Spicy tteokbokki in a bowl on the table
The Rice Paper Hack You Should Know For Your Homemade Tteokbokki
Korean tteokbokki consists of tteoks, or chewy rice cakes, in a spicy-sweet sauce. If you're fresh out of tteoks at home, you can transform rice paper into a substitute.
Rice papers are thin sheets of rice that can be rehydrated with water and rolled into a long log. Brush oil on the rolls so they're not sticky, then cut into cylindrical pieces.
Make the tteokbokki sauce with gochujang chili paste, honey, and soy sauce, adjusting to your own tastes. You can add water if the gochujang is too spicy.
Finally, cook your rice paper tteok-esque pieces in this sauce until they absorb all the spicy goodness. Finish off by adding cooked fish cakes, scallions, and sesame seeds.
