      This is more like an appetizer or late night snack. I would say good for 2 people, but it won’t fill them up 🙂

    it taste good.. I already try it.. but somehow 1tb of salt is too salty for me.. but maybe it’s depend on the kimchi itself..

      I never used milk for kimchi jeon, but my guess is to soften the spiciness of Kimchi.
