Simple potato pancake (Gamjajeon: 감자전)

Posted by


– Hello everybody, today I’m going to make a really, really simple recipe. This recipe is so simple and easy that you can’t find any excuse not to cook. You have a potato at home?
Po-tah-to at home (laughs) then you can do. I like to cook outdoor so I
brought my burner from home, and then, oh by the way, I am in Montauk. I can cook anywhere, you guys too, so bring potato and keep watching and then right after
watching this video, make it. Today’s recipe is
Gamjajeon, potato pancake. A few years ago I already uploaded my Gamjajeon potato pancake recipe, but today’s version is different. This is a larger size and
instead of green color this is a white creamy color, probably easier, simpler than my old traditional Gamjajeon pancakes. Let’s start. Bring potato and be
ready to cook. (laughs) It is so sunny and windy so I’m
going to wear my sunglasses. So this is potato, very large size potato. I already peeled and cleaned. One potato I will use for one pancake, this nine inch pan, this is half a pound. And I’m going to soak in cold water, so that it’s not going to go brown. And I like to make this sauce first. Two tablespoons soy sauce, instead of vinegar, I’m using lime, just half of a lime, green onion, one green onion, and just a little bit onion. And this jalapeno optional,
if you like spicy food you can add. If you are not, just skip it. Little bit sugar, half a teaspoon, and mix well. Mmmm, delicious (laughs) First, one large potato,
I’m going to grate this, you can use also in a food processor. I like to use this grater, especially when I make small portions. So one potato, and just
a quarter teaspoon salt. I’m going to use around
quarter cup amount of onion, so I’m going to also grate this. Okay, this density too watery, we have to add something
like flour or starch powder, so I’m using potato starch. Quarter cup potato starch. And mix. My previous video, Gamjajeon video, I didn’t add potato starch. This is a much, much easier and simpler and delicious I think. You guys can make it at home very easily. Wind protection, really cute. First time I’m using actually, even before I never used it before. I hope it works well because so windy. And then we need oil, so cooking oil, this is grapeseed oil. About two or three tablespoons. Pour the batter (sizzling) and spread this. It’s nice, beautiful nine
inch pancake we are making. (cheerful music) (waves crashing) I feel a little crunchy on the bottom. We need to cook longer. So wind protection. (wind blowing in microphone) Just to eat one pancake
we work so hard like this, but when it’s done, really
make everybody happy. On the bottom, you can use a
spatula or you can flip over. Here you go (laughs) If we add more oil, more crunchy. Smells good. Some cooking ingredients
really go well together, especially potato and onion. Potato onion are so really close, just real best friends I think. If I use only potato, I don’t smell this, but now onion, little bit of onion, make it real smell so
so good and taste good. (sizzling) Wow, this is working
better than I thought. I have to turn down the heat. So how do you know, how do
you know this is crunchy, you know, on the bottom? So when you shake your
pan, you can hear that shk shk shk sound, right
that’s the crunchy sound. Nice. (soft sizzling) Total cooking time around
10 minutes it took. I will just turn it off. (sizzling) Potato pancake, easy isn’t it? Let me taste, when it’s warm, it’s tasty. Actually this pancake is even hours later still chewy and really tasty. Sauce we made. Just like a pizza. This is going to be for
one person or two people, so one or two servings. And let’s eat! I’ll put some sauce, jalapeno, here. Mmmm (chewing loudly) Oh my God, mmmm. Chewy soft, texture is like a rice cake, and crunchy part is
taste like french fries. Mmmmm. I will have one more. And some stuff. Mmmm. (laughs) You guys make this, just
like me we can say that: “Mmmmm, delicious!” As you see this pancake,
in 10 minutes we made, so easy, so only a few ingredients. Today we made Gamjajeon, potato pancake. Enjoy my recipe, see you next time, bye.

    Yo soy española y esta receta es exquisita con la salvedad de que para evitar el picante, se sustituye por pimiento verde o rojo. Lo demás muy bueno y además la salsa de soja sirve para cocinar la pasta al estilo oriental y creedme, está buenísima, tanto si se utiliza pollo o gambas. Enhorabuena por tu canal.

  10. A great adorable lady. Humour and common sense in abundance. Personally, I would not have her spicy sauce accompaniment but each to his own.  A delightful experience indeed !

  11. Lady you are too handy and quick with that knife. There is no way that I want to be around you when you get upset with someone. 🤣🤣 Honestly I love this and I love your cooking thank you for this, you made my day.😁😁😁

  12. My Jewish friends make the Jewish version of this!! Latkes are usually paired with apple sauce and sour cream and it’s so good!!!

  13. Potato pancakes are my comfort food. Last time I made them I used some left over cheddar and eggs of course, as customary in Poland. I'm drooling now!
