Rice Paper Tteokbokki (Korean rice cakes)

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


Tteobokki are Korean rice cakes, and this recipe will show you how to make them using Vietnamese rice paper. A classic Korean comfort dish made with a twist!


Units Scale
  • 12 rice paper sheets

For the soup base

  • 1/2 an onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small or medium carrot
  • 1/4 a cabbage
  • 600 ml hot water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp gochujang (Korean chili pepper paste)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  • 1 pack Korean ramen
  • 200 g tofu
  • 2 stalks green onions (the green part)
  • sesame seeds (to garnish)


  1. Wet the rice papers in cold water for a few seconds (no more than 5 seconds) one by one. Then stack 2 rice papers on top of each other and roll them until they form cylinder-shaped rice cakes. Keep repeating this step until you get long rice cakes.
  2. Cut the rice cakes into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. Chop the onion, carrot and cabbage into thin slices.
  4. In a pot or pan, add 1 tbsp oil followed by the onions, carrots and cabbages. Stir well until all the veggies are softened but still crunchy (about 2-3 minutes).
  5. Add in the gochujang, soy sauce and 600 ml boiling water.
  6. Mix well for a couple of minutes.
  7. Add in the rice cakes in the broth, followed by the ramen noodles. Let it simmer for 4 minutes until the ramen noodles are cooked and softened.
  8. Add in the rest of the toppings (tofu, green onions and sesame seeds). Let it simmer for 2-3 more minutes.
  9. Serve in a bowl/plate and enjoy!


The recipe should be ideally served in the same day (as the noodles and rice cakes get too soggy over time).
