Tteokbokki is a Korean Rice Cake dish. It usually goes with spicy Gochujang sauce, fish cake, onion, cabbage, and green onion. My tteokbokki version that I am about to introduce to you will be nowhere close to the original Korean version. However, that is how I usually save my hungry stomach from the craving for spicy comfort food with ingredients I have in my fridge. So with no further due, let’s start cooking!
110g rice flour
83ml hot water
1 tbs Gochujang (can add more if you like spicy)
1/2 tbs sugar
1 tbs soy sauce
1 boiled egg
Dry parsley or sesame seeds to your liking
First, to make tteokbokki, we add 110g rice flour with hot water. Mix the batter well. Add more water if you feel it’s too dry.
Dust the cut board with more rice flour. Divide the batter into small parts and roll them to the size of our fingers.
Cut the tteokbokki to the length that you prefer. Then boil the ttteokbokki for about 10 to 15 minutes until softened. Then drain the tteokbokki and put it in a bowl of cold water (not ice water).
For the sauce, pour 250ml water into a pot. Add Gochujang, sugar, and soy sauce then bring to boil. Add tteokbokki and boil until the water is reduced. In this step, you can add onion, fish cake or any kind of vegetable you like to boil with the tteokbokki. Check the seasoning to your liking before turning off the heat. Serve with toppings of your choice and you got a cheap and yummy comfort food dish for dinner.
