I do not know how would you call this recipe, but in Ukraine, we call it Korean carrots, on our markets Korean women sell it and I love this.
Korean-style carrots are juicy, nutritious, and delicious. Such a carrot is also useful, because, due to its pungency, it improves digestion.
You can also use it for making salads, rolls, pies. Korean carrots go well with meat dishes, boiled potatoes, and pasta. Normally, should be used another grater, but, unfortunately, I do not have it, so I used a regular one.
