Spicy Cucumber Side Dish - Oi-muchim 오이무침


























I love banchan - korean side dishes , simply because they are appetizing, healthy and delicious.  I have been visiting Maangchi.com for some ideas how to make appetizing banchan and I am happy I found a few that really inspires me to make them.  I have tried her spicy stuffed cucumber , it turned out to be a keeper :)  Now , this is the second cucumber side dish that I had tried out and it was absolutely tasty and every mouthful you can hear the crunch sound as you bite into the cucumber.

Easy to whip out and it is a great side dish to serve your guests.  Lovely side dish  to go with the smoked chicken and BBQ meat too.  Take note that it is best to make it and mix it just before serving so that the cucumber will remains crispy and fresh and preventing it from getting watery.

    1. Mrs.Singh...I bought the chilli flakes from Jusco...SpringFood brand RM2.70 thereabouts..from the dried ingredients section. They also have the Korean Chilli Flakes but too expensive:)
