Making Tteokbokki at Home

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. The ingredients or the readymade dish is not widely available. Even if it is, it’s quite expensive. So, what do we do? We create our own version! Korean food with Korean ingredients at home! Let’s make it!
