Another Korean dish that is super easy to make are Korean pancakes or pajun (pajeun), which can be filled with mixed vegetables, green olives or seafood.  They are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, served with soy sauce and sesame seeds and kids love them. The Ottoga Korean Pancake Mix at TANG makes it even easier.
