Gochugaru Chile


| /

By Occo

Smoky and sweet, with a mild earthiness, crunchy texture, and moderate, pleasant heat. An essential ingredient in many Korean dishes, including the iconic sauce Gochujang.

These chiles are such a key part of Korean cuisine, their name is a generic noun. Call it the kleenex effect: gochugaru literally translates as “chile powder.”
