Spicy rice cakes (ddeokbokki) is by far Korea's number one street food. But sometimes Koreans want something a little more fancy.
That's when they have hot pot style spicy rice cakes (jeuksuk ddeokbokki) at a sit down restaurant. At some places, there have set menus where rice cakes come with various types of sauces, veggies, noodles, fish cakes, and meats and brought to your table to cook. From the traditional spicy sauce to black bean sauce, there so many types of combinations you can choose from.
At other places, you can make your own ddeokbokki hot pot by picking and choosing what you'd like at a buffet style restaurant.
Today, I'm going to show you how to make the most famous type of hot pot rice cakes with traditional spicy red sauce.
Chewy rice cakes, ramen noodles, and various veggies are simmered in a spicy yet sweet red sauce. And instead of fish cakes, I'll use Inari sushi wraps (fried and marinated bean curd) which pairs nicely with this dish. It's packed with flavor and is so good that it brings tears to my eyes every time I make it.
With just a key cooking ingredients on hand, you can make this spicy yet addicting dish and bring back the memories you have eating street food in Korea. Enjoy :)
After going vegan, I missed eating Korean food I grew up with. Seeing the lack of resources on plant-based Korean cooking, I decided to develop and share delicious and easy vegan Korean recipes that anyone can make!
