Kimchi Fried Rice, Kimchi Kimbap and Hawker Style Shrimp Balls
As much as I love Mexican, Italian, American, and of course, Filipino dishes, I also fully embrace the dishes of other Asian countries such as Korea and fusion flavours of Singaporean food. And what I love most about Asian food is that it can be the cheapest to make, but really, the tastiest and with the most bold flavours.
I particularly love hawker food, mostly snacks in bite-size morsels jam-packed with savoury goodness either eaten on its own or dipped in a sauce, served on a stick -skewered in a row or picked up with a pair of chopsticks.
And although what I share with you all are recipes clearly not at all traditional and really kind of veered away from authenticity. I assure you all that these recipes are as equally enjoyable to munch on as those proper dishes that I borrowed from.
KIMCHI FRIED RICE
2 tablespoons canola oil
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup kimchi, chopped
4 cups cooked white rice
7 grams chicken stock powder (can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoon of chicken stock concentrate)
2 teaspoons sushi and sashimi soy sauce (or light soy sauce)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
In a large pan or wok on medium-high heat, saute chopped garlic in canola oil for 10 seconds. Add kimchi and saute for another 10 seconds.
Add the cooked rice making sure to break the lumps. Season the rice with chicken stock powder, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and cracked black pepper.
Toss and cook fried rice for 10 minutes, then turn off heat and immediately pour the beaten eggs over rice, stir and toss. Serve hot with shredded nori and thinly sliced omelette.
