Nehal Tambe, Mumbai, Maharashtra: Tteokbokki is every K-pop/K-drama or Korean culture fan’s starter pack food. Tteokbokki (떡볶이) is a popular Korean snack that consists of rice cakes coated in a sweet-spicy sauce made of Korean chili paste and topped with vegetables. This is one of the first Korean dishes that fans get to know about, but as accessible as K-pop and K-dramas are to us, Korean food is still far from reach to most.

Let’s make it!
