One of my favorite Banchan (side dishes). Danmuji are a bright yellow colored pickled radish, which you can almost always find in Kimbap or served with Chinese food in Korea. Danmuji itself can be bought at Asian grocery markets as well as Gochugaru, the Korean Red Pepper Flakes. This recipe is for preparing it as a side dish at home.

  • 2 tablespoons korean red chili pepper flakes, Gochugaru
