HOW TO MAKE KIMCHI FRIED RICE IN AN INSTANT POT

  • Press Saute and add oil to the inner pot of Instant Pot. When the oil is hot, add onions & bell pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes until they are soft & tender.
  • Now add chopped garlic and soy sauce to the pot and cook for 1 minute. Add Rice, Water, Salt & Pepper to the pot and cancel Saute.
  • With vent in the sealing position, pressure cook for 4 minutes. When the timer beeps, NPR (No Pressure Release) for 10 minutes and then do Quick Release.
  • When the valve goes down and pressure is released, open lid. Stir in Kimchi and mix properly.
  • Finally, add the Kimchi juice and mix until properly combined and garnish with Cilantro & Green Onions.

HOW TO MAKE KIMCHI FRIED RICE ON STOVE-TOP USING LEFTOVER RICE

  • Add oil in the wok at medium-heat. When oil is hot add onion & bell pepper and cook until soft & tender.
  • Now add chopped garlic and soy sauce to the pot and cook for 1 minute. Then add leftover rice along with salt and stir until combined properly.
  • Then add Kimchi and juice in the fried rice and mix until everything is combined well. Transfer in a bowl and garnish with cilantro & green onions & serve.

Notes

Kimchi Juice gives main flavor to the dish. So after straining Kimchi, keep the juice aside and add it to the rice in the last step.
For Stove- Top Cooking, uncooked leftover rice is added, as Kimchi Rice are supposed to be a little hard in texture and not lumpy. When making it in Instant Pot, you can Saute at the end until all the moisture is absorbed and then add Kimchi Juice.
Using Soy Sauce adds color to the recipe, and adding green onions & cilantro add freshness and flavor.
You can serve Fried rice with egg fried with sunny side up. You can also add any other ingredients of your liking like Tofu, Cauliflower, etc.
I have used my Instant Pot Duo60 7-in-1 6QT Multi-Cooker to make this dish.
