Korean Kimchi salad

Once I had attended an International food festival in Bangalore. The Korean food stall caught my attention. Of course the very first thing was girls at the Korean counter. 😉 They were wearing their traditional Korean dress and looking really very pretty. And another reason was food!

Their food is simple but yet having a special flavor, color and texture to it. I tried the Kimchi salad there for the first time and since that day I wanted to try making it in my kitchen. And finally I did it.

Recipe is given below:

Method:

Chop the cabbage into shreds and wash it thoroughly.

In a bowl, put the shredded cabbage and add salt to it.

Mix the salt with cabbage and leave it aside for around 1 hour.

After one hour, wash the cabbage under the running tap water and drain using a colander.

Now in a bowl prepare the sauce. Add vinegar, dark soya sauce, salt, sugar, chili sauce, minced garlic, red chili flakes, and sesame seeds. Mix everything properly.

Now add the cabbage into the sauce and mix it well.

Fill the salad in an air tight jar and leave it outside for a day.

After one day, you can keep the salad jar in the fridge.

Use this salad whenever you want to have sticky rice or boiled noodles without using any curry.

I can guarantee it would tastes amazing!

Method:

Beat the eggs with the help of fork add pinch of salt.

Chop the tomato finely and remove the seeds. Removing seeds helps to make the omelette batter not to become watery.

Finely chop the green chili

Now heat a thick bottom pan and add oil or butter once the pan is heated.

Saute chopped tomato and green chili with a pinch of salt in the pan for a minute, take it out and keep it aside.

Now in the same pan, add the egg batter and reduce the flame of gas.

Let it cook for half a minute when you see it is getting fried from the sides and in the center it is set, add the sauted tomato on the omelette and fold it. After few seconds, serve the omelette in a plate and garnish it with fresh coriander leaves.
