Hobak buchim is an easy buchim (fried dish) of fresh zucchini. You can serve this as a banchan (side dish) or an appetizer. It's tasty and simple.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 med size tender korean zucchini (hobak 호박) (about 1 lb)
  • 5-6 tbsp of flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 large zippered plastic bag
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil (any vegetable oil)

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash zucchini (hobak) and slice into small discs, about 1/4" thick.
  • Put flour in a ziploc bag and add salt and pepper; close and shake around to mix well. Add sliced zucchini into this bag and shake well; you can do a little by little or half of the slices at a time.
  • Add 3-4 tbsps of oil to a large non-stick frying pan and put on medium heat.
  • In a bowl, whip two 2 eggs and add a pinch salt (1/4 tsp). Take out the flour-dusted zucchini pieces and dip into the egg mixture; lightly coat the mixture and put it on the frying pan. Fry until the edges turn lightly brown (2-3 min) and turn it over. Fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add more oil as you fry new batches of zucchini.
  • Serve with dipping sauce or can eat without it. Dipping sauce can be simple soy sauce and balsamic vinegar (rice vinegar) mixed half and half; add pinch sesame oil and sesame seed and gochugaru (Korean red pepper powder) if you wish.
