Korean Cookery Class Recipes

We hope you enjoyed your class with us, below are the recipes – if you have any questions for chef please do ask and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

We cooked:

  • Pork Mandu – Traditional Korean dumplings with dipping sauce
  • Korean Breaded Chicken – Light and crispy on the outside, juicy in the middle
  • Kimchi Fried Rice – Sticky-fried rice with a tang from the kimchi
  • Kimchi Slaw – Salted and spicy crunchy salad.

Pork Mandu

Ingredients – Makes 25:

  • – 150g minced pork (or beef) (4.6 ounces)
  • – 2 spring onions, sliced
  • – 10g garlic chives, finely chopped
  • – 2xm of ginger, grated
  • – 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • – 1/2 tsp of gochugaru
  • – 1tsp fish sauce
  • – 1tsp soy sauce
  • – 1tsp sesame oil
  • – salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine and mix the filling ingredients in a mixing bowl. (I used my hand to mix.)
  3. Place a dumpling wrapper on your palm and add the filling in the centre of the wrapper. Dip your finger in the water and lightly wet the edge of the dumpling wrapper. Seal the wrapper then place it on a non-stick flat surface. (I’m still a newbie when it comes to folding dumplings, so here is an awesome video instruction on “6 ways to fold a dumpling“. Don’t get intimidated by it if yours don’t look pretty at first. It takes some practice to make them pretty.)
  5. Repeat step 2 until you use up the remaining ingredients.
  7. Cook mandu per your preference.

Pan-Fried Mandu:

In a well heated pan, add some cooking oil. Place some mandu and cook over medium high heat until the bottom of the mandu is golden brown (2 to 3 mins). Reduce the heat to medium to medium low. Add the water (1/4 cup) and put the lid on to cook with the steam. This will ensure the meat is thoroughly cooked without burning. Your mandu should be ready to eat when most of the water disappears in the pan (in about 5 mins).

Steamed Mandu:

Place some non-stick materials (e.g. cabbage leaves or baking paper) on a steamer and place the mandu in it. Make sure the mandu are not touching each other. Put the lid on. Place the steamer over rolling boiling water (in a sauce pan) and cook the mandu for 15 to 20 minutes on medium low heat.

  1. Serve the mandu on a plate while still hot and with Korean dumpling sauce.
