It has a nutty, slightly sweet taste from the roasted soybean powder. It has a savory flavor because it is burned. Even the soybean powder bag has a spicy aroma! In Korea, injeolmi powder is associated with celebrations such as weddings, birthdays, and traditional holidays. Injeolmi has traditionally been pounded using a wooden mortar and pestle. The pounding removes air pockets and evenly distributes the ingredients, creating a characteristically smooth texture. It creates the perfect chewy bite, which is highly addictive! Injeolmi can be made with an electric rice cake pounder or mixer.
Injeolmi is delicious as a topping for sweets like bingsu, honey drizzled on toast, or fruit.
Try the Mochi Cookie or Tiramisu mochi if you enjoy injeolmi.
