    Hi Maanchi,
    Is there a way to make the rice cakes from scratch?
    I looked for them at my local korean grocery store, but i couldn’t find them :(

    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?

      Keep it in the freezer instead of the refrigerator, then thaw it out when you use it.

    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.
