Bibimbap including hwangpomuk (bottom left)
Hwangpomuk (also called norangmuk, 노랑묵) is a Korean food which is a yellow jelly made from mung beans. The yellow color comes from dyeing with the fruit of gardenia. This jelly is particularly associated with Jeolla cuisine, and is a noted staple food of Namwon and also Jeonju (both cities in the North Jeolla province), where it is a common ingredient of Jeonju-style bibimbap.
As with other varieties of muk (Korean jelly), hwangpomuk is commonly served in small chunks seasoned with vinegar, soy sauce, and other condiments; this side dish is called hwangpomuk-muchim (황포묵무침).
