Korean Pancake aka Pajeon Recipe (includes different varieties ideas from Seafood aka Haemul and so on)

Korean Pancake is one of my favorite Korean food. Love the crispy, slightly chewy and yet flavorful taste.

1 teaspoon thinly sliced Scallion (optional)
0.25 teaspoon of Korean Chili Flakes or Spicy Korean Chili Seasoning (optional)

Measure all the amount in a small sauce bowl and give it a light whisk to combine all the ingredients for the dipping sauce and set aside for at least 20mins or while you prepare the Korean Pancakes.
