Description Edit

Korean pancake-Kimchijeon-05

Kimchi Jun (aka Kimchijeon or kimchi jeon (IPA: [kimtɕʰi dʑʌn]) ) is a variety of jun (aka jeon), or Korean pancake-like dish, made with sliced kimchi, flour batter and sometimes any other available vegetables. Kimchi, pickled vegetables seasoned with chili pepper and jeotgal, are a staple in Korean cuisine. The dish is good for using up ripened kimchi along with Kimchi Bokkeumbap (kimchi fried rice).

It is served as an appetizer, snack or banchan (side dish).

When making Kimchi Jun, the brine from the kimchi, especially that of baechu kimchi (made from Napa cabbage), is usually added in. So while the pancake is red, it's not spicy itself. With kimchi, it is served as anju (a side dish to go with alcoholic drinks) especially with makgeolli or dongdongju.
