Egg Dumplings - Easy, Simple Korean Breakfast Banchan!

Ingredients

Egg Mixture

  • Small handful of Korean Dangmyeon Noodles (Meausre about the width of a quarter)
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • Small piece of Carrot (length of your pinky finger)
  • of a whole Onion
  • 1 or 2 stalks of Green Onion
  • of a whole Chili Pepper (optional)

Seasoning

  • ¾ Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • ¾ Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 teaspoon (!) Salt
  • 1 teaspoon (!) Sugar

Instructions

Boil Dangmyeon Noodles

  • Fill a pot with water. Place on high heat. When it comes to a roaring boil, place in a small handful of Dangmyeon Noodles. Set a timer for 7 minutes and boil away on medium-high heat. (Reduce to medium heat if it boils too violently). In the meanwhile, go prep your veggies.
  • Finely mince Onion (⅓ a whole) and Carrot (pinky-length piece) into small pieces. Dice 1-2 stalks of Green Onion into thin pieces as well. Then de-seed 1 chili pepper (or 1 jalapeno), and finely mince ⅓ of it into small pieces (this ingredient is optional). Place all of the veggies into a large mixing bowl.
  • Once the timer goes off (at 7 minutes), quickly strain the noodles. Cool it down under cold water. Then shake off the excess water from the noodles. Place the boiled noodles into a separate mixing bowl. Use kitchen scissors to cut the noodles into small pieces - be thorough!
  • Now, add these chopped noodles into the bowl with the other veggies. Crack in 3 eggs.

Season the egg mixture

  • To the bowl, add-in Soy Sauce (¾ Tablespoon), Sesame Oil (¾ Tablespoon), Sugar (1 teaspoon!), Salt (1 teaspoon!)
  • Give it a thorough mix - make sure everything gets mixed evenly!

Make Egg Dumplings

  • Place some oil onto a non-stick frying pan. Place on medium-low heat. Once the oil gets hot, carefully scoop on two spoonfuls of the mixture and make small circular piles around the pan.
  • Let it cook for 20-30 seconds so the bottom can set. Then use a spoon in one hand, and a spatula in another to carefully fold the eggs. Then flip the dumpling so the other side can cook through as well.
  • Once it cooks through on both sides, place on a plate.
  • Eat the mini dumplings with a bowl of hot rice and if you like - a dab of ketchup (+ tabasco).
  • Note: If you find folding the small dumplings challenging, make them bigger. Use a soup ladle and fill it ¾ to the top! Enjoy and ... have fun in the kitchen!
