Gamja-ongsimi (감자옹심이) is a variety of sujebi (a dumpling soup) in Korean cuisine, consisting of dumplings made from ground potato and chopped vegetables in a clear broth. It is a local specialty of Gangwon province, South Korea, where a lot of potatoes are cultivated and harvested due to the cold weather. It has a relatively bland taste with a broth usually made from anchovies. The name is a combination of two words; gamja (감자), meaning potato in Korean; and ongsimi (옹심이), the Gangwon dialect term for saeyal (새알), a small ball made of grain flour served in soups or porridge.[1][2]
