  • 400g tteokbokki rice cakes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons gochujang (Korean red chili paste)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gochugaru (Korean red chili flakes)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 small carrot, sliced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 100g fish cakes, sliced (optional)
  • 2 boiled eggs, halved (optional)
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Soak the tteokbokki rice cakes in warm water for about 10 minutes if they are hard. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the gochujang, soy sauce, sugar, gochugaru, and minced garlic to form a smooth sauce.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and carrot, and sauté until they start to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the drained rice cakes and fish cakes (if using) to the pan. Pour in the water and the prepared sauce. Stir well to combine.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and the rice cakes become soft and chewy.
  6. Arrange the tteokbokki mixture on a serving plate in a cake-like shape. Place the halved boiled eggs (if using) on top as decoration.
  7. Sprinkle chopped green onions and sesame seeds over the top for garnish. Serve immediately while hot.

This Spicy Tteokbokki Cake is perfect for sharing with family and friends. Its unique presentation makes it a fun and exciting dish to enjoy, offering a deliciously spicy and savory flavor that is sure to impress. Enjoy this creative twist on a classic Korean street food favorite!
