I'm kinda addicted to anything about korea..
The food, the music, the language..OK, better stop there...
But i actually love the food the most! (Well, to be frank, any kind of food would be the thing i love so much =P)
Everytime i went back to Malaysia, i will usually eat korean food for at least once. There's one place at The Garden, next to Midvalley Megamall, where you'll find a halal korean restaurant, or should i say stall? Urm, because it's actually located at the foodcourt. Well, who cares? One thing for sure, the owner is truely Korean...lol.
The ahjumma (aunty in Korean) is reaaaally kind. Everytime i went there, she'll give me one free dish. EVERYTIME! Huu~ na nun cheongmal henbokkeyeo!
Sadly, it is soooo~ hard to find a halal korean restaurant especially in Bandung.. =(
Well, here i wanna share a very simple recipe which i learned from Maangchi@youtube
It is called hoddeok @ korean pancake..
Don't expect it to be like the pancake we used to eat or lempeng..
I prefer to call it as doughnut with filling...can u imagine it now?
I made this hoddeok twice..
It tasted uniquely nice and delicious..
Especially to those cinnamon-lovers...
Hoddeok (호떡) @ Korean Pancake
For the dough:
1/2 warm water
1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
for the filling (mix all together):
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp chopped nuts ( I used chopped almonds)
another 1/2 cup of flour
1. Dough: mix all except for the flour in a bowl.
2. Then add flour. Stir til combined.
3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap. (The dough kinda sticky, but it's ok..all u need to do is to stick to the recipe and the instructions. InsyaAllah, it will turns out well =))
4. Leave for 1 hour.
5. Pop out all the bubbles.
6. Cover and leave for another 10 minutes.
7. Knead the dough again to remove the gas bubbles.
8. Place and spread about ½ cup flour on your cutting board.
9. Put the dough on your cutting board and knead it. Make it into a lump, and cut it into 4 equal-sized balls.
10. Take 1 dough ball, flatten it, put some filling in the center of the dough, and then seal it to make a ball.
11. Repeat this 4 times to make 4 stuffed balls.
*tip: Use some flour from the cutting board to prevent your fingers from sticking to the dough
11. Heat up your non-stick pan over medium heat and add some vegetable oil.
12. Place 1 ball on the pan and let it cook for 30 seconds.
13. When the bottom of the dough ball is light golden brown, turn it over and press the dough with a spatula to make a thin and wide circle (about the size of a CD).
14. Let it cook about 1 minute until the bottom is golden brown.
15. Turn it over again and turn down the heat very low.
16. Place the lid on the pan and cook 1 more minute. The brown sugar filling mixture will be melted to syrup!
|Tada! These kinda over-fried actually..hehehe|
