Doragi Namul(Seasoned Balloon flower/Korean Bellflower)

도라지나물
A side dish of bellflower roots cooked in water, drained, then sauteed with chopped green onions, garlic, and sesame salt.
Doragi is the root of the Chinese Bellflower (Platycodon grandiflorus) plant, and is a delicious addition to Korean and other Asian meals. The flavor has been compared by some to a very mild celery with earthy undertones.
Doragi Namul can be served as part of a banchan array, or used as a component in BiBimBap
