FAQ

Can I make Kimchi Fried Rice Waffle without a waffle iron?

Unfortunately, a waffle iron works best for that crispy texture. You can try pan-frying it, but it won’t be as waffles!

How do I make the waffle extra crispy?

Make sure your waffle iron is hot and ready before pouring in the batter. It helps create that perfect crunch.

Can I use any type of rice for the kimchi fried rice?

Yup! But short-grain rice works best. It’s a bit sticky, which helps everything stick together.

What if I don’t like spicy food?

You can use less kimchi or choose a milder version. Adjusting the spice lets you enjoy it your way.

Can I freeze the Kimchi Fried Rice Waffle for later?

It’s not the best idea. Waffles are happiest when they’re fresh and crispy.
