A spicy dipping sauce for Korean dumplings, scallion pancakes, and tempura. A twist on the basic soy sauce and vinegar version, this adds a lot or a little spice to your meal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp chili pepper flakes (kochukaru)
  • 1 Tbsp scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic


Mix all ingredients together and use as a dipping sauce for dumplings, scallion pancakes, mung bean pancakes, and tempura dishes.

*Can make in large batches and store in refrigerator for a couple weeks.

**If you don't have Korean chili pepper flakes (kochukaru), you can use cayenne pepper or sriracha sauce in the mix.
