Don't forget chilli peppers to spice up all kimchi....mmmmm...that is why all kimchi is red!
From kimchi you can cook kimchi stew,kimchi fried rice, kimchi pancake and many more...hey even spagetti you know!!!
Do you know that kimchi was introduce to Korea from Japan after the Japanese invasion.
There are white and red kimchi.
There sweet and sour kimchi and some even spicy salty one.
Kimchi is Korea's national dish and we can say this kimchi like akin to pasta in Italy.
This is kimchi storage during old time...but now most of korean household will have dedicated kimchi storage built in their house or apartment.
They even have seasonal kimchi.
