Korean Chili Pepper Flakes


Gochugaru, Korean chili pepper flakes, is a staple ingredient in Korean cuisine. Traditionally, it is made from sun-dried Korean chili peppers which are milled into flakes or powder. Large spreads of red chili peppers drying in the sun are a common sight in the Korean countryside. Try this delicious Korean staple, and let the Gopher know how you like it!

4 Thoughts on “Korean Chili Pepper Flakes (Go-Chu-Ga-Ru, 고추가루)”

  • Does the package of Gochugaru you are showing above have salt as one of the ingredients? The ones I saw in the store near me had salt as ingredients? Should I buy the ones without salt?

    • Hi Kazuyoshi,

      The one I showed in the video does not have salt in it since my mom gave me her homemade one. That being said, I notice that store bought gochugaru often has salt in it. I have bought and used it, and dishes turned out well. So it should be good. Good that you check the ingredients though.

      Happy cooking!
