Kim Chee

August 19, 2010

Kimchee, gimchi or kimchi... is a Korean traditional side dish.

It is easy to make and Mr H Jr... who does not eat anything 'green' (aka as vegetables) loves kimchee. If we were to buy a tub of 400g of kimchee from Asian grocer, it would set us back by AUD5. And our homemade kimchee, cost us less than AUD2 for 700g to 1 kg... 

A brilliant condiment to go with steam rice, noodles in broth... and just recently we tried kimchee pancake!! Very versatile fermented vegetable indeed! :) 
  •  0.8-1kg chinese cabbage
  • seasalt
  • garlic andd ginger - finely chopped
  • crushed chilli
  • sugar
Wash, clean chinese cabbage then thicky sliced. Add seasalt ... submerge the cabbage (hold down by placing plate on top)....and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Wash off the salt and drain in a colander. Mix the cabbage, chilli, chopped garlic and ginger into a bowl and mix well... Add sugar or salt according to one's preference.
