I had this in a Korean restaurant before and I remembered wondering what was it, what was this jelly texture thing actually is. And now I know, it is actually a green bean jelly that was made of green bean starch and water and then cook until thicken.
I remembered my mom used to make homemade glue for me. Whenever I wanted glue for my school project, I would run to my mom and she would use hot water and this white flour to make glue. I told my girls perhaps I should keep one packet in my pantry so that whenever you girls need glue, I can make some for you. Haha... Why not, it's edible glue and it's all natural!
I served mine with some sweeten soy sauce plus chili oil. Added some chopped green onion as well. I think I could add more water to make this jelly a bit softer as I found it a bit hard. Would be nice if the texture is softer I think.
Recipe courtesy of Aeri's Kitchen. I cut her recipe into half because I was left with that much green bean starch in my pantry. I found it to be a bit hard so I might add more water next time.
1/2 cup green bean starch
3 cups water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 Tbsp. oil
1. In a pot, add in the starch, salt and water. Whisk until combine. Put on a medium hot heat and stir until mixture starts to thicken and becomes transparent.
2. Turn off heat. Quickly add in the oil, mix well and pour into a prepared wet container. Let cool and then transfer to cool in the refrigerator.
3. Slice and serve with your favorite sauce.
