Dduk bok ki is a popular Korean dish made using hot pepper paste and rice cake. Hot pepper paste is usually available in Korean grocery shops. Some Chinese groceries sell it too. Rice cake is available in almost all Asian grocery stores.

I like the hotness and sweetness of this dish. I like to eat dduk bok ki when the weather is cold or when its rainy. It keeps your body warm. It is a quick and easy dish. It can be served for lunch or dinner.

Serves 2

  • 3 cups water
  • About 350g rice cake
  • 3-4 spring onions, cut into 4-5cm long pieces
  • 1 carrot, thinly slice
  • Few slices of fish cake
  • Handful of cabbage, roughly cut
  • 3 tablespoons of hot pepper paste
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar

  • Boil water in a pot on high heat.
  • Separate the rice cake tubes into individual pieces.
  • Put the rice cake tubes into boiling water.
  • Add hot pepper paste, carrot, cabbage, spring onions and fish cakes.
  • Add sugar and stir well. Make sure you keep stirring while cooking otherwise the rice cakes will stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • After few minutes, the sauce will gradually become thick and the rice cakes get soft and shiny. Now it's ready to serve. Serve it hot.

    I love, love, love dukbokki. Whenever I go to the Korean markets, I buy the one that comes with the sauce in little packets. Your recipe's definitely a keeper! It looks so good, just how I like it.
