Kimchi Fried Rice Waffles

This is a quick post before I get back to studying! We are currently learning about how the kidney functions and these organs cannot get anymore interesting...uh naahhtt. The only thing I've learned so far is that I have a drinking problem. As in I drink too much water (please... what else would I drink?). And if you see blood in your pee, it's time you paid a visit to your doctor!

Yay, I'm finally posting about something other than sweets and desserts today! I just have a wicked sweet tooth and probably a lot of cavities :(. I can happily eat ice-cream for dinner, I dream of eating donuts while I'm eating my salad and you'll probably find a muffin stuffed in my bra on any given day.

Soo anyway, I decided to waffle my rice one day, because I think I saw it on my instagram or something. But, waffling makes the rice super crispy on the outside, like that burnt rice you find on the bottom of a hot stone pot (called noo-roong-ji 누룽지). Yum, it's so chewy and fragrant! I just got a waffle maker so I'm excited to use it. Although, my mum is probably going to kill me for buying another kitchen appliance... eek!



Waffle Kimchi Fried rice

makes 2 large waffles

1 cup kimchi chopped into bits (use cabbage kimchi centers and not the leaves)
1/4 cup kimchi juice
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, chopped finely
1/2 jalapeño, chopped finely
1-2 tbsp gochujang/Korean chili paste (according to taste)
3 tsp sesame oil
2-3 cups day-old rice, cold
sesame seed, dried nori, green onion (optional)
fried egg

  1. Fry garlic until fragrant, add onions and jalapeño and let it sweat a little (~2 mins)
  2. Add kimchi and saute until softened (2-3 mins). Add gochujang and mix until homogenous
  3. Add cold rice and break it up thoroughly. Drizzle in kimchi juice
  4. Saute and toss frequently for 5 mins. Adding sesame oil and a handful of chopped green onion at the last minute (you want your rice to be a little more dry than usual - for waffling)
  5. Let it cool or stick it in the fridge for a while (skipping this step is fine but waffles are more to fall apart)
  6. Preheat waffle machine. I don't have fancy one so it is all 1 heat setting. Stuff the machine with more kimchi fried rice waffle "batter" than usual. You will squish it all down and the outside will crisp up. I kept it in my waffle maker for 3-4 minutes.
  7. Enjoy with a fried egg on top!

  3. UGH to the kidney! It's the most boring organ, I think. :P LOVE these kimchi fried rice waffles! The bits that get stuck to the pot are the best...and a whole waffle full of them just sounds SO good.
