    How to Make It

    Wash all the vegetables first. Chop aubergines into round slices and then cut the slices into four pieces. Julienne (cut into matchsticks) the carrots, red cabbage and red peppers and thinly slice the chestnut mushrooms. I like to use a mandolin for this part but watch your fingers!

    Boil a kettle with 250 ml water and pour it in a pan, add the beansprouts and a small pinch of salt. Cover the pan with a lid, boil them for 3 minutes, drain the beansprouts thoroughly and put them in a bowl, add a couple of teaspoons of sesame oil and and mix them together.
    Fry the remaining vegetables separately in a little vegetable oil and if you want, a pinch of salt.

    Fry an egg to your liking. I like runny eggs, but, you can do whatever you want.

    Put 1 portion of cooked rice in a large, preferably oversized, bowl. Use whatever amount of rice you fancy. A little or, like me, a lot. I used brown and white rice mixed for a healthy diet.

    In Korea, we eat sticky rice, the same as sushi rice, but it is up to you if you prefer long grain rice or basmati rice.
    Arrange the cooked vegetables on the bed of rice.

    Add a handful of watercress, the fried egg, 1 or 2 tablespoons of chilli paste (or you can use soy sauce if you don’t like spicy food), and a teaspoon of sesame oil. I like to serve bibimbap at this point and let my guests mix everything together in the bowl.

    For Dolsot Bimbimbap follow steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Bibimbap recipe.
    Put the dolsot on a low heat. Add 2 teaspoons of sesame oil. This is to stop the rice from sticking to the bowl while cooking and it tastes nice too!
    Add 1 portion of cooked rice. Again, use as much as you would eat if you were serving it on a plate.
    Arrange the cooked veg, watercress, chilli paste (or soy sauce), a raw egg (don’t worry! It will cook in the hot bowl when you mix it all together) and a teaspoon of sesame oil on top of the rice.
    Cover with the dolsot lid and cook for 3-4 minutes or until it sizzles.
    Carefully serve the dolsot at the table on a heat proof mat. Take care, it will be very hot.

    Mix all the ingredients in the bowl and enjoy!
