Fried chicken's best friend
Oh, we Koreans looooove fried chicken. We also love Korean radish pickles that come along with our fried chickens. Funny thing is that it's called Chikinmoo in Korean. It has nothing to do with Chick-Fil-A commercials, though. Literally, chikin = (fried) chicken, moo = radish.
Here's how I make them at home.
You'll need: white radish, sugar, vinegar, water, and salt.
Peel the radish and cut it into little cubes.
Throw them in the water mixed with vinegar and sugar. I don't really know the exact ratio. It should taste kinda sweet and kinda sour at the same time. Just go with your preference. Add a little salt.
You may also add a few slices of lemon. Put a lid on and leave it at room temperature overnight. Store them in your fridge before serving as a side dish for fried chicken.
