I had a little bit of the cauliflower kimchi leftover and this kimchi is not meant to be kept for a long time, unlike the regular napa cabbage kimchi.
At the same time, I had some rice in the freezer. I took the frozen rice to defrost overnight in the fridge. As for the cauliflower kimchi, I took the container out to stand at room temperature overnight (to ferment because I did not allow it to do so after it was freshly made) and added some of the regular kimchi to it.
For the fried rice, besides kimchi, I used bacon. Yum! It is quite a simple process - saute the diced bacon until lightly browned, add some chopped onions and once the onions are soft, add kimchi and continue to cook until the kimchi is soft.
Add a little bit of kimchi juice for moisture and in goes the rice. Stir fry until rice is combined with the kimchi. Then add some light soy sauce for seasoning. Once the rice is well mixed and heated through, it's done!
Nice or not? What? No, thank you? heh..heh... To each his own!
I am really enjoying kimchi!
drooling over ur kimchi fried rice!!!ReplyDelete
I still have a bottle of cabbage kimchi in the fridge... one day I am going to fry rice with kimchi, never tried frying with rice before...ReplyDelete
Try it, very nice. Or make kimchi stew with pork belly hee..hee..Delete
Bravo! Bravo!!! Standing ovation!!! Eggs-cellent! Love the golden fringe! I'll have those - you can eat the rice. LOL!!!ReplyDelete
I see you're on the "kimchi trail" again...hehehe! ;) I've never food prep fried eggs (whole) before...is that to be kept in the fridge or the freezer? I can't imagine keeping fried eggs frozen coz when they're defrosted (and reheated), wouldn't they go all rubbery? If yes, I think I'd rather go through the hassle of frying an egg to top onto my reheated fried rice...kekeke! :D P/S: I'm imagining this to be sambal fried rice! ^_~ReplyDelete
I wanted to make another batch of kimchi today but luckily I changed my mind. I would have been very frustrated due to the water cut! The fried egg was kept in the fridge for one day. I ate one portion on the same day and kept the other for the next day. Oh ya, frozen eggs are like rubber, I experimented once with hard boiled egg. Honestly, sambal fried rice is nicer hee..hee...Delete
you're 10% on the way to compiling a kimchi cookbook! :D by the time you're done, you'll have converted all of us into the cult of kimchi :DReplyDelete
Oh..hah..hah... I am actually thinking of what else to kimchi and what dishes can be made with kimchi. Perhaps a fusion with local food. It should be interesting.Delete
Tasted kim chi fried rice once, many years ago. Taste wasn't bad, milder and bearable to me.ReplyDelete
I have eaten 3 times at the restaurant and I liked it.Delete
Been ages since I last had Korean food.ReplyDelete
Now you made me crave for some!
hee...hee... go and eat. I had another round of Korean at the restaurant yesterday.Delete
This is so very delicious! I love to eat kimchi fried rice! You are tempting me to go tapao kimchi fried rice but I know those that I tapao won't be as tasty as your kimchi fried rice. So sad that you don't sell any.ReplyDelete
The kimchi fried rice at Kyochon is good.Delete
Your kimchi fried rice looks tastier than those served outside, looks like you are still hooked on korean food, lol. I read about the news of KL water cut in facebook, it must have been so inconvenient for you all. Does it happen frequently?ReplyDelete
Thank you...thank you...LOL! I love Korean food. Water has been restored to my housing area buy my office still no water :(Delete
