Made kimchi with mum and bro a few days ago which we finally got to taste it today!
How much it cost:
Basics: Cabbage + radish + scallions
Paste: Garlic + ginger + red chili powder + salt + fish sauce (optional, but more fragrant if you add it)
Share why you decided to cook that dish(es)
Because Mum and I are korean-food addicts, or I should say we have an undying love for kimchi! And CB has forbidden us to visit those restaurants which serve unlimited kimchi....hence homemade it is then.
A perfect dish that goes well with anything, you can even make a stew / soup / pancake / fried rice with it. Go wild with your creativity!
A useful cooking tip you have:
P/S: Making kimchi wasn't as difficult as I thought it is. Also a good way to bond with your fam / partner when the kitchen starts to get messy, stinky and filled with loads of fun! :)

It was surprisingly quite easy and fast to make! It took the 3 of us around an hour to make it from scratch, but of course the more helping hands you get, the faster it will be. Next is to just store it under room temperature for 2-3 days before you can savour every bits of it :)
What I made?
Kimchi Jjigae! (Serves ~ 6pax)
How much it costs to prepare the meal: ~ $17
1 Onion, garlic, 1/4 radish, 1/2 cabbage/wongbok, 1/2 an anchovies cube stock 1 pack enoki mushroom, tofu (approx $5)
Gochuchang ($5.90 for 1 box. I used about 1 1/2 Table spoon)
Share why you decided to cook this dish
Don't be fooled by the seemingly hard Korean dish, Kimchi Jigae is actually a super easy to make one-pot dish that can even be switched up with more or less ingredients according to your taste! Staying at home made my brother and I experiment with less-boring dishes too -- YouTube videos from "Wife's Cuisine" & "Maangchi" really inspired us!
Making a big pot also means that you can keep it for 2 meals. What my family did was we made steamed rice to go with this for lunch, and we're going to throw in 2 packets of instant noodles and some cheese for dinner!
Useful cooking tips!
For stews like these, just cook more and have it for two meals!
If you have a pressure cooker at home, throw in: pork (unsliced), garlic, leek, anchovies/anchovie stock cubes. This makes your pork ultra soft and makes for an amazing broth! Add this in to boil with the rest of the ingredients after :)
So I made a fusion dish - "Salted Fried Chicken Cutlet Oyako Don"!
