Korean Vegetable Pancakes with Easy Soy Dipping Sauce

Recently I have been addicted to korean cooking. Even though i don't get many of their ingredients, i try to recreate their food using the available ingredients from my place. This is one of the simplest dish which you can make. It is not only easy to make, but is so yummy and healthy as well. Great for your kids, since lots of veggies are added in this. My lil one loved it and never identified any veggies in this. The main thing in this recipe is, you have to cook it on a medium low heat till it crisp up nicely, use need to use little extra oil to get that process going..

One of my bestie nameeta, whatsapp' ed me a picture of korean seafood pancake which she made and it looked so good and yummy. Ever since i wanted to create it on my own. Since i am not very fond of seafood, i made this using veggies and i added an egg in it. If you are pure vegetarian you can skip the egg and make it only using veggies. You can add cabbage, zucchini in this as well. Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
