I was never really much of a chef, but while teaching English in Korea I have slowly started to more and more. Making curry is one of the easiest and delicious foods to cook here in Korea.
First, we need to gather all the spices by going to ten different locations. I’m joking! Everything you need is at your local market!
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Ingredients to Gather:
1/2 Box of Ottogi Curry Base (see picture below)
Favorite meat (beef, chicken, or pork)
Cooked Rice to serve 4-6
First, dice the meat, carrot, potatoes, and onion. Also, get the rice cooking.
Second, bring 6 cups of water to a boil. (You may add more water later if you prefer your curry thinner.)
Third, add the diced carrots first because they take longer to cook. After 5 minutes, add the potatoes and the meat. After another 5 minutes, put in the onions.
*TIP: Poke the carrots and potatoes to see if they’re cooked enough to consume before proceeding to the next step.
Finally, it’s time to add the curry base. Only add half the base inside the box to the boiling pot and start stirring. After, several minutes of stirring, it’s done! Top the curry on your rice and dig in.
*TIP: Add more water to make the curry thinner or cook longer to make it thicker.
Remember, you can be creative and add your own favorite vegetables or whatever to your curry. Don’t blame me if it tastes bad though.
Well, hope this helped and hope you enjoy your curry! What are other easy and delicious plates to cook in Korea?
Yoon escaped from Los Angeles, California after finding himself hating his job at the bank. Knowing of opportunities to teach English in Korea, he took this chance to take on the excitement of living in a foreign country. Thankfully, Aclipseplaced him at a great Chungdahm branch in Jamsil. He is enjoying almost every moment of it and would like to share his experience with you through his blog.
