Buchimgaru (Korean pancake mix) is widely used by Koreans instead of plain flour when making a variety of pancake-like dishes. It adds more flavor and a crispier texture. Though it looks just like regular flour, buchimgaru is a mix of different types of flour and other seasonings such as corn, garlic, onion, pepper and more. It is widely used to prepare traditional Korean-style pancakes (such as pajeon, haemul pajeon and kimchi jeon) which are very popular as appetizers or snacks because of their convenience and great taste. Buchimgaru is sold as a powder. Also, these pancakes are high in calories, so don't over-consume.
