Quick and Easy: Danmuji Muchim (Korean Pickled Radish Side Dish)

Updated: Jun 8, 2023

Danmuji Muchim (Korean pickled radish with seasoning) is an easy and versatile dish to make.

It can be used as a substitute for Kimchi or paired with other side dishes.

It goes well with meat dishes, spaghetti, pasta, or even instant noodles.

Preparing it doesn't take long and it can be enjoyed for a period of time once made!

단무지 Dan-mu-ji is a yellow pickled radish and it can be easily purchased at Asian/ Korean grocery stores.

I used a package with three radishes and scaled the ingredients accordingly. If only one radish is used, reduce the chili powder and sesame oil to 1 TSP each.
