  • Frying Pan
  • Whisk
  • Round small pancake ring (optional)
  • Slotted turner spatula
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mandoline or sharp knife



  • ½ Medium Sweet Potato Thin Juliennes
  • 1 Zuchinni Thin Juliennes
  • ½ Leek White part only Thin Juliennes
  • 2 Green Onions Chopped
  • 2 Tsp Ginger Finely chopped
  • 2 Tsp Hot Green pepper Finely chopped
  • 1-2 Mushrooms Sliced


  • ¾ Cup Flower
  • 2 Tbsp. Potato Starch
  • 2 Tsp Cornstarch
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Water

For Frying

  • 2-3 Tbsp. Peanut oil 2-3 Tbsp at the time per each frying round

Dipping Sauce

  • ½ Cup Soy sauce
  • ½ Cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp. Korean chili pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar or Maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Sesame oil
  • 1 Tsp Roasted sesame seeds


  • Cut all the vegetables into thin juliennes and place them in a large mixing bowl. Place the mushroom slices on a separate plate.
  • In a separate bowl, mix all the batter ingredients for a smooth, lump-free texture.
  • Pour the batter into the vegetable mixture and mix well so that each veg is covered in batter.
  • Heat about 3 tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium-high heat and place a greased pancake ring on the sides, inside the oiled pan.
  • Pour about 2 tablespoons of the vegetable batter into the hot oil and flatten the pancakes into a very thin, round shape with a wooden spoon. Put a slice of mushroom or two on top and gently tighten with a spoon. Fry for about 5 minutes on 1 side or until golden.
  • Gently detach the pancake from the ring with a spatula. Turn the pancake over and fry on the other side for another 7 minutes until golden and crispy on both sides and the dough is completely cooked. Can be turned again if the pancake is not completely golden.
  • Transfer the pancakes to a plate with a paper towel.
  • Mix all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Dip each piece in a soy dip and eat. Bon apetite!
