Tteokbokki Korean Rice Cakes Pinterest

Tteokbokki, Korean favorite street food, is made of savory rice cakes cooked in spicy hot sauce. They can be served with vegetables or a protein of choice, here I served them with my fish cakes, hot, spicy, so good!

Tteokbokki or rice cakes are a kind of Korean gluten free rice pasta, they could be the equivalent of our gnocchi made of rice flour. The texture is chewy, not very flavorful on their own, it is the fiery gochujang sauce that gives them a lot of flavor.

The rice cakes are usually cooked in an anchovy broth but since I didn’t have any anchovies, I just cooked them in a light chicken broth. The broth is seasoned with hot pepper paste and flakes to taste, gochujang is the chili sauce to go but chili bean paste can be used also.

♥ Warning: the ingredient quantities I’m listing in the recipe make for a very hot sauce just the way I like it but I thought it better to warn you!

Tteokbokki are served on their own or with some vegetables and/or a protein of choice, hard boiled eggs, meat, here I served them with my homemade fishcakes, that was so good!

I used frozen tteokbokki, the only sort I could find at my Asian supermarket, if you are going to use frozen tteokbokki like me, it is better to thaw and rinse them prior cooking.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do, please leave me a comment and let me know how it went! Also if you're fond of Asian cuisine, please browse my category "World Cuisine" for more propositions
