1.7kg napa cabbage (can use 1~1.7kg)
few stalks of spring onions
1/4 cup minced garlic
1/4 cup carrot (cut strip)
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/3 cup hot pepper powder (add more if u like spicy)
Add 1 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup mineral salt. Put in cabbage and mix well with your hands. Set aside for 1 1/2 hours. Every 30 minutes turn the cabbage evenly.
Make kimchi paste by mixing Ingredients B in a bowl.
Rinse the cabbage with cold water 2-3 times to clean it thoroughly. Drain and set aside.(10 minutes soaking for common cabbage)
Mix the kimchi paste and cabbage alternately to mix evenly.
Put the kimchi into a air-tight container. You may keep it into a jar or plastic bag too.
Press the kimchi down to prevent your kimchi from being exposed to too much air.
DONE! Isn't it simple?
