Blogging Marathon# 38: Week 3/ Day 1

Theme: One Dish, Different Countries

Dish: Korea — Kimchi Pancakes

Being a food blogger, I am always looking for new dishes to make. I rarely repeat or make the same dish again unless it is an everyday dish that the family is used to. My husband was saying the other day I cook for the blog and not for them. Mmmmm, I think I’m guilty of doing that, but I don’t usually comment when he says that because I need my taste-testers happy and not grumpy.

Talking about new dishes, when I made this Kimchi — I wasn’t actually sure what to use it in. Then I found Kimchi fried rice recipe which I really liked. But as I said before, repeating dishes is something that happens very rarely, I looked for something else to make with kimchi and I found these Kimchi pancakes on the Kitchn and they seemed simple and easy to make with just a few ingredients.

We are starting our 3rd week of Blogging Marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘One Dish — Different Countries‘. So I’ll be making 3 different pancakes from 3 countries in the next 3 days. Starting off with Korean Kimchi Pancakes.

My homemade Cabbage Kimchi is not as red in color as the pancakes in the Kitchn post, but otherwise the taste of these pancakes was awesome.

  1. Nice one Pavani, I get the same complaint that I don’t cook for them but for the blog especially when they have to wait for the pictures to be taken. The pancakes look so good and love your presentation. Jayanthi(sizzlingveggies)

  2. Lovely photos and lovely idea of pancakes! Whole Foods has Vegan Kimchi (without the fish sauce) and they also carry Worcestershire sauce (without the Anchovies)! Try it out!

  3. I guess all of us are guilty of the same Pavani, so you don’t have to feel bad heheh..anyway there is a positive side where we realize if not for our blogs, we might never try anything new…lovely theme and love your presentation..the pancakes look yum!

  4. Every food blogger should live with this comment I guess. 😉 ;). But after seeing the comments in our blog, it is worth it I guess. As usual they look stunning Pavani. A very new recipe.

  5. he, he usual complaint in every food blogger’s home!! Pancakes look cute, had to try this kimchi @ home!! 🙂
