And since these days all the evenings had been rainy, this is a good stew that can warm your body & soul. 🙂

What you need for this dish is really…up to whatever you like in your stew. But basically you will need below :

The ingredients below can feed 4 pax

kimchi stew ingredients

  • Miso paste x 2 – 3 table spoon (you can use Japanese white or red miso, or for a more authentic taste use Korean miso paste)
  • Kimchi x 1/2 pack (125g)
  • Onions x 1 medium size (thinly sliced)
  • Carrots x 1 (thinly sliced)
  • Spring Onions x 2 stalks
  • Chilli powder (optional)

 10.  Put in some Korean potato noodles, it will takes less than 1 min to soften the noodles. It has a rather chewy texture and also is quite filling.

You can see this version of the Kimchi chigae is not as fiery red because I have opted to use white miso and also I didn’t add any chilli powder in it as I ran out of it.

If you want a more authentic taste, you can only use the basic ingredients, add some clams and tofu, and also use Korean red miso, you will get a very close version to those you get in Korean restaurant. 🙂

As for the Korean potato noodles, you can also use it to fry noodles as well, it goes well with some beef and vegetables or seafood. Something different from the yellow noodles or kway teow. 🙂

Hope this recipe can warm you up during this wet season, great for both sharing with the family or just eating alone.

Happy Cooking!
