Making Kimchi Pancakes -

by NAIZA

Who would have thought that Kimchi has been around for so many ages of century now ever since the dish originated from South Korea.

No doubt. Kimchi is probably the most healthiest side dish because it is mainly composed of wide variety of vegetables fermented together using organic seasoning like red chili peppers, salt, liquid anchovy jeot. That makes it a big part of Korean and Oriental cooking for having more than 200 types of variety.
