Another basic but very important side dish is Gaji Namul - Korean eggplant. Namul meaning seasoned vegetable dish. Your local Asian food market will carry the variety needed for this recipe. Remember, this is the longer slender shaped eggplant.
I've always enjoyed the spicy and sesame seed/oil flavor it imparts along with the slight crunch of the steamed eggplant. Learn more about Maangchi's recipes in her books and DVD's.
