Nabak Kimchi

Slices of cabbage and radish can make Nabak kimchi by adding seasoning and sauce to the mixture. It has the clean taste of both Chinese Cabbage kimchi and Ggagduki. It is important to make it not too hot, nor too salty. No fish juice is added. Ground red chili is added not directly to it. In order to give a clean and uncoercing flavor, we wrap the ground chili with a small cloth bag, and wave it in the salted water to give a hint of red to the sauce.
