Korean style Fried Rice cakes
ingredients: 500g dried rice cakes (purchased from Asian grocers, white, flattened cyclindrical shapes...less than $2 for a 500g pack) 3 leek, sliced thinly 6 leaves of cabbage, sliced thinly. 2 clove of garlic, minced 4 tbs of gochujang 2 tbs sugar 5 crabsticks/ fishcakes, sliced thinly dash of sesame oil peppper 1 tbs oil 1/2 cup water
method: soak dried rice cakes for at least 12 hours. fry garlic in oil til fragrant. Add leeks and cabbage and cover the pan for ard 5 mins. Add rice cakes, crabsticks, gochujang, sugar n water and fry for another 3 minutes. Serve with a dash of sesame oil and pepper.
Comments: For a non-spicy version, substitute the gochujang and sugar for 4 tbs of oyster sauce, 1 tbs of light soy sauce, half tsp of sugar and 1/4 tsp of white pepper. I love the chewy texture of these rice cakes...pity about the long soaking time...this is a meal which requires planning! :)
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
