One of our favourite foods to introduce to new Korean lovers is Kimchi Jeon! Sometimes, kimchi on its own is a bit of a hit and miss for first-timers due to the spicy nature, and is perhaps an acquired taste. However, Kimchi jeon (kimchi pancake) is never disappointing!
Made of flour, eggs, kimchi, onion and peppers this pancake batter is then lightly fried to give a crispy finish whilst the middle is soft with crunchy kimchi textures. This recipe is simple and totally scrumptious. Kimchi jeon is a staple at Korean markets, so if you have a chance to visit a food market make sure you get one of these! There are also different types of pancakes such as potato (gamja jeon), spring onion (pajeon, see our recipe here) and seafood (haemul jeon) to name a few.
