The Best Tteokbokki Recipe


  • 3 cups water or anchovy stock/dashi
  • 400 g rice cake thawed if frozen
  • 2 sheets Korean fish cake defrosted and cut in bite-sized pieces
  • 2 green onion cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 2 soft-boiled eggs optional

Tteokbokki Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Gochugaru (Korean chili powder) more or less to taste
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey rice syrup or corn syrup
  • 3 tbsp Gochujang (Korean red chili paste)


  • Mix all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Bring water to a boil over medium heat. Add rice cakes and sauce. Stir around the skillet to combine, and boil for about 8-10 minutes until the sauce is thickened.
  • Add fish cake, green onion, and eggs, and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy!


Tteokbokki is best served immediately after cooking, as the rice cakes will naturally harden as they cool down.

Please note that the hard-boiled eggs are optional additions. Other popular toppings/sides include shredded ramen noodles, cabbage, fried dumplings,  glass noodles, or fried tempura.
