So what is Danbokki? It's my own Dukkbokki recipe that I like to make. There are quite a few differences from regular dukkbokki. First of all, I don't use corn syrup or the malt syrup that most places use. Also, my sauce uses ghee as oil. I also add onions and cabbage and trapezoidal ricecakes. Honestly, I tend to wing it with the sauce, basically I make a spicy caramel sauce and then use this stuff to baste the rice cake and fish noodles (o-deng). I like the cabbage because it lowers the spicy and it gives it a light crunch.
Today, I wanted to give a more refined dukkbokki, so I added some green leaf thingies...Darn, I can't remember what the name is in Korean and yogurt. The greens added a bright springy flavor and the yogurt added a creamy cool.
The grapes were just for fun. Say hi to Hubble!
