5 mins to prep

  1. Step 1

    Add the rice, water and a pinch of salt to a cold pot. Cover and bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer until air pockets appear. If it is feeling a little more water, then do so and bring it back to the boil. Aim for the rice to be nearly fully cooked once the liquid has almost all gone.

  2. Step 2

    Use the handle of a wooden spoon to create holes in the rice.

  3. Step 3

    Turn up to medium heat and pour a little vegetable oil in the holes. Cook for about 5 minutes.

  4. Step 4

    With confidence, turn it out onto a plate or chopping board.

  5. Step 5

    Top with kimchi and spring onions to serve.
