I’m going to introduce another side dish recipe to you. Cheongpomuk-muchim is made with mung bean starch. It’s sugar-free and fat-free but delicious. What’s the taste like? Hmmm, if you like noodles, you’ll like it. As you see in the video tutorial, I add 1 teaspoon of salt for 7 cups water and the starch powder, so it’s not bland. But nobody serves it by itself. You’ll need sauce for it.
Even though I didn’t use any hot pepper flakes for this recipe, you can add some if you want.
If you’re not satisfied with little dish of this that you usually get at a Korean restaurant, you’ll be very happy to see this recipe! In this video I’m making huge amount of mung bean jelly with only 1 cup of starch powder. You can take it to your potluck party (4 cups of mung bean jelly makes a huge plate), or serve the small plate as an appetizer.
I’m showing you 3 different ways to serve it, using 3 different plates: a large portion for a party and small portions for appetizers or side dish.
You want to make it with a half cup of starch powder? Then all ingredients are half! Easy!

Q: Maangchi! How long can I keep the mung bean jelly in the refrigerator?
A: You can keep it in the refrigerator up to 4-6 days!
Q: Maaangchi, omg, the mung bean jelly that I made a couple of days ago has shrunk and the color looks milky.
What shall I do, what shall I do?
A: Haha, don’t panic! : ) Boil some water in a pot and dump your milky jelly into the boiling water. Cook for a couple of minutes until it looks translucent again. It’s more tasty than freshly made mung bean jelly in my experience!
Q: Maangchi, I don’t have seaweed now. Will it be still delicious without it?
A: No, seaweed flakes are very essential to this dish. The flavor of roasted seaweed and the sauce and mung bean jelly really go with each other.
Q: I don’t have shredded red pepper. Can I skip it?
A: Yes, you can! Forget about the damn shredded red pepper! : )
