BENGALURU: I got an opportunity earlier this month to visit J W Marriott Seoul, South Korea, to handle a couple of  high profile Indian sit -down dinners.

It was during this stay over there, I came across, Gochujang, a fundamental Korean spice which is used across an array of dishes like bibimbap, spicy rice cake, pork or chicken bulgogi.

It is a fermented hot-pepper paste made from red chilies, glutinous rice and fermented soybeans with salt. It has its own unique taste and texture. It is also used to make a dipping sauce like “ssamjang” for lettuce wrap.
I have come back and incorporated Gochujang in my appetizer dish, as part of the dressing, which beautifully blends with the rest of the flavours.
