    Have you already tried to follow Maangchi’s instructions? She makes a sort of porridge to make the kimchi paste thicker.
    Here is the link, it should start at 2:07 minutes, otherwise skip until 2:07 when she starts to explain why she makes porridge.

    Hi, if you mean the side dish with green leaves, it looks like sigeumchi namul (spinach side dish) to me.
    Check this out

    I have done a bit of research and, if I am not mistaken, taeyangcho means “sun-dried”. I suppose it is a smart move to sell something seemingly more natural, but also more expensive. Just type taeyangcho and you’ll find several links.

    Thanks to both of you for your replies :-)
    Yes, it is still ok and I’m glad I succeeded. Hours watching Maangchi’s kimchi videos were not spent in vain!

    Hello,
    they look like potatoes, don’t they?

    If I got it right, try Gamjajorim 감자조림, Maangchi’s recipe is here

    Potato & soy sauce side dish (Gamjajorim)

    I read somewhere else that they can be also coated with a sticky sauce, like the ones you posted.

    Good luck! ;)

    Hello! I am a fan of Korean food without ever having been there. I had the chance to eat in different Korean restaurants in Italy but that’s about all, apart from making delicious food on my own.
    So this is why I can reply only your last question about rice, ‘burnt’ rice and rice tea, some time ago Maangchi posted an exhaustive video here https://www.maangchi.com/recipe/rice
    Enjoy!

    Thank you for your feedback, I am Italian too and in the chinese grocery store I can find some stuff (gochujang, doenjang, refrigerated kimchi, noodles, etc.) but not everything.

    When I happen to go to Milan I go to Il Sempreverde, but i find it quite expensive, so that almost 10 euro shipping from Germany make it somehow affordable if you buy more than one item.

    I shopped there when it was called asiakauf, but now that I see a positive feedback for Shinhan I will definitely buy something from them.

    I am running out of multigrain rice… :-)

    Thank you / grazie

    Hello everyone, I am looking for multi-grain rice online but it seems very difficult to find. In Italy I am not sure whether to combine different grains myself because I don’t know all varieties of rice or legumes. Does anybody know whether some online shop, if possible in Europe, sells multi grain rice? I only found this so far

    Hello Kerstin, you can find them quite easily at amazon. If you are in Germany I suggest you to look in the UK site of amazon rather than the US one, so you save shipping costs and you have no custom issues.

    For example if you type ‘cup measurement’ you will find something like this

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/11pc-measuring-spoon-cup-set/dp/B002GTKHUQ/ref=sr_1_7?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1373188297&sr=1-7&keywords=cup+measures

    German version

    Hallo Kerstin, diese ‘Cups’ und ‘Spoons’ kannst Du einfach bei amazon finden. Wenn Du in Deutschland bist, suche einfach unter http://www.amazon.co.uk, so dass Du niedrigere Versandkosten und keine Verzollung wie mit amazon.com (USA) bekommst. Zum Beispiel kannst Du so was finden

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/11pc-measuring-spoon-cup-set/dp/B002GTKHUQ/ref=sr_1_7?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1373188297&sr=1-7&keywords=cup+measures

    The first time I saw how to smash & peel garlic the Maangchi way was actually on an arab tv. They also use lots of garlic and it was fun to watch the chef smashing the cloves with his knife. Now I always peel it like that ;-)

    Dear Maangchi, how are you?

    I have a question about azuki beans. I bought them to try to make chapssalddeok but on the label it says they should be soaked in water for 24 hours before use.

    On your video it looks like they are not soaked. Are there many varieties or boiling for 90 minutes make them soft anyway?

    Thank you in advance for your answer + thanks for all the videos!

    Thank you for your reply Maangchi!

    Now I understand. Actually flakes were not completely dry so I should have known they needed to stay in freezer.

    Like many Italians keep their coffee in the fridge :-) but this is only to preserve the flavour, coffee doesn’t go bad at ambient temperature.

    감사합니다 !

    After using my gochugaru I put it back in its plastic bag, but after one month I have the impression it has gone bad. Summer is very hot this year and I didn't think I should put it in the fridge, but yesterday when I wanted to use gochugaru to make another doejibulgogi, it didn't look very nice, had a sort of mould on it.
    I took a photo. Could someone tell me if it is ok or if I have to dispose of it?

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Hi Fiore, I am Italian too, it is nice to see some other Italian here!

    I see you live in Milan: have you tried some of the korean restaurants there? I am lucky enough to have one in Mestre, not far from where I live, and I love it.

    I try to make some korean food my self as well from time to time, but I am not terribly good at that (yet)!

    And thanks to Godisgood for helping Fiore with the language, very very nice of you!
