Does anyone know the ratio of sugar:baking soda you use for making bboki?
I Googled Dalgona and Bbopgi and came up with some interesting results. It does not seam like it needs an exact ratio. Here is a vid of some kids making it. http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/lifestyle_lifestyle/watch/v979811mNhP87SN# Looks like they melted the sugar then threw in a bit of baking soda.
This is interesting reading. http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/06/snapshots-from-south-korea-bbopgi-sugar-and-baking-soda-candy.html
My wife says she got a few free ones when she was a kid.
powerplanttop, thanks a lot for posting the video clip!
I used to buy ppopgi when I was young! The video reminds me of my elementary school period! The ppopgi sellers were waiting right in front of my school to wait for the students to come out.
As you see in the video, it’s a very simple recipe. All you need is white sugar,baking soda, and a stainless ladle. : )
I will post the video recipe someday for fun! Or you can do it. : )
This does look fun to make.
@CrAsian – Glad you got inspired by my post. When I was little, I used to make it at home all the time with a regular stainless steel spoon. For a spoon of sugar, just a pinch of baking soda is enough. Recently, I made some for my BF, and I used a large metal serving spoon and 2-3 pinches of backing soda. Make sure to leave room on the spoon, because the sugar puffs up a lot. And most importantly, you will be tempted, but don’t lick the spoon! It will be HOT!!! Trust me, I know.
