Spicy Korean Rice Cakes - Ddukppoki

26 Nov 2010

Ddukppoki - Spicy Korean Rice Cakes. A very popular street food in Korea and now is commonly seen in Singapore too. Nowadays you can easily get the ingredients to cook this dish likes the Korean rice cakes & the chilli paste from NTUC, need not go all the way to Korean grocery shop. I find homecooked rice cakes fared so much better than those I tried before in restaurant and kiosk/stall. Believe me give it a try, you will know what I mean and maybe like me get hook to it.

I came across many Ddukppoki recipes and this one from Beyond Kimchee appeal to me the most. Her recipe uses stock and give a very clear step by step instruction. Very impressive! I tweeted the recipe a bit to whatever ingredients I had. Hop over to her blog for the original recipe if you are interested.

Original recipe adapted from Beyond Kimchee:
4.5cups Stock (Chicken/Ikan bilis)
600g Rice cakes (1 pkt)
4tbsp Korean red chili paste (gochujang)
1/2tbsp Korean chilli powder
2-3tbsp Brown sugar
2nos Brutwurst/hotdogs
1/2 Cabbage diced
1 Leek (sliced)
1 Garlic (chopped)
1tbsp Ketchup
1tsp Sesame seeds roasted
Pepper & sesame oil

1. Blanch rice cake in the boiling water for 30 sec to get rid of the excess oil & drain. Pan fried the sliced sauages, set aside.

2. Pour the stock to a non stick pan and add the chili paste, chilli powder and sugar. Mix well. Add rice cakes and cabbage. Boil over medium heat, reduce heat to medium-low, simmer uncovered until the cabbage gets soften and the sauce gets thicken.

3. Add the leek and garlic. Continue to simmer for another 10 minutes until the sauce gets well thickened to your liking. Add in the cooked sausages. Stir well.

4. Add ketchup and stir well. Sprinkle some pepper, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Serve hot.

Very spicy, flavourful, tasty & chewy! So nice! Yum yum yum...!!!
