"What you want do with chickpea flour is make panelle. Use 8oz (by weight) of chickpea flour, 4 cups water, 1/2 cup olive oil and a large pinch of calt. Cook it in a pot over medium heat until it comes together and gets nice and thick like polenta. Pour it into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish and smooth the top so its even and let it cool completely. Then, cut it into brownie sized pieces and saute in a little olive oil intil golden. A little salt and pepper is all that's needed after that. SO delicious!"

"If my jar says "Roasted Black Bean Paste," can I skip the step of frying the paste, or will frying it enhance the flavor even more?"

"Maangchi... if you are ever in the South Florida area, I would love for you to come and cook with me. I have a large kitchen with everything you will need and an extra bedroom!! And, I will never let you eat pancakes like that! LOL! Cheryl :)"

"Oh, my goodness... I have to say I feel like the luckiest person here. I bought my rice cooker at Target for $12.80 American dollars (on sale) plus tax. It has both white and brown rice buttons, and I can steam food in it too. It makes perfect sushi rice! I would imagine that it would work plugged into my European adapter should the need arise (don't those things have plugs for New Zealand and other countries too?) I trust the adapter with my computer, why not a rice cooker?! They're not super expensive even when they're not on sale. If anyone wants one, Let me know! Cheryl :)"

"Maangchi... I don't see a link in your reply above (12/11/11). You say "This is a list of Korean grocery stores in the USA'" but I don't see anything to clck on... I want to see if there's anything here that I've mnissed! :) I live in South Florida, and I can supply a list of a few Korean/Asian markets in the surrounding area if you would like it. I think there's one in Lake Worth that actually carries those pots. When I return, I'll check it out. Keep up the great work!! Cheryl :D"

"Hi Maancghi! I'm making Sankaya for Thanksgiving... I'm so excited! I went to the Asian Market to get my Kabocha pumpkin (5 lbs... I'm making a BIG Sankaya!), and I mentioned to the (Korean) cashier what I was making; she asked me to make her some! When I told her I make my own kimchi too, she asked how I knew about all this stuff. I told her all about you and wrote down your website for her. I think you are awesome! Please keep doing what you obviously love to do!!! I will certainly keep spreading the word! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones! :D"

"Maangchi... I, too, would like to make a smaller amount. My head of nappa cabbage is about 3.5 lbs. Will this be enough kimchi paste for that amount of cabbage? Thank you! Cheryl :)"

"Hi Maangchi!! I'm so excited to make your kimchi. I made your kimchi pancakes from store bought stuff that was pretty tasty, but I'll bet they would be ay better with homemade kimchi! I don't really need 10 pounds of it though. I don't have THAT many friends who really like kimchi! lol! I have 1 head of cabbage which weighs about 3.5 lbs. Should I just use 1/3 of the amounts you suggest, or can you suggest better amounts for just one head of cabbage? I want to make the porridge too... If I'm gonna do it, I might as well do it right! Thank you!! Cheryl :)"

"I have another question that I forgot to ask in my last post. I think my husband would like these, but he's gluten free. Would rice flour work in place of all purpose flour?"

"Maangchi... these are fantastic!!! I had some Kimchi in my fridge (for a while) that I was still a little skeptical about tasting because I had never tried it before. I was a llittle embarrassed when I asked a friend if it was still good, and she laughed at me! I found your pancake recipe and thought it was perfect for my first attempt. Boy, was I ever right!!! I had a little too much oil in my pan to flip it like you did, but it came out just like your video (except in 2 pieces! lol!) I have a neighbor who loves when I experiment with cooking and he'll literally eat anything. I ran right over there and he loved it just as much as I did. Thanks so much!! I love your website. Keep up the good work! :)"
