Tteokbokki / Ddeokbokki

Tteokbokki / Ddeokbokki is one of my favourite Korean food. The first I saw it was (of course) in the Korean show. It looked so tasty. And everyone kept saying that it’s spicy too. And I am a spicy lover. Then I decided to try this. Looked for the recipes from all over the place. Finally found Maangchi, the Korean lady I like so much. She is Korean and she has lots of mouth-watering Korean food recipes.

However, I did some changes to the sauce. I use what I can find here. And I reduce the spiciness a little bit, so husband can eat it too 😛

I usually put anything I have left in the fridge (beef / chicken / seafood / sausage). So everytime I make this, it’s never the same 😀

In my favourite Asian shop, they don’t have frozen proper Korean rice cakes. That leave me no choice but using the dried one (soak it for 24 hours before I can use it). But when I went to Stockholm last April, I found frozen rice cakes (proper one), I was so very happy (not for the price though). It is more expensive than the usual one I bought. But hey! It’s ok to spoil your self once in a while right? ^_^

Can you spot the steam there? 🙂


  • 250g Korean rice cakes (dried / frozen / fresh)
  • 2 tbsp hot pepper paste (Gochujang)
  • 1 tbsp hot pepper powder
  • 2 stalks spring onion, sliced lengthways
  • 1 small size onion, sliced
  • 1 small carrot, sliced
  • 100g meat (beef / seafood), thinly sliced the beef
  • 2 eggs
  • sugar
  • water


How to:

  1. Prepare a large pot / wok. Pour 3 to 4 cups water into the pot.
  2. Add hot pepper paste, powder and 1 tbsp sugar into the water. Stir until the paste dissolved.
  3. Add carrots, meat, onion. Cook until the water reduced by half.
  4. Add rice cakes and spring onion. If its thick already and your rice cake not fully cooked yet (it should be a bit chewy, not hard) add a little bit more water.
  5. Add eggs and take off from the heat. Let the remaining heat cooks the eggs. And do not stir the eggs.

    • Hi, hmmm… I forgot the name of the shop. It was long time ago. But I remember it was in the city. And there are 2 or more Korean Restaurants in the same road.

A nice comment will make my day ^^
