🙋‍♀️ What is Rice cake?

Rice cakes are a common ingredient in many Asian cuisines, and they come in various forms and textures depending on the region and preparation method.

In Korean cuisine, rice cakes are called Tteok (also spelled as “ddeok” or “tok,” 떡). They are made from either glutinous rice or non-glutinous rice.

There are four main groups of tteok: steamed tteok, pounded tteok, shaped tteok, pan-fried tteok, and numerous kinds of tteok within each group.

For this recipe of Honey Butter Tteokbokki , I used Garaetteok (가래떡), a long and cylindrical white rice cake, which is the most common type of tteok found in Korean cuisine.

In Vietnamese cuisine, we also have a variety of dishes made with rice flour, ranging from sweet to savory. On my blog, I’ve used Korean Tteok to create Bột Chiên , a Chinese-Vietnamese dish featuring fried rice cakes and eggs, served with a tangy soy sauce.
