Recipe : Baked Cheese Tteokbokki ( Korean Spicy Rice Cake with Cheese )

I don't know what happen with today, but I just had a feeling about writing a recipe! As much as I love cooking, I know I haven't done many recipes in this blog . It's quite hard though for me to write a recipe. Because most of the time, when I cook, I just use my palate until I get the flavor that I want, and I didn't measured it. I'm quite amazed with the food bloggers out there, that could do cooking, taking a beautiful pictures, writing the recipe and yet.... still have to do the cleaning afterwards. Man.... it's a lot of works! Oh maybe, I just have to look for a photographer ( future ) husband, so at least it will cut the loads. Lol. 

Anyway, in this post, I make some Korean comfort food, Tteokbokki ! In Korea, this is a street food that you can found it everywhereeee. I always love Tteokbokki ! But not everyone could do it right. Sometimes it's too tough, sometimes it's bland and just taste like eating a rice flour. That's why, for me, it's better to do more flavoring in the sauce to balanced the bland taste of the rice cake. And yes, Tteokbokki is better to enjoy while it's hot, because it's getting tougher when it's cold. You don't wanna break your teeth don't you! ;p

I had this kind of Baked Cheese Tteokbokki in the Korean restaurant before, and I loveeeee it! That's why instead of doing the original one, I prefer this one ! Cheese and Tteokbokki actually really goes well together. The creamy melted cheese combined with the spicy rice cake......... Yum! 

You can also add anything you want in Tteokbokki . In this recipe I'm just using Shimeji Mushroom, but it's totally up to you if you want to add some vegetables or anything. Oh... I also don't have any dried anchovies and kelp at the moment. Usually they use that for the stock, but don't worries! You can use a regular water or chicken stock, or for me... I just used some Dashi
I tell you what, it is very easy to make this Tteokbokki, and don't worry if you don't have the perfect ingredients. Just use your creativity, and you still can make simple dishes, with great taste. So... grab your knife and here we go!
