Korean cuisine is one of my favourite cuisines. Visited South Korean twice in the last two yrs always leave me wanting for more. The food, the skincare, clothes and accessories... I like the korean rice cakes (ddeokbokki) and I know it can be prepared at home without having to pay for more in restaurants. I bought a pack of rice cakes, a pack of instant ddeokbokki sauce from a neighbourhood supermarket.

350g of rice cakes
200cc of water
5 fresh prawns, shelled (optional)
1 pack of instant ddeokbokki sauce
1 small yellow onion, sliced
cooking oil

** you can add other fillings like fish cakes, instant noodles, cabbage etc... it's your choice, really. :)

1) Saute the onion until softened, add the water
2) Add the rice cakes to the water to soften them,
3) Add the instant sauce and stir into the rice cakes. Let it boil for another 3 mins. Ready to serve.

I find that the longer you 'soaked' the rice cakes into the gravy, the better they taste. Bon Appetit!

Haha... I think they look decent rather than amazing, Gloria. hehe...It is just fun and economical when we can re-create the dish and spending little money without compromising the taste too much at the same time.
