Schezuan Kimchi Rice

Posted in

This is  a Korean dish. Koreans are proud of their Kimchi. Kimchi means seasonal pickle, usually made from vegetables. Most famous Kimchi comes from whole cabbage. They soak cabbage in salted water for several hours, and when cabbage softens, they season it with garlic powder, ginger, red chili, white vinegar etc. Primarily, Kimchi is served with sea-food, meat, and/or rice. Basically it's a side dish. It's popularity is growing up, and in India, its more famous with those Chinese food stall on the streets. They make Kimchi with their own twist. You can find Kimchi in any Asian grocery store, usually in packed tins.

I made fresh Kimchi for this dish. Usually, store-bought Kimchi are extra sour, but when you make it fresh, to give that sour taste, I had to use extra white vinegar. The sourness of Kimchi can be controlled by quantity of white vinegar.
