Crispy Leek Pancake

Your stomach will be full for less than £1, it's perfect for just before payday.

Recipe By: tomato girl (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/54)
Serves 2 Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Leek 1
Water 200ml
Sugar 1 tsp
Black pepper a pinch
Chicken stock granules 1 tbsp
Potato starch or cornflour 30g
Flour 50g
Egg (large) 1
Your favourite sauce as you like

Method

1
This is a leek. Sweet and delicious but huge!
2
Finely chop the leek and add half to all the other ingredients (except the sauce).
3
Heat some sesame oil in a large frying pan and fry the other half of the leeks. This will sweeten the whole dish.
4
Fry for one minute then slowly pour in the mixture at Step 2 and spread evenly.
5
Pan fry for 3 minutes on medium heat. Turn it over carefully and fry again for another 3 minutes. It's ready.
6
Enjoy with the any favourite sauce!

Tips & Note

To make it crispy this time, I used potato starch as 40% of the flour amount. In supermarkets, you often see packs of 3 leeks - this recipe will use up any leftover leeks in one go.
