- Add water and dried anchovies to a Korean clay pot or a sauce pan. Bring this to a boil, skim off impurities that float to the top. Reduce heat and simmer the stock for about 10-12 mins. Discard the anchovies and add more water if stock has reduced considerably during cooking.
- Add the potatoes and cook at a simmer until the potatoes have softened. Add onions,garlic and soy bean paste into the pot and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 mins and add in the rest of the ingredients except chilli powder. Simmer the soup until the zucchini have slightly softened.
- Sprinkle in chilli powder (if using) at the end of cooking. Jjigae should be served bubbling hot in the clay pot.
- Your Doenjang jjigae is ready!
