Bindaetteok (also called nokdujeon or nokdu jijim; literally "mung bean pancake") is a variety of jeon, a Korean style pancake. It is made of ground mung beans, with green onions, kimchi, or peppers cooked in a frying pan.

History[edit]

Bindaetteok first appears under the name binjatteok in the Eumsik dimibang, a cooking encyclopedia written in the 1670s by Mrs. Jang, the wife of a public officer. The dish was originally prepared by frying a mixture of water-soaked and ground mung beans, pork, bracken fern, mung bean sprouts, and cabbage kimchi.[1] This food uses honey for seasoning, and meat was put on the bindaetteok. Rich people ate meat and poor people ate bindaetteok. Therefore, this dish was called bindaebyeong (貧乏; literally "poor person's pancake").

Ingredients[edit]

1/2 cup mung beans, soaked overnight
1 large egg (optional)
1/4 cup cabbage kimchi
1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1/4 tsp salt[2]

Meat, usually pork or beef, can also be added as an ingredient. In Korean restaurants, this dish is served with a small side serving of dipping sauce made of soy sauce, minced green onions, chili pepper flakes and some vinegar.
