made in MyKitchen | kkomak muchim / Korean seasoned cockles

i made a batch of this banchan yesterday.. see, the Korean dining concept suits our (hubs and myself) current lifestyle at the moment.. hubs is often outstation for work, and i follow him sometimes and sometimes i choose to stay at home.. whenever he’s not around and i’m dining alone, having several types of banchan in the fridge makes everything a whole lot easier.. i can just cook a big batch of rice to last several days and have it with ready made side dishes.. a quick reheating in the microwave oven is all it takes to produce a warm dinner for one..

one of my favorite banchan at the moment is kkomak muchim, a seasoned cockles dish that i learned through another blog.. i forgot which, as i came upon it quite some time ago.. will update as soon as i can find it..

anyway, this dish is not really for everyone, as it’s a cold dish, and there are people out there that may not like cold, seasoned cockles.. so, try the recipe out if you wish.. though don’t expect too much from it.. it’s meant as a side dish, and should be enjoyed as such, along with other side dishes..
