Heugimja-juk (흑임자죽; 黑荏子粥) or black sesame porridge is a juk (porridge) made from finely ground black sesame and rice.[1][2] 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.[2]


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