Korean Style Mashed Potato Salad (Gamja-Salad)

Korean-Style-Gamja-Mashed-Potato-Salad_cover

My favorite side dish at Korean restaurants has got to be the sweet, creamy, mashed potato with a hint of crunch. I never get enough of it and even though most restaurants allow refills, it’s too embarrassing to ask for multiple refills, no? =P Heh heh. I don’t know why, but one day I decided to make my own Gamja-Salad. According to Maangchi, Korean style mashed potato salad is kind of a new term, hence the name which incorporates a mix of Korean (gamja = potato) and English (salad).

The ingredients are basic and can be found in most homes. So why not try making it yourself! It’s super easy and requires absolutely no skill. Heehee.

Ingredients

  • 3 medium sized potatoes, around 400g
  • 3 eggs – hard boiled, yolks and white separated
  • 1 carrot – chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • dash of white ground pepper
  • salt to taste
