Korean Hot Dogs Recipe
Korean corn dogs are hot dogs that have been battered, deep-fried, and topped with sugar. They’re sweet and salty and very delectable.
Is there anything more delectable or entertaining than a Korean corn dog?! I’m obsessed with the sweet and salty combo of the crispy outside batter, and the stretchy cheese pulls! If you’ve ever watched a K-drama or had even a passing interest in Korean culture, you’ve seen Korean corn dogs: gorgeously cooked, golden battered hot dogs with cheese on a stick, coated with a dazzling dusting of sugar.
Korean corn dogs can be found anywhere. Street food exists, and it’s not strange that it’s so popular. I tasted a fresh-from-the-fryer Korean corn dog back when travel was still a thing, and it was delicious. The batter was crisp and delicious, and the cheese was melty. I’ve been craving Korean corn dogs like crazy, and cooking them at home is the next best thing, so here we are.
- Skewers. The skewers you use are essential. They won’t be able to support your Korean corn dog if they’re too slender. Use a solid wooden skewer (I used these) or a disposable wooden chopstick. Because they have a pointed tip, I like the wooden skewers.
- Cheese, hot dogs, and batter are all served cold. Keeping your mozzarella, hot dogs, and batter chilled is critical. When they’ve been at room temperature for too long or have warmed up, the cheese leaks out when deep-fried. It’s better to chill the dogs and cheese in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- The good mozzarella. When it comes to cheese, using low moisture mozzarella blocks is essential. String cheese can be used; however, block mozzarella cut into sticks is significantly more stretchy and melty.
- The oil is hot. 350°F is the ideal temperature for frying these corn dogs. See the section below to determine your ideal deep-fry temperature.
- At most, one or two at a time. If this is your first time, coat and fry the corn dogs in batches of one or two. This ensures that the cheese and batter remain cold in the refrigerator. The colder the cheese and batter, the less likely they will leak while cooking. A puddle of melted cheese in boiling oil is a disaster!
- Don’t skimp on the sweet stuff. The sugar coating may appear excessive, but the sweet and salty combination makes Korean corn dogs so delicious!
- Potatoes. Another standard coating for Korean corn dogs is chopped up fries. Gamja hotdogs are a delightful mix of corn dogs and fries. Instead of coating your battered hot dog in panko, roll it in diced up frozen French fries and panko, then fry as usual.
How to Check the Temperature of Your Oil:
- I highly recommend investing in an instant-read thermometer to ensure flawless corn dogs. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can use a thick wooden skewer or disposable chopstick to see if your oil is ready. Immerse the skewer in the oil.
- There are no bubbles because the oil isn’t heated enough.
- The oil bubble faintly but steadily around the chopstick: you’re ready to cook.
- Your oil appears to be boiling around your chopstick: it is too hot.
- It’s also essential to have enough oil so the corn dogs can float. This is how you’ll achieve a uniform golden brown tint.
Variations in Korean corn dogs:
Almost a thousand different types of Korean corn dog coatings are available in Korea. If you’ve eaten the original and want to broaden your corn dog horizons, here are some suggestions!
- Gamja-hot dog: French fried hot dogs are called gamja hot dogs. In Korean, gamja means potato, and they use diced up French fries to cover instead of panko. The fries are crispy and salty, and they go perfectly with hot dogs and cheese.
- Cornflake dogs: For an honest take on corn dogs, use broken up cornflakes instead of panko. Cornflakes’ toasted corn flavour complements remarkably nicely.
- Crushed up instant ramen packets lend a lot of crunch to ramen dogs. You can also add the seasoning packet for extra instant ramen flavour.
- Crispy rice — Crispy rice puffs are a good touch – you can smash rice crackers or look for Korean rice puffs and roll your corn dog in rice rather than panko.
- Hot Cheetos – hot Cheetos provide crunch and spice to the dish. Drizzle some lime and mayo on top, and it’s AMAZING, especially with a mozzarella dog.
