Serving suggestions

This can be accompanied by a cabbage or radish kimchi. Although this is actually a breakfast dish, you may wish to serve it as an accompaniment to a main course.

Chef's notes

The Koreans generally use a medium-grained rice, as they are not so fond of Basmati or long-grained rice as the latter varieties are of course found mainly in India and the Middle East. However, I did in fact use Basmati.
