Also known as Tteokbokki, this is a popular Korean snack food. I first tasted this from the to-go counter at a local Korean Supermarket. My husband likes this a lot and because it’s so easy to make, we prefer making our own than buying from the store.
Here’s my easy recipe:
Rice Cake (Tubes), Green Onions, Fish Cake, Red Bell Peppers, Hot Pepper Paste, Dried Anchovy, Sugar, Sesame Oil and Water
Prepare your ingredients: Wash the rice cakes in cold water and separate the tubes into individual pieces. Slice the fish cakes, green onions and mince the bell pepper.
In a shallow pan, add 3-4 cups of cold water and add 5-10 large pieces of dried anchovies depending on your taste(making sure to remove the heads and intestines). Cover your pan and boil for a couple of minutes over medium high heat. Remove the anchovies and add the rice cakes, 5 Tbsp. of hot pepper paste and 1 Tbsp. of sugar. Mix and simmer for 1 minute.
Add the remaining ingredients, bell peppers, fish cakes and green onions. Keep cooking and stir until the spicy sauce thickens. Before serving, add a dash of sesame oil. Serve warm!! Perfect snack, appetizer, or meal. Enjoy!!!
