Active Time: 5 Minutes
Total Time: 30Minutes
1 Quart Batter
Pre-heat a pot of neutral flavored oil to 375°F.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, Batter Bind S, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Whisk in the kimchi brine until the mixture is smooth and uniform. If you don’t have enough kimchi brine you can add soda water to bring it up to 395g. Set aside until trying.
To fry, dip the pieces of kimchi into the batter. Briefly allow them to drip any excess batter off.
Place each piece of kimchi in the oil and hold for 3 seconds before releasing. This will keep the batter from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Fry for 1 minute on each side before removing. Remove from the oil and blot dry on paper towels. Do not salt before serving.
