Mustard spinach (komatsuna) (1/2 of a bunch (150g))
Onion (1/4 of an onion)
Dried young sardines (chirimen jako) (1/3 cup (20g))
Pastry flour (50g)
Potato starch (50g)
Chicken soup stock (1 tsp)
Milk (1/2 cups)
Eggs (1 egg)
Salad oil (1 tbsp (x2))
Sesame oil (1 tsp (x2))
<Dipping sauce>
Mizkan AJIPON® (2 tbsp)
Korean red chili paste (gochujang) (To taste)


  1. Cut the mustard spinach into 1-cm long pieces. Thinly slice the onion and cut into 1-cm pieces.
  2. Combine the flour, potato starch and chicken soup stock in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and combine with milk, and then add this to the flour mixture. Mix together with a whisk until the consistency is smooth.
  3. Add [1] and dried young sardines to [2], and then mix to evenly combine the mixture.
  4. Heat salad oil (1 tbsp) in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour in half of [3] and flatten. When the mixture starts to brown, turn it over and cook both sides until crispy, pressing down occasionally with a spatula. To finish, pour sesame oil (1 tsp) over the edges of the frying pan and turn.
  5. Cook the rest of the batter in the same way as in [4] and cut into bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl and add AJIPON.
      *Also delicious with Korean red chili paste (gochujang), if preferred.
