For Arab users:

A slight change is needed for Kimchi to suit our taste buds. In order to prepare Kimchi that wouldn’t taste too sour, nor too raw to eat, please follow these tips:

1- Add only 3 tablespoon salt + 1/4 cup of vinegar to the preparation brine

2- After draining the vegetables, do not keep the old brine. Instead, prepare 2 fresh cups of water  +1/4 cup vinegar +  tablespoon hot pepper in which you will soak in the vegetables after mixing them with the other ingredients for fermentation.

3- Add only 1/4 tablespoon ginger 

4- Replace garlic powder with 3 fresh minced cloves of garlic

5- Do not leave Kimchi in room temperature more than 1 day as Arabian room temperature is actually too hot which accelerates the fermentation process.
