  1. Hi!

    Could someone tell me if it's possible to make kimchi without the riceflour and sugar?

    A more suitable kimchi for people who suffers from diabetes...

  2. Hi
    I am copying and pasting this from FAQ in my most recent recipe "easy kimchi" Use pear juice!

    Q: Maangchi, do I have to make porridge to make kimchi? If I don’t want to use porridge, what shall I do?
    A: No, you don’t have to. Some people don’t use porridge, but I always make porridge to make good kimchi paste. Porridge helps hot pepper flakes, fish sauce, garlic, ginger and all spices mix together. Otherwise, the kimchi paste will be too thick to put it between cabbage leaves easily. So you can use sweet pear juice instead of making porridge if you want. I sometimes use pear to make kimchi paste, too.

  3. hey kailash. kimchi doesnt raise blood-sugar... or at least, it shouldnt, since during fermentation sugar turns into lactic acid.

    i am diabetic too and never had high bloodsugar from kimchi... although i dont know about fresh kimchi.
