I really love carbs.
So in Korean food, when 떡 (rice cake) is an ingredient you know I'm in heaven.
떡 - Rice Cake!
It comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, flavours, and can be stuffed with yummy things or coated in toppings.
떡볶이 - Spicy fried rice cake
This is 떡 cooked in a frying pan and covered in really spicy sauce with fish cake, hard boiled eggs, and other ingredients like onion or ramen noodles :)
떡국 - Rice cake soup
This is super comfort food and is rice cakes served in a broth with egg, onion, and usually meat on top! You can also get this with 만두 (dumplings) in the soup too.
찹쌀떡 - Sweet Rice Cake
This 떡 is covered in a sweet powder and is much chewier and sticker than the 떡 used in 떡볶이. They are in smaller, bite sized pieces.
