RABOKKI – RAMEN + TTEOKBOKKI
A popular Korean snack meal – Rabokki recipe! Rabokki is all about spicy rice cakes and ramen noodles. It’s spicy, super delicious and addictive. Let’s cook it together!
WHAT IS RABOKKI
Rabokki (라볶이) is a Korean portmanteau for Ramyeon (라면, instant ramen noodles) and Tteokbokki (떡볶이, Korean spicy rice cakes). It is a popular dish to many Koreans, particularly amongst teenagers. It gives spicy, delicious and addictive flavor and is quite a filling food at a relatively cheap price. Probably that’s why it is popular.
I also prefer rabokki over tteokbokki as it often includes more interesting and delicious additional ingredients such as boiled eggs, ramen noodles, dumplings and so on, which aren’t normally added in tteokbokki.
WHAT’S IN RABOKKI?
The standard ingredients that go into rabokki are Korean rice cakes, ramen noodles, Korean fish cakes, cabbage leaves, spicy gochujang sauce and hard boiled eggs (to top it up).
But some people add Korean instant dumplings and deep fried seaweed spring rolls as well, and they go wonderfully together!
Also, some people might choose to add chewy noodles (jjolmyeon, 쫄면) instead of ramen noodles. Some people even add Korean ramen seasoning powder in addition to the spicy gochujang sauce.
Another ingredient you could add is sliced cheese. I forgot to add it this time, but I try to add it if I can.
Anyway, try this soon! You will love it.
