My good friend J is a half Korean and she always makes homemade kimchi. Mr. Rasa Malaysia and I love kimchi and whenever J brings over her kimchi, I always make kimchi fried rice, which is easily one of the most delicious fried rice recipes ever!
Kimchi fried rice is a popular Korean recipe and it takes practically 15 minutes to make. It calls for a few basic ingredients: kimchi, overnight steamed rice, and egg. The egg is always fried separately and served on top of the kimchi fried rice but most of the time, I just love it plain with just kimchi and rice. It’s delicious as is, mouthwatering and appetizing.
As kimchi is somewhat wet, remember to squeeze the juice out of the kimchi before you make the fried rice. I like my fried rice toasty and somewhat dry, not wet. The reddish color and the pungent kimchi aromas beckon whenever I cook the dish. Dinner will always be good when I have a serving of kimchi fried rice. Serve it with spicy Korean chicken and you have a complete meal.
