩

  2. Hello from Morocco 😀 first I see a youtuber and lover from the first sight cause I believe you are a beautiful soul …. I like to eat healthy and easy stuff , I am gonna do it but I will replace flour with oats flour and coconut oil and see if it is gonna be tasty or not 🙂

  3. Hola maanngchi, gracias por tus recetas, me gusta !uchos las verduras, gracias, te ve muy bonita con tus adornos en la cabeza. Saludos desde España. Sigue enseñando comidas de tu país me gustan mucho.

  4. Hi Maangchi We also have a similar recipe. We called it OKOY here in the Philippines, the vegetable we are using is bean sprouts instead of zucchini and sweet potato. I am excited to try this one. It looks delicious 💕💕💕💕

  5. Looks so yummy! Will definitely try this recipe. Not sure if I am able to flip the pancake as well as you n hopefully I won't flip it onto the floor lol😂 Thank u for sharing❤

  6. Hi Master Chef,
    I love ur cooking, normally I don't like chef explaining things but I like the way u explain, you are so cute..
    Love from India

  7. I from North India, and we use to cook very similar kind of dish called Chilla, in that, we use gram flour instead of all-purpose flour and little bit mustard/groundnut oil. But thank you for presenting this dish, don't know why but all the Asian countries have quit similarity in culture food and living style.

  8. thanks for sharing 🙂 can't wait to try it. 🙂 I think i would try oats whole wheat flour or even lentils and beans for batter. I like that you used fluor though because its just a basic grain product we are all familiar with we can use what ever hundreds of seed plant foods there are available these days like the variety of veggies you said can be used to make these veggie pancakes makes it a recipe template making it easier to fit the recipe in with our current diet and availability of certain produce at difference times of the year. I mostly still cooked food back when i was pov and it was all pasta nothing fancy im trying to learn more ways of making good food now that my life is better. Thanks so much for making these videos. So many people across the world from Canada to China need to know the most important life stills to learn are not in the schools we were sent to away from family. Its sacred that people have the chance to access this kind of thing to improve their lives and be inspired by. The internet is not evil, just like everything else its what people do with it that matters. We have more busy body career people and poor people non of which know about food much in any way nor do they seek it out they go to institutions for "learning". Truth is we can't eat money, its not worth sending kids to schools if they can't interact with living food other then just eating it. Every effort people make in sharing instead of judging and trolling, the more people have a chance to change themselves. Independence, environment community 🙂 55,00 plus people inspired, almost 900 people are are afraid of success still the scholastic competitive vs cooperation mindset of the consumer society cult. I don't like cooking my food much, i wouldn't use white flour but I don't down the video. just don't watch it, or find something positive. 🙂

  9. Another nice tasty quick to make and clean up recipe 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.
    I used some butter(1/2 spoon or so) while cooking, it gives nice aroma and taste.

  10. Maangchi, you are cheerful and you show some lovely easy to make recipes, it always puts me in the mood to cook and eat healthy food.

  11. I don't know if anyone has told you but in Indonesia we have similar food, it's called "bakwan" here ^^ the recipe kinda similar but we use smaller size, it's not as big as pancake like this and yours has more vegetables. Watching this now I have new idea to fry bakwan, thank you XD

  12. Maangchi! Im so glad I found u again. YTube keeps unsubscribing me from channels. Thanks for ur work showing us how to make fabulous healthy simple ingredients dishes. Bless u. GrannyMack😊

  13. You are adorable! And this looks delicious. My family is vegetarian and I will definitely be trying this. I'm so glad you spoke about the pancake being crispy. I am an impatient cook. I get too rushed and never get things crispy enough when I fry them.
