simple Korean egg roll
Korean Egg Roll (Gyeran Mari) is a very easy and simple side dish that is a favorite in lunchboxes. It is wonderfully soft, fluffy, savory and mild, tasting very similar to an omelet but a little firmer and chewier. And the addition of green onions makes it a perfect banchan in a Korean meal. All in less than 20 minutes!
