Korean carrots for winter


Korean carrots can be made in different ways, there are many recipes for cooking. They differ in the composition of the spices, the proportions of the ingredients, the way the oil is processed. If you wish, you can try different recipes and choose the most optimal one for you, because everyone has different tastes. In this article I will write a Korean carrot recipe at home that my family likes most.

By the way, the amount of spices and vinegar can be changed to your liking. Try the finished salad and add the ingredient you are missing. It is always better to first put less, and then bring to taste.

It is interesting! In Korea, there is no such salad, which we have called the Korean carrot. This recipe was invented in the USSR. In the markets, such a carrot was sold by Koreans, which is why it received such a name. It is believed that in Korean carrots it is necessary to put coriander. In store versions, there is always glutamate sodium in the composition (flavor enhancer). It is considered an unhealthy supplement.

The recipe for pickled cabbage with beets is already on my blog. Be sure to check out. Also read the recipe for sauerkraut.

Carrots in Korean, as in the store.

For this recipe you need the following ingredients:

  • carrot - 1 kg
  • garlic - 4 cloves
  • paprika - 1 tsp
  • hot red pepper ground - 1/3 tsp.
  • Coriander - 2 tsp.
  • sugar - 1.5 - 2 tbsp.
  • salt - 0.5 tbsp.
  • refined vegetable oil - 100 ml
  • Vinegar 70% - 0.5 tbsp. (or 3.5 tbsp. 9%)

The method of cooking successful Korean carrots.

1. Carrots for this salad is better to take thick, so it will be more convenient to rub it. Grate need for grated for Korean carrots. If you do not have such a grater, buy. They are sold in all stores of dishes. If made on a coarse grater, the taste of the salad will turn out different and the appearance will not be as presentable.

You can go a more complicated way: cut carrots into slices using a peeler, and then cut these slices into thin strips with a knife. Grate the carrots into a large bowl for easy mixing.

2. When all carrots are grated, put sugar and salt in it. Sugar first, put 1.5 tablespoons, better then add if necessary. Different carrots have a different sweetness, so the amount of sugar in each individual case may vary. And salt the carrots.

3. Use your hands very carefully, without kneading, mix the carrots with sugar and salt. Do it in such a way as if pouring carrots. If the carrot is crushed, it will not be juicy. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolve, that is, their crystals will not be visible on the carrot.

4. It is better to take coriander in grains and independently grind it in a mortar or a coffee grinder. In this case, you will get a completely different flavor, much richer than the finished ground coriander. Try grinding the spices yourself and see a huge difference with the ground spices in the bags.

So chop the coriander in the mortar. Sprinkle carrots on them, and sprinkle them with paprika and hot peppers. Hot peppers need to take to your liking, depending on how sharp the carrots want to get.

Gently mix the carrot with the spices until it becomes a uniform color.

5. Rub the garlic on a fine grater and put in the salad too. Stir. While mixing, do not wrinkle the carrots so that the juice stays inside.

6. Now you need to fill the carrot with oil and vinegar. To make them well mixed, pour in a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Pour some acetic acid into this oil (70%). And pour the resulting dressing orange root. Stir a little and pour in the rest of the oil. Spread the butter all over the salad, you can throw a little carrot.

7. Salad for this recipe can be eaten immediately. After it is well sprinkled with spices, it will already be tasty. It is necessary to pour each time carefully, so that the carrots well absorb all tastes and aromas.

If you want an even richer flavor, fold the carrot into a jar, cover with a lid and let it stand in the refrigerator for several hours. During this time, this Korean salad will marinate very well and it will be very difficult to resist it.

In the process of cooking in carrots in Korean, you can add a little soy sauce. Get a new flavor.

Another way to cook Korean carrot.

I will not now describe in detail the same thing that was written above. Carrots also need to rub. But in this version, spices and butter are not added alternately; carrots are not poured several times.

It is known that all spices reveal their aroma in vegetable oil, especially in hot oil. Therefore, the carrot is first mixed with sugar and salt (as in the previous version). Next, the carrot is filled with a pile of spices: pepper, coriander, paprika, garlic. Vegetable oil should be heated in a frying pan and spiced with hot oil. Then mix everything and add vinegar.

Put this carrot in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours.

This option of cooking Korean carrot is also quite popular. Try both of these options and choose the best one!

Write in the comments how you cook carrots in Korean. And visit my blog more often, there are a lot of interesting things here!

How to cook Korean carrots for the winter

Let's start with the carrot. We clean and wash it, then rinse and dry it once more. Next, the most laborious and traumatic part - the carrot must be rubbed. Ideally, if you have a special grater with a thin or medium square section for this purpose - with it you will get a neat thin and long vegetable straw.

