Umma's Kimchi Jigeh
Taste before adding more salt. Kimchi will have enough salt for most people.
Rice cakes (1-inch, tube-shaped cakes, not the flat ovals) are an optional ingredient. If using, soak the cakes in water for 30 minutes. Drain and let dry. Heat oil in a skillet and fry rice cakes for 1 minute. Add cooked rice cakes to the saucepan when adding kochu jang.
