Day 30 – Tteok

Well things have been busy around here. I’ve been away. I’ve been lazy. Sorry. I promise I will fill in the gaps with lots of amazing food. Honest.

This weekend we went to Wembley to watch TNA Impact Wresting. Little did I know the hotel we were staying in was barely a step away from the biggest Oriental Supermarket I’ve ever seen. Suffice to say, I’ve stocked up. I was not going to pay a tenner postage on Amazon. Now I have my glutinous rice flour. It’s time to make Tteok.

Ingredients

– 1 cup glutinous rice flour

– 1/3 cup boiling water

– dash of sugar

– dash of salt

– potato starch or corn starch

Apart from the elusive glutinous rice flour, the rest of the ingredients are easy to get hold of. Definitely recommend hunting for an Oriental market as opposed to buying online.

What To Do

1. Mix together all dry ingredients. (NOT starch)

2. Boil water

3. Pour over the dry mix.

4. Working quickly, combine the ingredients to form a ball. It shouldn’t be sticky so you may have to add more rice flour.

5. Dust a waxed sheet with the starch. Roll out the Tteok into whatever shape you fancy. It seems standard tteoks are 2″ cylinders or balls with filling.

These are so lovely, though I think possibly an acquired taste. They’re not as sweet as you would expect a ‘sweet’ to be but amazing if you know what you’re expecting. Will make these again, with fillings – when I get to a good store again. Thanks to EatYourKimchi.com for the video inspiration.
