    would it be okay to still use the hot pepper flakes to make gochujang? i cant seem to find any that have a lower price for postage and i also cannot find the two brands mentioned at to top.
    what would happen if i use the coarse red chilli flakes?

    Hello Maangchi, I am vegan and I tried to make kimchi tofu stew using vegan kimchi. I think I made a mistake when I made the chili paste. It was way too hot. is there a mild chili powder you recommend.

    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?
