For as long as I can remember, my mom has made this for all the special days like birthdays, holidays, and dinner parties. I've always loved them and am now making them for my own family. This is a side dish made for banquet/special event tables. It is usually served along with other Korean dishes, and in that way eaten as a side dish, or it is served alone as an appetizer. You can of course just eat it w/rice for dinner. It can be eaten at any time. I'll add step by step pictures!
