Kimchi: Fermented cabbage and radish pickle made with Chinese cabbage and some spices. The fermented vegetables along with chilli taste amazing and filled with lip-smacking flavours.

This is the first time I tried making kimchi and totally loved it. In fact, I already finished the two jars that were made recently. I am definitely going to make another batch real soon.

    This is one of those dishes that you either love or hate the very first time you try it. There's no middle ground with this one. Though I've been unable to develop a taste for kimchi, I must say your clicks look very appealing.

  3. I have some Chinese cabbage to finish. Will definitely try this.

  4. Kimchi, i just love the taste, now i want to prepare some jars after going through ur post, fantastic post.

  5. We were at a vietnamese store yesterday and my son saw a jar of Kimbo and asked me what it was and if we can eat it. I can show him this post. I myself have not tasted lunching and this would be a good time to try some.
