WHAT TO LEARN: Hotteok (Pan-fried Sweet Pancake)
Hotteok is one of the most beloved winter street snacks in Korea. As it has become more popular, Hotteok vendors can be found on the streets throughout the all winter time. It is crispy on the outside and inside can be filled with many variety. It is a magical pancake that will make you feel warm and toasty. One bite of a Hotteok will make you forget the cold winter wind. Through the workshop, we will make the original version together, and also learn two other special versions.
The most popular and original version is called Kkul-Hotteok(꿀호떡) and it is filled with honey or sweet syrup, with the aroma of cinnamon.
Ssiat-Hotteok(씨앗호떡) is filled with lots of different nuts, such as sesame and sunflower seeds. This is very popular in Busan area.
There is also one called Japchae-Hotteok(잡채호떡). Japchae is stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables and it is an absolute classic and all-time favorite Korean dish! This is a unique combination.
