Korean rice cake is easy to prepare. It is very spicy and chewy in texture. This recipe originated in Korea. Rice cake is one of the most famous street foods for Korean people. It is also called Tteokbokki. 

When I prepared rice cake  for the first time, it went sticky and everything was messy. Because I have no idea about how to cook the rice cake and measurements. it will show or feel it is simple but actual fact is it is not. Rice cake cooking is a major task in this recipe. When I was a student, I was watching Korean serials and at that time I was furious about this dish. Recently I went through the Korean series again. My wish came to knowledge and I wanted to prepare so I searched many videos. After that I tried it a few times and got proper knowledge about rice cake. This simple recipe can be prepared at home and given to kids like a snack. 

Rice cake does not need many ingredients.. It needs a few ingredients that are available in our kitchen.  Usually plain rice cakes do not have much taste. Usually rice cakes are served with fish or soups. Here I made a twist like a snack, no soups and not added any fish items because iam a vegetarian. 

We need to use hot water when we knead the rice flour dough. Here, I take rice flour if you have time then soak the rice and grind it and heat it like a dough. It will be little time consuming and a long procedure. So I went to the store and bought rice flour and it saves time. After kneading, cut into a cylindrical shape and cook in hot water. 

For seasoning use sesame seeds, garlic, ginger, veggies. Then use the sauces whichever you want, here i used tomato sauce, red chili sauce and soya sauce. All these sauces give a nice taste to the rice cake.  Finally adding  cooked rice cake and once everything mixed the rice cake came with a beautiful texture and taste.
