    I understand that it is near impossible to make your own ddeok?
    We bought a juicer in Korea, that were supposed to be able to make ddeok, but it comes out way too soft and wet, so when we try to make ddeokbokgi, it falls apart during cooking and it doesn’t taste like it is supposed to.
    Do you know of any korean shops around northern europe? Preferrably in Denmark, but if not then southern Sweden, northern Germany or England?

    Hi Maangchi! I’m wondering how long can u cook the thin sliced rice cake for. Will it go mushy if you cook it too long? If I want to use it to make ddukbokkie, how do I know when it’s done? Thanks!

        I’ve actually seen the recipe for ddukbokkie from your website and I’ve tried it with the thin oval shaped rice cake but it was a bit mushy. Have I stirred it for too long? or not long enough? Was I supposed to soak the rice cake first in cold water? thanks!

          oh, I see! You used the thinly sliced rice cake that is usually used for rice cake soup. Don’t cook it as long as you would cook the tube rice cake.

    I tried to find the rice cake to make 떡볶이, But I could only find a really thick and long 떡 rice cake…

    Can I still use that to make 떡볶이?

      Dear Maangchi,

      Could you please inform me how to buy a ddeok machine? I am trying to find this online but cannot find a place where I can buy the machine online. I used to live in Los Angeles, we always had deuk to make deuk soup and duek boki. My wife is Korean. Now we had military travel orders to go to Ankara, Turkey. Needless to say, there are no Korean stores here in Turkey. If I can find a way to make the long cylinder looking ddeuk (white rice or brown) then I can make at least two receipes that my 2 little children and wife really like. We miss being next to Korea town but we will be here in Turkey for at least 2 years. Any ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi all Singaporean korean foodies, just to let you know… there’s this korean store in Novena Square 2 (New Wing) that sells hand made korean rice cakes. They got a good variety of the rice cakes, the tube shaped ones, the ones for soup and even rice cake deserts. The bean paste sauce for dukkbogie is super thick and nice, handmade too… (Must try recommended). If you guys wanna try the sauce, pls try to be there early coz its sold out real fast…By the way, there’s a good korean restaurant beside it… also must try…
