Make the mother sauce first by blending 1 yellow pear, 1 medium onion, 40g peeled garlic, 2 stalks leek, 180ml light soy sauce, 1/4 honey and 1 tsp black pepper into a saucy paste. Store in a glass jar and refrigerate for 1 day.

Steam 16 peeled chestnuts for around 45 minutes until they are soft enough to be mashed. Use a spoon to mash the chestnuts into a sieve to get chestnut powder.

Jeonbokjuk Recipe - Korean Abalone Porridge From Jeju Island

Jeonbokjuk, or Korean abalone porridge is one of the most delicious and comforting porridge that there is.

Soak 1/2 rice cup of glutinous rice in 4 rice cups of water for 1 hour. After an hour, strain the rice and retain the rice water. 

If you prefer to have a thicker consistency, simply reduce the amount of rice water used to 2 or 3 cups instead. We prefer our Jeonbokjuk to be more broth like and not too starchy.
