Hot pepper powder is made from finely ground dried hot peppers and is used to make Korean gochujang (hot pepper paste). It’ll give your gochujang a nice silky texture.

Maangchi i think i made mistake for buying red pepper powder istead of hot pepper flakes. I want to make kimchi. Can i use that red pepper powder to make kimchi like you use hot pepper flakes? Will it be different for the taste of my kimchi? Thank you Maangchi… i really need your help. God bless you.
Is this only used to make gochujang?
yes, it is.
I think I saw in one of your videos you mentioned some hot pepper powder that was very hot and some that was very mild. I was at a Korean market yesterday, and they had quite a few types of this ingredient. But I couldn’t tell how hot they were. I love things super spicy but my family doesn’t. So I wanted to get some hot and some mild. But I couldn’t at all tell how hot each was. Is there any way for someone who can’t read any Korean to tell how hot it is?
