Bukkumi – Korean sticky rice flour pancake (red bean)

bukkumi

I used Maangchi’s recipe for bukkumi, which is ridiculously easy. In the video she says these can be made in 10 minutes; as this was my first attempt, I ran over slightly but only just.

I used Just Hungry’s red bean paste recipe.

And also tried a green bean/ mung bean filling using Maangchi’s recipe again.

Adding black sesame seeds for nuttiness and a lil crunch.

The bukkumi are fried but not particularly unhealthy as only a small amount of oil is used, a tsp or so, just enough to grease the pan.

Place on a baking tray lined with cling film or plastic as they’re ready. No touching or they’ll stick together. Freeze them as is, bagging when frozen solid. They keep for up to a month or so, cook straight from frozen.
