  • 40g scallion

  • 60g leeks

  • 240g drinking water

  • 15g ginger

  • 10 cloves of garlic

  • 4 tbsp fish sauce

  • 2 tbsp fermented shrimp paste

  • 1-2 tbsp sweetener

  • Cut 1/3 of the cabbage from the bottom and break it apart. Then cut into quarters. Wash the cabbage thoroughly. (00:47-01:11)
  • Spread 140g of salt evenly on the cabbage, focusing more on the white parts. Set aside and flip every 30 minutes. (01:23-01:50)

  • Cut the scallion and leeks into match stick length. (02:12-02:24)
  • In a bowl, pour 240g of drinking water and add ½ tsp of xanthan gum. Mix well with a blender. (02:36-02:54)
  • Roughly chop half an onion and put it in the blender along with 15g ginger and 10 cloves of peeled garlic. Blend until fine. (03:01-03:24)
  • To the green onion and garlic paste, add 4 tbsp fish sauce, 2 tbsp of fermented shrimp paste, and 1-2 tbsp of sweetener. Stir well. (03:31-03:57)
  • Add 50g of chilli powder to the mixture and stir well. Set aside to let it soak. (03:57-04:16)

  • Mix the vegetables with the chilli paste. (05:09-05:15)
  • Spread the chilli paste on each piece of cabbage, then fold in half and place in a clean box. Press to compact and squeeze out the air inside. (05:24-06:02)
  • Cover the cabbage with plastic wrap, pressing against the surface to avoid contact with air. Then cover the box and put it in the refrigerator to ferment. (06:14-06:19)
