How to ... egg-rolls, and Dosirak No. 3

on Sunday, July 31, 2011
Hi 도시락lovers,

so here a 도시락 with the Korean pancakes leftovers.
I also added some egg-rolls with a seaweed sheet ( Korean Kim or Japanese Nori is fine). So how to make them? Pretty easy: You squirl two eggs with some salt and pepper. You put them in a pan and the Kim on top, like this:

How to ... Korean Pancakes

Hi everyone,

So in this entry (Amra, you'll love this one ^^) I'll show you how to do Korean Pancakes. You can put like totally anything into a Korean pancake. Now as a half Korean, I really adore Kimchi (, and I love Kimchi pancakes (김치부친개, also see for a different recipe). But what to do when you have no Kimchi at hand (hey, it's really tricky to get Kimchi in some places in Europe and Kimchi making is a LOT of work...)? Here is a nice trick my good friend Boo taught me:

Speedy 도시락 (Dosirak No. 2)

Hi 도시락lovers,

here is another 도시락 set, with leftovers from preparing the other one (see post below). This is a great way to speed things up (which means one box in less then 10 minutes) and still have a pretty and yummy lunch.

(Leftover Kimbaps and leftover avocado, leftover salmon with flower-carrots and cauliflower and leftover cherries.)
(Rice balls with sesame seeds, seasoned with sesame oil and soy sauce, wrapped in leftover sesame leaves. Leftover salmon with same veggies as in the upper pic.)

New Blog! (Dosirak No. 1)

Hi everyone,

so this is my first blog and first post, like, ever!!! <(^.^)>
So here my two 도시락 boxes from yesterday.

My box (I really <3 the 토끼s! For those who wondered: My box can contain 600 ml max) is filled with surimi-avocado-spinach-Kimbaps and smoked salmon with wasabi on the side. The spinach was seasoned Korean style (see for instructions). And lots of fruits for a sweet treat!

My partner (who doesn't have a cute box yet, but it's ordered and coming soon, yeay!) gets some rice with peas, seasoned with sesame oil and soy sauce. This pasture is decorated with steamed carrot-flowers. And there's some smoked salmon, fixed with canned sesame leaves (for some fun pictures of Steve Jobs presenting the "canned sesame leaves 4G" see and raw kohlrabi with salt and pepper.
For I prepared the seasoned spinach beforehand and took the rice right out of my rice cooker, both boxes took me about 30 minutes (it took some time to do the carrots - for a nice video with even cuter ones, see here:
