Gamja Jorim 감자 조림 Glazed Potato



Banchan (반찬) are little side dishes served at every Korean meal along with rice and other dishes. They are served in small quantity and can be refilled over the duration of a meal. The quality of the banchan  at a restaurant often is an indication of what you will be getting next. I cooked a Korean meal for the birthday tummy and  a few good banchan were prepared of course. You might be familiar with this popular banchan if you are a regular at Korean eateries, otherwise try this out soon and find out how delicious it is.
P.S I will be posting the rest of the dishes served at the dinner.



makes enough for a meal of 4
you'll need;
4 medium size potato, peeled and cubed
cooking oil
3 tbs of Korean soy
2 tbs of mulyeot (corn syrup)
11/2 tbs of sugar
1 tbs of minced garlic
salt to taste
1 tsp of toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup of water
chooped spring onions to serve



Peel and dice the potatoes into 1.5 cm cubes.



Combine all other ingredients (except cooking oil and sesame seeds) in a bowl.



Heat up a pan and saute the diced potatoes with a little cooking oil. Cook for a few minutes til a little brown and partially cooked.



Add the sauce mix and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.



It is ready when the liquid has reduced to a syrupy consistency.



Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and some chopped spring onions. Serve as part of a Korean meal.
