Kimchi Bokkeumbap (Kimchi Fried Rice)

Mmmmm..this was the long awaited Kimchi Bokkeumbap or Kimchi Fried Rice that Piggy gal and myself had been waiting for the past one week and we were rewarded ! The homemade kimchi fermented well and the aroma from the kimchi was authentic enough .... we can’t wait to have the kimchi as a side dish that very first day the kimchi was ready :P

We are happy to have our very own homemade kimchi now instead of buying those ready-made one which were very commercialized. Now we know why the Koreans must have kimchi every day. It was addictively good that Piggy gal and myself are looking forward to it every meal time :))) It is very appetizing and after devouring the kimchi fried rice, Piggy gal asked me to make another tub so that we can have kimchi everyday!!! :)) Addictive indeed ^ *

Coming back to the Kimchi Bokkeumbap, it was the best fried rice we have ever eaten so far. It is easy to prepare and is pretty versatile, you can add in any other ingredients you like to the rice, but of course the main ingredient will have to be the kimchi . The kimchi adds flavor to the rice and yessss...every mouthful was yummy alrite!!! . With the tub of homemade kimchi sitting in the fridge , we can now venture into many more Korean dishes ,such as the Kimchi Chigae and Kimchi Jun and many more :))

Every mouthful was kimchi flavored goodness
mmmmmm..yum yum

Kimchi Fried Rice

2 tsp sesame oil
3 shiitake mushrooms (sliced )
1 clove garlic ( chopped)
1 egg ( lightly beaten)
2 cups of cooked rice
10 medium sized shrimps (cooked)
1 cup kimchi ( sliced)
scallions ( diced for garnishing)


Heat the oil in a wok. Add the shiitake mushrooms and saute for a few minutes. Add the garlic and saute for a minute. Add the egg and cook until almost set. Add the rice and shrimps and cook until warm. Turn off the heat and mix in the kimchi. Dish up and garnish with scallions.

Enjoy !
