Common Questions

What is the difference between Korean Chili Powder and regular chili powder?

Korean chili powder is made from thin red peppers that are sun-dried on woven mats or strung together and hung from the eaves of thatch-roofed houses throughout the countryside. You can find Korean Chili powder in Korean or Asian markets.

Chile powder or powdered chili is the ground, dried fruit of one or more varieties of chili pepper, sometimes with the addition of other spices, when it may be known as chili powder or chili powder blend. It is used as a spice to add flavor to dishes. In American English the name of the fruit is spelled “chile” or “chili”, and in the blend, it is spelled “chili”.

Chili powder is sometimes known by the specific type of chili pepper used (such as cayenne pepper). It is used in many different cuisines, including Indian, Tex-Mex, Chinese, and Thai.
