Kimchi fried rice, kimchi bokkeumbap

This is a simple dish with few ingredients that is much loved by many Koreans, it is more like a risotto than fried rice because it is mushier. After my stay in Korea I have come to appreciate this dish.

1 liter cooked rice
2,5 dl chopped kimchi
1 tbsp vegetable oil
0,5 dl kimchi juice
0,5 dl water
2-3 tablespoons gochujang/chili paste
3 teaspoons sesame oil
100-150 g chopped ham
1 green scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
1 sheet of kim, roasted and shredded


Stir fry kimchi in a pan with a little oil for aboout 1 minute.

Add rice, kimchi juice, water, and gochujang. Stir all the ingredients together for a few minutes.

Add sesame oil and remove from the heat.

Sprinkle with chopped green onion, roasted kim and sesame seeds. Serve right away.
