Korean red pepper powder - also known as gochugaru or gur goon gochugaru - has smoky, fruity-sweet notes, with a hot kick. Gochugaru is most famously used to make the country's national dish, kimchi, and is sometimes even called kimchi pepper because of this.
Korean red pepper powder comes in different grinds - this variety is a coarse grind, perfect for making kimchi. Use gochugaru in other Korean recipes such as tteokbokki, bulgogi, stir fries as well as delicious dipping sauces and meat marinades.
We also use the gochugaru red pepper powder as a seasoning to sprinkle over noodle dishes, or even as a rub for roast chicken, along with finely diced garlic and preserved lemons.

Is gochugaru the same as chilli flakes?
Gochugaru is a Korean red pepper powder. This variety is coarsely ground and you can use it as you would chilli flakes – sprinkle gochugaru over noodle and rice dishes, or pair with garlic and preserved lemons for a chicken marinade.
