      Hello, I’ve tried Maangchi’s kimchi receipe and its fantastic! i love how good it tastes and have now mastered the Baechu, Kkakdugi and Oi-Sobagi Kimchi. May i know how i can make it more spicy please? I’ve tried adding the amount of pepper flakes but that only thickens my paste, but its not spicy still. Any advise please?

      There are spicier kinds of gochugaru available – but you might just add some ground hot peppers to the mix instead. Habaneros come to mind.

      I just drop some finely chopped ghost peppers to mine. Or habaneros. It does affect the flavor, but I like the fruity burn flavor they lend. I suppose a super hot cayenne would be more flavor neutral.

      Korean pepper isnt all that hot normally, though there are some special extra hot varieties you could track down.
