Kimchi Fried Rice/Kimchi Bokkeumbap (김치볶음밥)

Kimchi Bokkeumbap or kimchi fried rice is a simple and common korean food which is great for busy people. It takes very little time to prepare but it's still considered healthy.

This is my favorite kind of fried rice because of the sour hotness of kimchi that makes the rice appetizing. I like to eat it with a sunny side up.

The key to a delicious kimchi fried rice is a well fermented kimchi. One that's sour and wilted will do well. If you bought a fresh kimchi, leave it at room temp for 24 hours, then refrigerate the next day. By day three, it will be sour enough for your fried rice.
