Gorge on something soft and spongy and allow your senses little by little to gasp for hot air.
- When you’ve had a heavy night and on the wagon in the morning and want a fulfilling brekkie to awaken those senses
- When you’re yearning for a Far Eastern brekkie and a full English won’t cut it
- When it’s the weekend and only a brunch that’s substantial and satisfying will cut the grade
Blanched almonds, I purchase from a nifty Asian outlet in Hayes. It has an online presence too which can be found here – I love it because it is reasonably priced and tends to be good quality stuff which I use.

- In a high-speed blender grind the millet, almond and salt. Add the kimchi and filtered water and liquidise.
- Transfer the kimchi mixture to a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the flour until the batter has a smooth consistency. Cover with cling film and leave the batter over. Season to taste further if necessary.
- The following day, add chopped spring onion to the batter.
- Toast the sesame seeds and set to one side.
- To make the dipping sauce, whisk together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and roasted sesame seeds. Set to one side.
- Heat the oil over a medium heat in a frying pan swirling the oil so that it coats the bottom and sides.
- Pour the batter into the pan, spreading to form a thin layer. Cook the pancakes until golden brown on each side. This should take about 3 to 4 minutes each side.
