Korean kimchi pancakes
These Korean-style pancakes are quick, easy, and perfectly spicy. 

¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup kimchi, drained and chopped, juices reserved
1 courgette, grated
2 green onions, chopped
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Make the Sriracha cream sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Sriracha, and condensed milk; set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, kimchi, zucchini, green onions, salt and sugar until well combined.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is very hot, scoop about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake, flatten each one with a spatula, and cook until the undersides are nicely golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Serve immediately, drizzled with the Sriracha cream sauce.
