  • I recently tried making Tteokbokki and I realized my first mistake was I picked up pre-made Tteokbokki sauce; it was unreasonably spicy! I have all of these ingredients already, so I'm thinking I'm going to have to make my own sauces from scratch from here on lol I don't mind spice, but I don't want to have to add as much spice-cutting ingredients to my food on top of drinking only milk with it like I did with the pre-made sauce...

  • So i tried to make this, and why you gotta lie/stretch the truth about the sesame oil, i had half a pound of sticky rice dough stuck to everything, AND I used nearly half a bottle of the oil after the small drizzle i did like you failed to keep it from sticking, now i am panicking with no idea what to do with all this sticky mess, i also pounded on it for half an hour to see if it would just firm up and unstick but it just made it worse, it did not firm up and become malleable at all. Idk if i did something wrong or not, as i started with straight up short grain sweet glutinous rice, and ponded it in a bread maker first.

  • It was so funny to find him making EVEN rice cake from scratch... lol Because, apparently even in Korea, almost no one make rice cake from scratch even if you make this dish at home... that's also because it's very easy to find the rice cake in Korea for Tteokbokki, though. It was so much fun to watch this episode as a Korean! (the way of making rice cake in the video was a little different from what people would do in Korea, but the recipe for making sauce was pretty much same as how Koreans do in Korea! So his recipe is bound to be delicious I guess! ;-))

  • I'm Korean and I've never heard of tteokbokki being made from glutinous rice flour. That would be WAY too chewy. They are usually made from plain rice flour (like in this video) or a combination of rice flour + wheat flour. Also you should NOT add sesame oil like he did in this video - It doesn't belong in tteokbokki and it's overpowering even if you put in a little bit!
