I was making my 10 Reasons Why Filipinos Love Korean Dramas, and one of the strong things that drew me in is how they manage to show their culture thru food.
Thru Korean Dramas, I managed to have an appetite for Kimchi, Spicy Hot Ramen, Bibimbap, Samgyupsal, Korean Side Dishes, Korean Fried Chicken , Korean Beef Steak, and my latest addiction, Tteokbokki or Ddeokbokki or Hot and Spicy Rice Cakes.
Good old Maangchi (who doesnt love her?) is here to help this Korean Cook Wannabe with how to make tteokbokki!
First stop, the grocery. Buy yourself some frozen Rice Cakes. They come pre made in Korean Shops. There’s Korean Specialty Stores sprouting all over. There’s Haneul Mart and Korean Mart in Ortigas alone. I just happened to get my stock at Clark Pampanga. I saw them accidentally and decided to make them.
This is really very easy. It’s all about how to make tteokbokki sauce which makes up for the entire flavor.
1 pack (500 grams) rice cake
3 cups of water
⅓ cup hot pepper paste (gochujang)
1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes
1 tablespoon sugar
3 green spring onions, cut into 3 inch long pieces
2 hard boiled eggs, shelled (optional)
½ pound fish cakes (optional)
