Hobak Jeon (Zucchini Fritter)

In fact, Jeon (Korean fritter or pancake) reminds many Koreans of special occasions such as Chusuk (Korean Harvest Celebration).  In the holiday morning, you wake up with this smell of frying fish, vegetable or meat in many different shape and see mom cooking by the table stacked with many jeons on the table for our relatives coming. In my early age, I used to complain about old same Dongtae(Cod) jeon or zucchini jeon because I wanted to eat pizza or burger. Well, you complain about almost everything in teenage years, right?

Now, I literally live thousands of miles away from mom. I miss plain piece of zucchini jeon my mom used to make more than I ever imagined.  Simple but warm enough.
