    Hi maangchi!

    For the potato starch powder, can we use regular potato starch from the different store and not from the Korean store?? It’s for the yangnyeom-tongdak dish.

    Hi Maangchi,
    May I ask you, the potato starch that sell in korean store, is it the same with “katakuri-ko starch” which is potato starch that use in japanese dessert recipe, for dusting (such as dusting the rice cake daifuku, the sweet rice cake that have red bean inside, and using katakuriko starch/potato starch for dusting out side)?
    When we do sweet rice ball with red bean inside (your recipe), Can we use korean potato starch for dusting rice cake instead of roast soy bean powder?
    Thanks,
    Pam

      no, no, no! You make potato dish which contains lots of potato starch in it, then add more starch potato to it? : )
      Just skip corn syrup and use honey or sugar.

    Hi there – I just stumbled upon your great website last night when I was searching for jajangmyun recipe :)
    I already got most of the ingredients today – but I was wondering if I could substitute potato starch w/ either tapioca starch or corn starch?

    Thanks!

    I always get this at a Korean store, but I think you can get it at any store.

    Jodi,
    Did you get it at Korean grocery store? Then it must be potato starch powder. It’s translation mistake. I bought the same thing a while ago! It’s definitely potato starch powder.

    Hi Maangchi,

    I accidently bought “Potato Powder” instead of starch (apparently I need to work on my Korean..), what can use it for?

    Hua,
    You can use potato starch for many dishes. It never goes bad, just keep it in an air sealed container to use next time. When you make stew, if you like to make your stew sticky, you can use it. Check out my black bean noodles recipe. I am showing how to use it.
