Moosam (Pickled Daikon Radish)

Moosam is a dish made from thinly sliced daikon radish.  It is simple to make and can be prepared anywhere from a few hours to a few days ahead of serving.  Although this dish can be served with rice at any meal, it is commonly served with Samgyupsal.

Moosam (Pickled Daikon Radish)

3 inch piece of daikon radish
2 T  sugar
2 T rice vinegar
4 T water

  1. Using a mandoline, slice the radish into paper thin slices.  If using a knife, slice the radish as thin as possible.  Try to keep the radish slices in a neat stack.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, vinegar and water.
  3. Place the sliced radish in a bowl.
  4. Pour the sugar mixture over the radish.  The radish should be covered by the liquid.  If it is not, mix another batch of liquid and add it to the bowl. 
  5. Allow this mixture to stand at room temperature for 2 hours.
  6. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for another hour or until serving.
  7. The radish is good for one to two weeks.
