Selam everybody....Merhaba from Turkey...
If somebody ask me, which one do I prefer, Korean Drama or Korean food? spontaneously my answer would be korean food...
yeeaahh...I know...sorry for Korean drama's lover over there... And don't ask me further question: WHY? my answer will break your heart ^,^
I like Korean food in moderate way, I like it cause some (some-not all) Korean food are acceptable by my asian tongue. Kimchi is my favorite one. I make kimchi once or twice in a year when I saw napa cabbage at local farmer market--even some friends of mine ordered Kimchi from me, they like my homemade Kimchi ^,^. Thank you girls!
And my today's post is another simple, healthy yet scrumptious side dish. You can make it maybe in 5 minutes only with all ingredients ready in your pantry ^,^
It call Oi-muchim or spicy cucumber.
So no more chit-chat from me here you go oi-muchim recipe.
Recipe by Maangchi ,recook by me
Ingredients (Serves 4)
- 1 English cucumber (or 2 to 3 kirby cucumbers), washed
- ¼ cup thinly sliced onion
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce (I use dark soy sauce-next time I use light one)
- 2 teaspoons hot pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon sugar, it said optional but I used it, it'll kick the oi-muchim!
Halved cucumber lengthwise then thinly slice. Place those sliced cucumber into a medium bowl, add all spices ingredients, toss them to combine. Serve immediately as side dish.
Just like that! simple isn't it? Have a try, you gonna love it ^,^
Happy cooking everyone.
