Indispensable for cooking typical Korean dishes!
Gochugaru is a common ingredient in many Korean dishes, such as Kimchi. Its taste is a pleasant combination of sweet and spicy. It is softly strong; with a zest between that of paprika and jalapeño.
The Gochugaru is a dried red chili, crushed red chili, as its name says. In Korean, Gochu literally means chili, and garu means powder. It is one of the most popular ingredients in Korean cooking, and is widely used to add spice and flavor. Some fermented dishes contain large amounts of Guchugaru, including kimchi, chigae kimchi (fermented cabbage soup), and kkakdugi (daikon kimchi).
