Kimchi Fried Rice with Woojeon Egg Wrap
Have you tried making Kimchi Fried Rice with Barley Sprout that we introduced before? (Please click here to see the recipe.)
Here, we are introducing another Kimchi Fried Rice recipe you can use Woojeon leaves for.
Ingredients (1 serving):
· 3g or 1 heaping tablespoon Woojeon
· 1 bowl or 100g cooked rice (short grain rice or sushi rice recommended)
· 2/3 cup Kimchi, chopped (Note: Do not throw out the Kimchi juice after chopping.)
· 1/8 onion, chopped
· 2-3 eggs
· 4 tablespoons cooking oil of your choice
· 1 tablespoon oligodang (Korean cooking syrup) or sugar
· 1 tablespoon sesame oil
· 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
· (optional) 1/3 zucchini, chopped
· (optional) 1 tablespoon cooked corn or canned corn, drained
· (optional) 1 tablespoon mushrooms, chopped
1) Make Woojeon tea. (Please click here to see the steeping instructions.) Strain the tea leaves and set aside. You can drink the tea infusion before or after cooking.
2) Add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a frying pan or a wok, and stir fry chopped Kimchi at medium heat.
3) Add oligodang or sugar.
4) Add chopped onion and stir fry again. (Optional: You can add chopped zucchini, chopped mushrooms and cooked corn. In Korea, people also like adding chopped ham or drained canned tuna).
5) Add cooked rice and stir fry at low heat.
6) Add Kimchi juice and stir fry again. (Note: If you add too much juice, the fried rice will be too wet).
7) Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the steeped Woojeon leaves. Mix well.
8) Add oil into another frying pan and warm up the pan at medium heat.
9) Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan, and spread it evenly all over the pan.
10) When the egg mixture is almost cooked (Note: Do not flip it over to cook the other side, or the egg wrap might break in half), add the Kimchi Fried Rice onto one side covering half of the egg. Reduce the heat to low and wait for 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.
11) Fold the empty side of the egg over the top of the rice, making a half moon.
12) Push and slide the egg wrapped rice onto a plate.
