In korea this dish goes by three names: Buchimgae, Jijimi or Jeon. But they all mean the same thing: Korean Pancake.
In korea we usually eat this dish on days when it rains. Why? Well…
1.When the pancake is cooked in the pan, it makes a sound very similar to rain.
2.When it’s rainy, our discomfort index is high and blood sugar level is low. So some flour-based food appeals to us as a our body reaction.
3.We usually feel cold on rainy day so we look for food which is high in calories and hot to eat.
Tha main ingredients for the pancake are seafood, chives, potato, spring onion, Kimchi and sesame leaves.
It’s a great snack and appetizer. And usually served with Korean traditional rice wine ‘Mak Geol Li’
