"This is a very hot and spicy snack eaten all over Korea in homes and at food stands in the street. It consists of a lovely red sauce and chewy rice cakes which look like very thick, short noodles. If you're a spice lover and want to try a new texture, I would highly recommend this ddokboki, which we made with the kids at my school. It is always done to taste: some sweet, some hot, some with heavy garlic. You can imagine the variety we got with so many kids cooking it. Either way it is a definite Korean comfort food that you can experience with a quick trip to your Asian grocery store."

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Add rice cakes and fish cakes; return to a boil. Add simple syrup, gochujang, chile powder, garlic, salt, and pepper; cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add onion and green onion. Simmer until sauce is red, thick, and silky, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add all kinds of things to this. Egg, cheese, and ramen noodles are common here in Korea. It's really something to have fun with and make your own.
  • Leave out fish cakes to make it vegetarian or if you don't like fish flavors.
  • Use white sugar if you don't have simple syrup.
