Clumsy girl cooks

It has been toooo freaking long since I last posted. I know, am really indecisive. I think indecisive is my middle name. Sometimes I feel like blogging, sometimes I don’t, so starting today onwards, I’ll blog whenever I feel like I want to so no pressure over thur!

So, hello dear readers, it’s me again. Turning twenty in June this year and boyy, a lot has happened. My family has expanded (and by that I meant my kids. Whoops, I mean cats), I’ve moved houses, I’m in my 2nd year of degree, and not to forget, I’ve grown fatter. Jokes on me. Isn’t it already obvious just by looking at my title for today? Cooking slash baking slash whatever that is related to oven and stoves and not to mention a lot of dishes to wash after cooking, is currently my new hobby which I have been doing for the past months. I haven’t been actually cooking nor baking a lot, but there are times where I really do enjoy making food. Food is bae, guys. It can never disappoint you. Although it probably would, only if you let it. *smirks*

This blog will soon be filled with lots recipes and how to make them and also, book recommendations and most probably holiday recommendations? We’ll see. Imma take things slow and steady, alright?

So today I’ve made Kimchi Fried Rice. This is inspired by the one and only, Nik Adreana, my childhood friend, my best friend, my soulmate, my cooking mate, my Uni buddy, my ride or die buddy.

So here are a few photographs of today’s dish! It really is so very simple. I think it took me just 15-20 minutes to get it done!

The ingredients you will need: Beef cubes, onions, garlic, kimchi, salt, sweet sauce, and of course, rice (it could be white rice or brown rice, everything is entirely up to you). Oh and this is a serving for one to two person.

How to make it? Follow these few steps!

  1. Make sure you have your rice ready.
  2. Heat your oil and cook your beef cubes. While waiting for it to cook, cut your garlic and onions. As for me, I certainly am a fond of onions, so I cut 3 onions and just 1 garlic.
  3. After you have cooked your beef, take it (the cooked meat) out from the kuali and set it aside for a moment.
  4. Next, put in your chopped onions and garlic and just a pinch of salt.
  5. Put in 2 big spoons of kimchi.
  6. A teaspoon of sweet sauce to give it a sweet taste.
  7. Pour 1/4 of water to make the kimchi sauce. Let it cook for at least 3 minutes or so. Make sure that the kimchi isn’t too dry, if it is too dry, add another 1/4 of water.
  8. Put in back your cooked protein (beef or chicken or even shrimp, it’s up to you)
  9. Lastly, put your rice in!
  10. TA-DAA!

As all of you know, koreans like to put cheese on their ramen and fried rice. You guys should try! Have fun trying, girls and boys!

 

Sincerely, Mahirah.
