Heugimja-juk (흑임자죽; 黑荏子粥) or black sesame porridge is a juk (porridge) made from finely ground black sesame and rice.[2][3] The bittersweet, nutty porridge is good for recovering patients, as black sesame seeds are rich in digestive enzymes that help with healthy liver and kidney functions.[3]


Preparation of heugimja-juk starts with washing, soaking, and draining black sesame and rice separately.[4] Black sesame seeds are then toasted over low heat, and mixed with rice and water, to be ground in a millstone or a blender.[4] The ground mixture is sifted, and simmered.[4]
