Last year I’d planned to make Korean Market Chicken which is deep fried and requires roasted soy bean powder. After a fairly lengthy search of 3 Asian stores I was not able to find it. Or even find anyone who knew what I was talking about. I am not even sure if they understood what I was saying and I certainly did not know what it was. I ended up making it but without the soy bean powder.
Later, after reading this blog, a friend in San Francisco sent me a pack. I can see why I didn’t find it in the store if, indeed, it was actually in the store.
