Step 1: Place the cooked rice into a mixing bowl then add 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and 1/4 tsp fine sea salt (or more to taste). Mix them well with a rice spatula.

Step 2: Pre-heat a pan/skillet. Add a small dash of cooking oil and spread it around the pan. Add the beaten egg and cook both sides well over medium heat. Place the egg omelet on a cutting board and cut it into long strips.

Step 3: In a heated pan, lightly cook the carrots, the optional meat (about 1 min per ingredient), separately, and over medium heat.

Step 4: Gather all the kimbap ingredients at the ‘kimbap rolling station’. This makes it easy to assemble.

Step 5: Place one dried seaweed sheet on the bamboo mat (shiny side down). Put the rice on the seaweed sheet then spread it evenly and thinly to cover about 2/3 of the seaweed. (Leave about 5cm / 2 inches gap at the top of the seaweed).

Step 6: Now fill the seaweed with the filling ingredients. Paste some water on the gap you left. Slice kimbap into bite-size pieces. Ready to serve!
