Is this KuaChi?

Bought the pinenut from a wet market at Seoul. Never eaten this before until when I visited a drink stall outside Changdeokgung Palace.

The wonderful nutty aroma just exploded in your mouth when you put in into your mouth. The kitchen will have a nice aroma when you are toasting them in a pan under low heat.

Normally, I will just toast some and eat it as a snack or put some in my yulmucha (pronouned as yul-mu-cha). Another drink that I have discovered while in Seoul. It is made from adlay flour, soya bean powder and barley flour. No idea what is adlay flour and reckon is another type of wheat.

Remember the Changdeokgung Palace that I mentioned above, I wanted to order a hot drink and been just adventurous, I ordered the yulmucha instead. The lady must have grounded the ingredents herself because the drink was so much delicious than the one I bought from the supermarket. You have a warm feeling in the morning after a cup of yulmucha.
