Original recipe of Korean carrots
Cooked on this recipe appetizer morewill be like the original. Of course, we will not be able to recreate the Korean snack precisely - yet the national cuisine in the Russian realities acquires a somewhat different shade. However, this recipe and the very procedure of preparation is as close as possible to the original recipe for snacks. Ingredients:
- fresh carrots - 1 kg;
- garlic - 4 slices;
- vinegar 9% - 3 tbsp. l .;
- soybean oil - 5 items;
- paprika - 1 tsp;
- salt - 2 tbsp. l .;
- onion - half of the head.
Preparation: The recipe is traditional. First, carrots are peeled and shredded with very thin and narrow straws. It is best, of course, to use a special grater for a Korean carrot - then it will turn out to be long and thin, like spaghetti. Now shredded carrots put in a bowl, mixed with salt and leave under the oppression for about 10 minutes. During this time, the carrot will let out the juice, which we need to drain with the extra salt. Next, throw the carrots into a colander and rinse it in cold running water, after which we squeeze it well. Press the carrot into an enamel or glass bowl and add crushed garlic to it. Garlic can be very finely chopped or passed through a garlic press. Fill carrot with garlic vinegar and mix well. We leave the carrots soaked with garlic spirit and taste, while in the meantime we shred the onions finely and prepare the marinade. To do this, pour soybean oil into a thick-bottomed frying pan (it can be replaced by olive oil) and put on a strong fire. When the oil is hot, put red pepper into it, reduce the heat and continue to fry for a minute. During this time, hot pepper will lose its burning sensation, and oil will acquire a flavor and taste that is specific for this snack. After this, put the chopped onion into butter and fry it for about 4 minutes. When the onions become golden, we filter the oil - the onions are not included in the carrot in Korean, so it is not necessary to put it into a snack. Oil poured into a bowl with carrots, mix everything well and cover the bowl with a lid. We leave the snack insisted for 24 hours. But now we are shooting the sample and enjoying the taste of this exotic but already so familiar for us snack!

In the meantime, rub a fresh cucumber on a grater for a Korean carrot, add it to a bowl with carrots and mix everything. In the same bowl, put the fried onion together with the vegetable oil, mix again and leave to marinate for about 3 hours. After 3 hours, mix the snack with the chopped parsley, cool and shoot the sample! Note: The oil for frying onions should be taken only refined, without taste and smell.

All these seasonings should be dried - in the form of a powder. They need to be mixed in equal proportions, and now we have a special seasoning for the Korean carrots! So, the recipe itself.

All the mix well and leave to marinate for about half an hour. During this time, we need to fry the remaining onion on the vegetable oil until light brown.
