Making Kimchi

My local Asian store sells Kimchi by the tubs, it's a small margarine container for $5, don't you think that, that's pretty expensive? Or maybe I am just a cheapskate! I bought it once out of desperation when I couldn't get the ingredients. Today, I had found some ingredients and wanted to make some for myself.

It was hard to get the Korean chilli powder. I had wanted genuine Korean chilli powder, not ones from China peppers or anywhere else. Lucky for me, there was a packet staring back at me and it was a whole 1kg bag. Thank You Lord!!

I'm making this Kimchi from a recipe in SBS Foods. I do like this version because the instructions were pretty easy to follow and it came with a video presentation as well. Plus the recipe is from a Korean person ;) so it's all good, sounds pretty authentic! Getting the right ingredients was the tricky part. I am missing Korean watercress, and Daikon (turnip) but that is not going to stop me from making this today.

Here are some of my photos from my Instagram today. I didn't really planned on this post, hence the lack of photos :) only from my IG feeds. Sorry about that. The recipe is on the SBS link above. Please click on the link to their website if you are interested in making these.
