- Add sugar and stir until mixed.
- Allow the flour porridge to cool.

How to create kimchi:
- Wash the mustard greens thoroughly with running water, wash thoroughly.
- Mustard can be cut into two parts, shaved in squares or cared for completely depending on taste.
- Baluri mustard greens with salt strands by strands to get the stem. Make sure all parts are exposed to salt.
- Transfer the mustard that has been covered with salt into a container or basin.
- Let stand about 4 hours or until the mustard greens (shrink), and there will be a lot of standing water.
- Then wash the cabbage home with running water until it is completely clean so that no salt is left. At least cleaned up to 3 times.
- Then drain the mustard greens.
- If the paste has already been made, wear plastic or rubber gloves to avoid irritation when seasoning mustard greens with pasta paste.
- Take mustard greens, apply with paste that has been created until evenly distributed.
- After completion, put the mustard in an airtight jar or container but don’t fill it to the brim because, during the process of fermentation, the mustard will release a small amount of water.
- Leave mustard for about two days at room temperature so that fermentation occurs. But it can also be eaten immediately after the pass is made.
- The successful fermentation process can be witnessed by the presence of bubbles in the container.
- After two days, kimchi is ready to be served.
- Don’t put kimchi directly in the refrigerator before the fermentation process.
- After the fermentation process has passed, then the kimchi is put in the refrigerator so it can last a long time.
- If you use local chili powder, the appearance of kimchi will not be as red as Korean chili powder.
- But the flavor of the local chili powder is spicier compared to Korean chili powder.
