Gamjajeon (Korean Potato Pancakes). Savoury potato pancakes with a delicious onion flavour. Made with only 4 ingredients. Pairs deliciously with a gamjajeon sauce made with soy vinegar sauce.
Gamjajeon korean potato pancake is one of my favourite things to eat as a side dish or appetizer! I mean if you love potatoes and onions, then this recipe is for you!
I just love the crispy texture on the outside and the soft chewiness on the inside. The sauce is gamjajeon sauce is such a must with this tasty side dish but honestly, it’s pretty darn good on its own as well.
You can find this amazing dish on the streets of Korea where they sell street food. They usually serve it in a larger size but I decided to share a mini version of them because it’s a lot easier to eat this way.
