Jeon (also spelled chÅn), buchimgae, jijimgae, or jijim refer to many pancake-like dishes in Korean cuisine. It has been also called jeonyueo or jeonyuhwa, especially in Korean royal court cuisine. Sometimes, jeonya (Hangul: ì €ëƒ) is used as an abbreviated term for the two. Jeon is made with various ingredients such as sliced meats, poultry, seafood, and vegetables depending on the style and mixed with flour batter or coated with egg batter and then pan-fried with oil. Jeon is commonly eaten as an appetizer, as banchan (small side dishes), or as anju (food to eat while drinking).
