Total time
Serves: 3-4
  • For the batter:
  • 1 medium potato, cut into small dices and purée with a food chopper.
  • half a red onion, diced
  • 4-5 slices crispy bacon, chopped
  • half a cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Dipping sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • a handful of chopped green onion
  1. Whisk soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, toasted sesame seeds and green onion in a small bowl and set aside to serve as dipping sauce later.
  2. Cut a potato into small dices first and throw into a food chopper to make a purée.
  3. Mix potato purée, red onion, bacon, flour, potato starch, salt and pepper in a big bowl to make the batter.
  4. In a non-stick pan, add a touch of oil and heat over medium heat, shake the pan around to let the oil spread evenly.
  5. Use a large ladle spoon, carefully pour the batter onto the pan and then form a round shape with the spatula, continue the process to make several pancakes until the pan is full.
  6. Pan fry for about 5 minutes one side. (wait at least 2-3 minutes until the batter is set before shaking the pan to avoid sticking.)
  7. Flip the pancakes around and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes.
  8. Flip the pancake again, turn to high heat, and pan fry for another minute until heated through.
  9. Serve and enjoy with the dipping sauce!
