I enjoyed eating these sweet pancakes. The first time i made hotteok was long time ago here. They were good but this time i thought i want to try to use anothre recipe as this one uses glutinous rice flour which gives a slightly chewy texture and also these hotteoks are slightly different from the traditional plain ones as you can see they are golden yellow resulting from some pureed pumpkin added in.
|the next time i make them again, i 'm going to make them a little more flatter|
To me , they are just as delicious as the previous hotteoks that i made. They are stuffed with some nuts and brown sugar and when these get cooked on the pan, the sugar will melt making it a little syrupy and gooey and sweet, absolutely tasty! You can use any nuts of your choice though the most common is walnuts .
Very rare that you see me doing 2 posts on one day, i just want to do a last minute entry to the Aspiring Bakers event. So here I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers # 37 - Korean : The Feast of Hansik ( November 2013 ) hosted by Grace of Life Can Be Simple
Recipe ( from Korean Bapsang ), slightly changed
110gm plain flour
45gm glutinous rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/8 tsp instant yeast
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tbsp oil
1/8 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsp nuts of your choice, chopped ( mine was pistachios )
Mix flour, salt , sugar and yeast with a fork and using a dough hook on the mixer running on low speed, put in the pumpkin puree, water, milk and oil. Let it knead for about 5 minutes. Remove to a lightly floured surface , and shape into a round and let it proof for about 1-1.5hrs. ( the dough doesnt rise as much as to double its size )
Remove from bowl, lightly knead and divide the dough into 5 pieces. Shape into balls and let rest for 10mins. Take a piece and flatten into a disk , put in some fillings and seal the dough to wrap. Repeat with the rest of the balls.
Pour some oil onto a frying pan on medium heat and put in the shaped dough with sealed side down on the pan. Flatten it with a spatula, cook for a minute and flip over. Press down again to flatten it. Cook until both sides are golden brown. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
