Mung-bean Jelly, Korean National Dish


Pyongyang, February 4 (KCNA) -- Jelly is one of the national dishes favored by the Korean people.

In this regard, Dr. and Associate Professor Kim Ji Won, section chief of the Folklore Institute under the Academy of Social Sciences of the DPRK, told KCNA:

From olden times Koreans have made various kinds of jelly dishes with such materials as buckwheat, mung-bean and acorn-starch. Typical is mung-bean jelly.

It can be proved by historical records.

"Rimwonsipryukji", published in 1825, wrote that mung-bean jelly mixed with herbs and soy sauce is very tasty.
