The Korean pickled radish side-dish DanMuJi MuChim is a simple daily side dish that you can make in just few minutes. DanMuJi is used in kimbap. It is a sweet and sour pickled radish. Since it already has a sweet, sour, and salty flavor, you don’t need many seasonings for this dish: just some spiciness from red pepper powder and the unique flavor of sesame oil. You can also eat the pickled radish without any other seasonings with jajangmyun, jjambbong, or kimbap.
Yield: 1½ Cups
