    Korean watercress is called Minari. Link to info: http://www.maangchi.com/ingredients/water-dropwort

    Amercain watercress is close but not the same. If you can get the real thing I recomend using the real thing. My wife will not use the American kind but I do some Koreans that use it is some dishes.

    Agujjim is a dish that I would only use Minari.

    Which book did you get? I have “Good Morning Kimchi” and love it.

    Now if I could just get some Minari seeds!

    The book is called KIMCHI A KOREAN HEALTH FOOD by Florence C. Lee and Helen C. Lee. It a wonderful cookbook that is available on Amazon.

    If I can’t fing Korean Watercress is there a close American sustitute?

    After looking at the index I have added that book to my wish list for my next Amazon order.

    I think that the American watercress is about as close as you will get. But I would take off the leaves and only use the stems.

    Perhaps M can give some more insite.
