You can put whatever you would like in the curry. I wanted to use up my tofu and squash tonight.

I recommend you use onion, potatoes, carrots, and some protein such as chicken / beef/ shrimp.

  1. Cut the ingredients to bite sizes.

6- Place them inside a baking pan and fill the baking pan with hot water enough to cover half way up of the Crème (bain marie).
7- Bake them for approximately 45 minutes or until if feels set to your touch. If the top looks puffed up you overbaked them. Let it cool at room temperature and then you can store your Crème Brúlée for up to 2 days in your refrigerator.

Making Kimbap (Gimbap) Aka. Korean Sushi Rolls Recipe

In Korea, Kimbap is considered  picnic and snack food that you eat with your hands. Traditional fillings include seasoned vegetables, egg, meat and/or imitation crab, but these days anything goes. From Seoul to NYC, fillings range from cheesy to spicy to fresh. Kimbap is like the Korean version of a sandwich.

Kim or gim means dried seaweed in Korean, and bap or bop means rice. Chamchi (tuna in Korean) is filled with tuna and other vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • Dried seaweed (nori)
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp salt

TRADITIONAL FILLINGSDSC00685

  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • cucumber, cut into long strips
  • 2 eggs

  • fishcake (optional)

  6. Cook meats.
  7. Using a bamboo sushi roller or a piece of tin foil, lay the dried seaweed shiny side down.
  8. Spread about ½ cup of rice onto 2/3 of the seaweed, leaving the top 1/3 bare (if you moisten your fingers or a spoon to pat down the rice, you’ll get less of a sticky mess).
  1. Lay the first ingredient down around 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the seaweed.
  2. Lay the other fillings down on top.
  3. Roll from the bottom (as if you’re rolling a sleeping bag), pressing down to make the fillings stay in.
  4. As you continue to roll, pull the whole thing down towards the end of the bamboo mat.
  5. Spread a tiny dab of water along the top seam to hold the roll together.
  6. Set aside and continue with other seaweed sheets.
  7. Cut each roll into 7-8 pieces.
