Just yummy Korean food this time. Kimchi fried rice. Like Kentuky Fried Chicken, only different. 😀 For delicious fried kimchi rice, I want to tell you several things. First, good kimchi makes yummy fried kimchi rice. Well fermanted kichi is the best. Another thing is..Frying the kimchi first is important – don’t cheat. 😛 I prefer to fry my rice a little crispy which takes longer to cook. (patience … hehe) You can add more sugar or salt depending on your taste.
Yield: 2 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- SikDahng (식당) = Restaurant
- EumSik (음식) = Food
- 2 Cups Cooked Rice
- 1 Cup Kimchi
- 2 tsp Sugar
- ½ tsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Kimchi Liquid
- 1 Tbsp Cooking Oil
- ½ tsp Sesame Oil
- 2 Eggs
- Some Sesame Seeds (to garnish)
Cut 1 cup of kimchi to bite sized pieces.
Add about ½ Tbsp of cooking oil in the heated pan and fry the kimchi. Add 2 tsp of sugar and fry for about 5 minutes on medium-high.
Add 2 cups of cooked rice and ½ tsp of salt. Add 2 Tbsp of kimchi liquid and ½ Tbsp of cooking oil. Fry 10 more minutes.
When the rice gets enough kimchi flavor, add ½ tsp of sesame oil. Then fry 2 more minutes.
Fry eggs separately. (Add salt to taste) You can also fry them in the rice. If you want to fry the egg in the rice, break the eggs in a bowl and stir as you do for scramble eggs. Pour the egg in the fried rice and stir. When the eggs are cooked, its’ done.
Place the fried eggs on the plate, and put the rice on top of the eggs.
