Glutinous or sweet rice - chap ssal찹쌀

Rice, Noodles and Rice Cakes

Known as either glutinous or sweet rice, it contains either gluten or any kind of sweetener, however its especially sticky consistency and mildly sweet flavour when cooked (in comparison to other varieties of rice), resulted in the name. It is used in the baby chicken dish to stuff the cavity, and is also used ground down in the porridge dishes, lending them a silky smooth and wonderfully rich texture. It is also used in Korean desserts as a flour, again for its chewy consistency once cooked, like in the ‘sweet rice cakes’.
