Korean sweet potatoes are one of the Korean vegetables that I want you to try whether you like normal sweet potatoes or not. They are naturally very sweet, have a nice texture, and are healthy. Among Korean sweet potatoes, there are 2 main kinds. One is a water sweet potato called MulGoGuMa in Korean. It’s soft and mushy texture is pretty similar to the normal sweet potatoes that you find in America. It is just a lot sweeter and has good sweet potato flavor in it. The other type is chestnut sweet potato called BamGoGuMa in Korean. This one is also very sweet and has good sweet potato flavor. The only difference is that it’s texture is firm and not mushy like mulgoguma. It’s texture is a little similar to chestnuts, so it must have gotten the name because of that. Anyway, both kinds are good to try, but I especially love bamgoguma and that is the one we will use for today’s recipe. Instead of making the same old cheese sticks, make this upgraded version of it with tasty Korean sweet potato paste.
