Cooking in the 고시텔~

Now that I have moved to a nicer 고시텔 where my mind is at peace, I’ve decided to start cooking in the kitchen. ^^ I’ll post photos of my 고시텔 next time, but I like it here very much. The kitchen is clean and I feel that I can use the bowls and utensils with relative ease. I buy my own pot/pan and my own sponge for washing the dishes though. ^^

Most 고시텔s provide free eggs, kimchi, ramen, rice and I love the eggs here. They are big 😀 😀 Unlike my previous place where the eggs are small and sometimes look like they are past their expiry date -.- The eggs here are kept in a big fridge.

I’ve only started cooking today and here’s 2 non-fuss recipes. I don’t think they will work for everyone. I can eat really blandly ^^

Here’s my stash of food.

I bought a packet of dried 미역 too.

Recipe 1: Noodles (국수)

Step 1: Slice 3 clusters of broccolli and soak

Step 2: Wash and slice the mushroom

Step 3: boil the water and add in the brocolli and the noodles

Step 4: add in the mushroom

Step 5: Add the egg last min and off the stove

hahaha total fuss free right? I can’t even be bothered with seasoning. xD Like I said, I eat really blandly at times, you can tweak the recipe as you want. Everything done with 10min~! ^^

The ramen pot cooks everything really fast! And it’s cheap too, at 3000won.

Recipe 2: Egg rice

Step 1: soak the 미역 in water

Step 2: slice the mushrooms

Step 3: Add oil in the pan and fry both the 미역 and mushrooms. Season with soy sauce

Step 4: Crack 2-3 eggs

Step 5: Add in the rice before the eggs are fully cook and mix everything

Step 6: serve in a bowl

hahahaha another fuss free recipe. xD

I cook better than this in Singapore, but hey, I don’t like staying in the common kitchen for too long~

snacks that keep me happy! 😀

Do share any fuss free recipes 😀 I think I may make 미역국 next time (my own style) but I need garlic. and I’m lazy to get the unpeeled ones and peeled ones will be more expensive.

I can’t believe I didn’t start cooking earlier. ^^

As the weather gets colder, I get less motivated to go out. I’ll probably be cooking more often!

As for breakfast, I eat bread with a slice of cheese and tomatoes on the side! ^^

I think I may have a yoghurt now! 😀

    try 김치 볶음밥! ^^

    although you need garlic for it too. haha.

    just pan-fry garlic and kimchi, plus whatever veg you like (i like to add in carrots!) for about 2-3 mins, then dump in the rice. mix it all up, add in some soya sauce plus a little sugar for seasoning. then add a sunny-side up on top and you’re done! =D