It looks, of course, very appetizing. To make the carrot threads long, you need to rub the carrots flat, stretching along the grater along the entire length. The usual large grater will also fit perfectly, the carrot will not look so impressive with it (in my opinion), but the main thing is to make it tasty, right? And the choice of grater does not affect the taste at all.

As finished with a carrot, peel the onions and chop them into smaller cubes. Here I’ll share with you a recently opened, simple way to avoid cramps in the eyes when grinding an insidious “lacrimal” vegetable: just put cold water in your mouth so that your cheeks swell as much as possible and calmly chop the onions without tears.

Now the last vegetable is next in line - garlic. Everything is quite simple with him. We clean and pass the teeth through the press. In the absence of the press, you can use the smallest float that you can find.

Vegetables are prepared, it remains only to fill them. We put vegetables in one container, we fall asleep sugar.

We fill them with oil.

Regarding seasoning. You can fill the salad with seasoning, but it is better not to experiment and choose a mixture from a trusted manufacturer, the taste of which suits you.

Or collect a mixture of spices to your taste. Try, for example, this option: mix together literally on a pinch of ground red (hot) and black peppers, curry, turmeric, ground coriander and whole (crushed with a knife) and sodium glucomat (if available and if desired). Or a simpler version, also very tasty: 1 tsp. ground black pepper and 2 tbsp. l ground coriander.

Next, mix the vegetables well and, having closed the container, leave the salad to infuse for 8-10 hours or just for the night.

During this time, carrots will infuse, marinate, soak in seasonings and give juice. In principle, it is now fully ready for eating. But our goal is to keep the salad for the winter. Therefore, we prepare jars and lids for it (wash and sterilize), lay out the salad, tamping it tightly, along with the resulting juice.

We cover the jars with salad lids and sterilize them in actively boiling water: for cans up to 500 ml, 10 minutes is enough; for larger cans, we increase the time by 5-10 minutes.

After sterilization, we tighten the jars with lids, turn them upside down with the bottoms and, wrapping them up warmer, leave them for about a day. Store in a cool place to demand. Jars can stand for a long time - up to 10 months, but they are always eaten before!

Chopped garlic, finely chopped onions are sent to a bowl of carrots, as well as ground coriander, black and red peppers. All poured into one place so that all spices are mixed into one spice

Pour vinegar and vegetable oil. Now we need to mix everything thoroughly.

We will cover our bowl and put it in the fridge for a day.

The next day, we sterilize the jars, keep the lids in boiling water for 5 minutes. Spread the contents of the bowl on the banks, evenly distribute the juice, which has identified carrots

For sterilization, put the jars in a large saucepan and boil for 10 minutes, over medium heat from the moment of boiling. Banks are covered with lids, not twisting, but at the bottom of the pan we lay a piece of matter.

So that the banks do not touch the bottom of the pot, otherwise they may burst. Fill with warm water, put the pan on a strong fire

Hot cans roll the key, screw-twist

Check for tightness, close something warm, leave to cool for 12-14 hours

After sterilization, tighten the caps tightly, or roll the key

We turn over the cans to ensure good sealing.

  3. Fruits should not be lethargic, otherwise carrots will be hard to grate and to taste it will not be juicy, tough and not crispy.
  4. At the cut between the root crop and the tops, the carrot should be bright green.
  5. If the vegetables are washed before being sold, they will not be stored for a long time, but such carrots are quite suitable for making salad.

1 kg of carrots (I take a large, massive, you can even slightly more than 1.100 - taking into account the cut tails and skins) 2 tablespoons without a hill of salt (small!) *** 1 onion (optional) 4-5 tablespoons vinegar 0.5 cups unscented sunflower oil 3 tablespoons sugar 0.5 teaspoons black pepper 1 teaspoon sweet paprika 3 tablespoons coriander (ground) 4-5 cloves of garlic

Add the carrot, cut in an appropriate way, into a deep bowl, sprinkle evenly with 2 tablespoons of salt, mix and set aside for 10-15 minutes. At this time, peel the onions and chop them large. In hot oil, fry it and throw it away. Oil is drained. (I sometimes miss the action with onions, in principle, this does not really reflect on the taste.) While the butter is hot, we drain the resulting juice from the carrot (we don’t need it). Squeeze the garlic into a bowl of carrots and sprinkle with coriander. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, pepper and paprika. Pour the hot oil into a glass, add vinegar and mixed spices, then pour the hot mixture into a carrot. Тщательно перемешиваем, наслаждаясь ароматом, и отправляем настаиваться в холодильник на ночь. На следующий день ароматная, пикантная морковка готова!

*** так как многие, кто готовил морковку, жаловались, что она выходит слишком солёной, то показываю, что я использую очень, очень мелкую соль. Если ваша - крупнее, то уменьшайте количество. Carrots should not be salty, salt is needed for the carrot to give juice and soften.
