    1. Place the cabbage into a large dish and sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 3 to 4 hours. The cabbage will wilt.
    2. After the cabbage has been sitting, massage it with your hands until it is even softer. Drain off the liquid. Mix in the spring onions, garlic, chilli powder, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar.
    3. Transfer to a large glass jar and refrigerate for 24 hours before using. This will keep for about a week in the refrigerator. Sprinkle with sesame oil before serving.
