Taiwan Style Kimchi 台式泡菜


Thanks everyone for your regards on my son's rashes, he is getting better after medication, no more frustrated scratching :D. So lucky as I can't take leave to take care of him due to busy schedule this week for exhibition, extremely busy. I am stealing time to post this up for AFF event :P.

Ingredients :
500g cabbage
1/3 carrot
1/2 cucumber
1 chili
2 cloves garlic

Marinate Ingredients :
120g sugar
375ml rice vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
300ml water
2 sour plum (I increased to 4)

Method :
1. Boil the water and off the fire, add in sugar and stir till dissolve.
2. Add in rice vinegar, salt, sour plum and mix well, set aside to cool.
3. Julienned chili, smash garlic, peel skin and slice carrot and cucumber, tear cabbage into big pieces, set aside.
4. Add salt to cabbage, carrot and cucumber, set aside for cabbage to turn soft, use hand to squeeze or press out the vegetable juice, repeat a few times and rinse the salt away. Drain the water away and set aside.
5. Put in the cabbage, carrot, cucumber, chili and garlic in the glass jar and pour in the cooked marinated ingredients. 
6. Store in the fridge for at least one day before serving.

This is so appetizing, and so nice to eat after a full meal too, but my mil thinks is too sour for her lol.

I am submitting this post to Asian Food Fest, Taiwan Month,

I'm linking this post to Cook-Your-Books #15 organised by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours.


  1. 这个不错吃, 那日也盯上了。。可是懒的动手! 呵呵

  2. Hi Jess! Glad that your son is getting better. This Taiwan style kimchi is sure different from the Korean one. No chilli :)

  3. Hi Jess,
    Glad to know that your son is well now.
    Ohh!! this Taiwan pao cai looks yum!!

  4. Hi Jess,
    I love pickles, and when I see the title kimchi, I thought your pickles would be really spicy and red! But what a nice surprise, I love munching on pickles like this! Very addictive and difficult to stop at just a few slices! Looks so appetizing, and I love kimchi, the spicy type as well!
    Thanks for linking with CYB!

  5. this also sounds like a simple acar, will make a great appetiser or side dish too!

  6. Glad to hear that your son is recovering well...this Taiwanese Kimchi indeed looks appetizing!
